A few things we’re great at

When it comes to regulatory and standards compliance, experience matters. Ivana Strgacic, Strategies For The Environment founder and principal consultant, brings more than 20 years of experience in auditing, consulting, and training.


Management Systems are a tool for your organization to be more efficient and effective, not just something to satisfy your auditors.  Let our experienced consultants help align and build a management system that helps you achieve your strategic goals.  With over twenty years in the business we are here to help you.


Your people are your greatest asset.  Training is a key part to improving your business.  We can help with a variety of training options.  Our training courses can always be customized to your company’s needs.  


Auditing is an effective tool in driving continual improvement.  Understanding the current state of your management system or compliance with Environmental and Occupational Health and Safety legislation provides an organization with a clear path to improvement.  Our well seasoned auditors can help you achieve success.
