Lean Compliance Poster



Based on our experience working with hundreds of organizations we learned that many take a silo-ed and reactive approach to meeting their obligations. They also wait until they have been audited or for a serious incident to occur before they improve their compliance.

As a result, over time their risk increase, promises are not kept, and they lose the trust of their stakeholders. Some may even lose their business. We call this The Reactive Uncertainty Trap.

Download our Lean Compliance Poster that shows how you can escape this trap.

The Environmental Golden Thread



The number of initiatives directed towards environmental regulations, standards, and stakeholder obligations is increasing across all levels of governments, private sectors, and the public at large.

However, it is at the municipal level where this is most acute as almost everything here intersects with the environment. Municipalities are where public policy comes face to face with the environment. It is where the rubber metaphorically and physically meets the road.

To better understand how are contending with environmental objectives we compiled a list of environmental initiatives across Canada. This data includes: key goals, objectives, policy influences, and municipal resources summarized into what we are calling The 12 Environmental Pillars.
