Capabilities

Environment North fills a very special niche at the interface between the environment and development.

We have in-house skills incorporating civil and environmental engineering, natural resource management, environmental management of heavy industry, and environmental planning. These are coupled with extensive experience in environmental legislation, approvals and permitting. These skills and experience mean that the company is well-positioned to advise on a wide range of issues including land development and resource utilisation, infrastructure development, planning for biodiversity conservation, and recreation and tourism. This advice is typically sought by both private and public sector clients and spans both development and conservation objectives.

From this varied work we have developed an understanding of the needs and complexities of industry and infrastructure providers. Hence, we can relate these needs and complexities to regulatory authorities in a way that is conducive to producing good environmental outcomes that are of benefit to all parties. Equally, when advising public sector clients with a conservation focus, we are able to incorporate private sector financial perspectives that can lead to better community outcomes.

Our ability to draw on and value-add to the inputs of independent experts, or, to work within a client’s existing team, results in a customised and appropriately-resourced approach to every job.
