Auditing and Due Diligence
Umwelt offers extensive knowledge and guidance in the field of environmental auditing and due diligence review. Our auditing team (which includes lead auditors) is supported by in-house technical specialists in auditing specific environmental aspects for biodiversity, rehabilitation, cultural heritage, noise, surface water, groundwater and social aspects.
We provide environmental operational support for government, infrastructure, defence, resources, construction, industry and more.

We can provide full environmental site support with on-site personnel, compliance management, technical support and reporting. Targeted support assists client teams during times of increased site workloads or where site personnel may be unavailable. Your staff can also be given the correct training and operational experience to meet your on-site needs.

Environmental Compliance and Risk Management
Effective environmental compliance management is a critical component of good business.
Our compliance management systems identify and address environmental issues in a practical way. They must meet operational needs, demonstrate a focus on relevant statutory requirements and facilitate real improvements in environmental performance, community relations and business outcomes. We can work with existing client compliance systems, or deliver tailored compliance management systems that complement on-site and corporate management programs.
Accredited risk assessment facilitators can assist with your risk assessment programs, or design and implement a risk management framework for you. They are adept at delivering risk workshops from high level, whole of business corporate risk assessments, through to issue and site-specific assessments.
Environmental performance and compliance reporting includes statutory, public environment and internal corporate reports. Maintenance of onsite compliance and risk management systems is also provided.
