Environmental Consulting explained

What is Environmental Consulting?

Environmental consulting is often a form of compliance consulting, in which the consultant ensures that the client maintains an appropriate measure of compliance with environmental regulations.

Environmental consultants work in a very wide variety of fields. Whether it be providing construction services such as hazard Assessments  or conducting environmental due diligence reports for customers to rid them of possible sanctions. Consultancies may generalise across a wide range of disciplines or specialise in certain areas of environmental consultancy such as air, water, noise, ecology, waste management.

Environmental consultants usually have an undergraduate degree and in the case of the Verde environmental consultants, a master’s degree in disciplines such as Environmental EngineeringEnvironmental ScienceEnvironmental StudiesGeology, Hydrogeology, or some other science discipline. They have deep knowledge on environmental regulations, which they can advise particular clients in the private industry or public government institutions to help them steer clear of possible fines, legal action or misguided transactions.

Environmental consulting spans a wide spectrum of industry. The most basic industry that environmental consulting remains prominent in is the commercial estate market. Many commercial lenders rely on both small and large environmental firms and will not lend monies to borrowers if the property or personal capital does not exceed the worth of the land. If an environmental problem is discovered, property owners that deem themselves a responsible party will most likely reserve monies in escrow in order to resolve the environmental impact.
