Burgeoning environmental regulations are a challenge to all types of businesses. Most try to comply with environmental regulations, but the sheer number of detailed requirements makes it difficult to assure compliance.

As government agencies focus on environmental enforcement (including criminal sanctions), businesses are implementing formal environmental compliance auditing programs to identify and correct discrepancies before they result in violations. These programs also demonstrate an organization's commitment to environmental compliance.

SCS Engineers is one of the few consulting firms that specialize in environmental engineering services before the US Environmental Protection Agency was formed in 1970. SCS professionals understand environmental regulations, and have the experience to help clients find a practical approach to attain and maintain compliance. Our services include:

  • Environmental Compliance Audits
  • Technical Negotiations Regarding Compliance Issues
  • Environmental Management Systems
  • Strategic Environmental Management
  • ISO 14000 Services, Including Gap Analysis and Implementation
  • Waste Minimization
  • Full Cost Accounting for Environmental Systems
