MGM Management assists our clients by carrying out environmental investigations and audits. These can be the cornerstones of creating an environmental management system ( EMS) to meet your legal and civil law responsibilities. Mark McKenney was formerly a senior Manager in the Ministry of the Environment's - Investigations and Enforcement Branch, responsible for thousands of such investigations.

We can assist you in understanding, before or after an environmental event, the exact circumstances that occurred. Often this can serve as the foundation of a "due diligence" defence if quasi-criminal prosecution is launched by authorities. Often, if completed prior to an event, this approach allows management the opportunity to correct deficiencies before problems arise. Our Investigative and Audit Services include:
