The core professional expertise of our team is environment and natural resource management.

Environmental problem solving

Environmental management is highly regulated. Sometimes approval conditions and reporting requirements do not contribute value to environmental protection or business operations.

Further, a compliance mindset dampens creative thinking.

We are prepared to challenge assumptions and develop creative options with stakeholders at all levels to negotiate innovative solutions.

Project examples

Ecology fieldwork support. Safely delivering flora and fauna survey activities in remote Australian locations for one of Australia’s largest projects.

Multidisciplinary fieldwork. Water quality surveys, biocondition assessments, weed abundance surveys and mapping of regrowth for carbon offsets.

Motorway depot environmental review

Maintenance depot environmental and planning review. Transurban required a review to assess environmental risks, ISO14001 compliance, and plan for the future of the Illaweena Street depot.

Emerging environmental challenges

Over our careers, we have dealt with many emergent issues yet to be addressed through legislation or other means.

Our team members were pioneers in some, such as local government action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Recently, we have worked with government and stakeholders to understand the environmental risks posed by plastic pollution and identify effective responses.

We made a significant contribution to Queensland’s 2019 Plastic Pollution Reduction Plan, and its earlier work to implement a ban on lightweight plastic bags.

Reviews and audits

When you need ‘fresh eyes’ or an independent perspective, our qualified auditors can customise reviews or audits of your project or business using on-site and desktop techniques.

Our reports are succinct, high quality, and contain actionable recommendations.

Ecology fieldwork

Acquiring reliable field data often requires mobilising large teams at short notice to take advantage of favourable surveying times while keeping project delivery on track.

Losee Consulting assists clients who are leading environmental assessments with fieldwork and reporting, including flora and fauna surveys, water quality monitoring and vegetation assessments.
