PESTLE Analysis: Business Environmental Analysis
A PEST analysis is an analysis of the external macro-environment that affects all firms. P.E.S.T. is an acronym for the Political, Economic, Social, and Technological factors of the external macro-environment. Such external factors usually are beyond the firm's control and sometimes present themselves as threats. For this reason, some say that "pest" is an appropriate term for these factors. However, changes in the external environment also create new opportunities and the letters sometimes are rearranged to construct the more optimistic term of STEP analysis.

The SEFA workbooks allow the user to prepare an environmental footprint analysis as described in EPA's methodology. SEFA provides a spreadsheet-based means to document and process site-specific information from a cleanup project, resulting in metrics that reflect the project's environmental footprint. Information to be input by the user may be gathered from project documents, field records, and other existing resources. Automated calculations within SEFA generate outputs that help the user to determine which cleanup activities are driving the project's environmental footprint, and to adjust project parameters to reduce the footprint.

The Division of Environmental Analysis (DEA) administers Caltrans' responsibilities under federal and state environmental law. The Program develops and maintains Caltrans environmental standards, policies, procedures, and practices that are implemented by the Department's 12 District Environmental Branches. Program staff work with the districts to identify and assess the effects of Caltrans projects on the state's natural and cultural environments, and identify ways to avoid or mitigate those effects.
