Douglas Hileman Consulting, LLC
Business Solutions for Environmental and Sustainability Challenges
Industry Experts in Auditing Principles, Programs and Audit Life Cycle

We apply business principles to identify, prioritize, and leverage opportunities and manage risk in Environmental and Sustainability. 

Our clients are often experiencing:

  • More requirements for data and reporting from regulators, shareholders, business partners, trade groups, and other stakeholders
  • More activities addressing Environmental or Sustainability issues, but uncertainty as to effectiveness
    Painful awareness that Environmental and Sustainability poses costs, and a vague awareness that there should be a return on investment
  • Multiple – and changing - IT and business systems, and ground rules for financial reporting and disclosure
  • More demands and fewer resources. 
Doug has developed training sessions on “Audit Readiness.”  Companies provide training for auditors – but not for auditees, leaving a weak link in their compliance and risk management programs.
