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 face challenges including:

  • Tracking and complying with new regulatory and legal requirements that were recently "discretionary"-such as Dodd-Frank Conflict Minerals (DFCM).
  • Establishing a common understanding of DFCM requirements.
  • Obtaining an Independent Private Sector Audit (IPSA) for SEC filing (conflict minerals) that is effective, useful, and not overly expensive.
  • Concerns over support for information in Sustainability reports;
  • Concerns over consistency of non-financial information communicated officially (Sustainability reports) and using other mechanisms
  • Making business cases for Sustainability, or portions thereof. 
Doug has developed training sessions built around clients’ businesses, oper-ations and needs – not just repeating the requirements.  Popular topics include Dodd-Frank Conflict Minerals, Environ-mental Management Systems, and Audit Readiness.
