Edge Offering

Edge Environment can assist with environmental audits and due diligence assessments, hazardous material inspections and the development of environmental management systems.

Environmental Audits and Due Diligence – We offer a customised solution to our clients to assess compliance against legislation and the organisational environmental management system. We have the ability to incorporate a wide range of environmental issues into the audit scope. Examples include climate change risk, energy and water efficiencies and some aspects of health and safety. We can also assist you in developing an electronic, paperless auditing program that can drive improvement through real time analysis and management.

Hazardous materials inspections – We develop risk registers and management plans and integrate these with our other due diligence solutions to provide a complete assessment of hazardous materials risk including asbestos.

Environmental Management Systems – We provide services to develop, implement and maintain Environmental Management Systems (EMS) for property clients and asset owners. An EMS can be aligned to ISO14001 if required or customised for an organisation based on their strategic objectives and goals. Our adaptive approach focuses the EMS on material issues and ensures a cost effective solution for clients.
