Few states in the U.S. have as much natural beauty as Hawaii. Whether you're looking for volcanoes that reach for the clouds, or coral reefs in clear blue Pacific waters, the Aloha State has what you're looking for.
It comes as no surprise, then, that regulatory agencies - from small local organizations to the Federal United States EPA - want to do their best to protect every beautiful grain of sand that Hawaii has to offer. As a citizen or tourist to Hawaii, that's great news. As a business owner, not so much.
Since Hawaii is positioned so far from the lower 48, it can be tough to find a quality team of environmental consultants to help you with your environmental program. That's where we come in!
Whether an EPA inspector told you that you need an SPCC Plan, you want to start your very own sustainability program, or anything in between - we're ready to help your business stay on the right side of the law and public perception in Hawaii.
Most operations in the United States subject to environmental regulations should focus on regulations coming from the Federal government, their respective state environmental agency, and any local agencies (regional, county, or city). However, additional concerns outside of the realm of environmental regulations, such as Environmental Justice issues, can impact facilities in areas where no other regulations might apply. Also bear in mind that regulators at any level, from the Federal government to your local community, can, within reason, visit your facility or ask for a demonstration of compliance, especially when it comes to obtaining new permits, renewals, facility construction, modification, expansion, etc.
Getting into compliance is like buying a car - how much you'll spend depends on what you need. For locations with few regulatory concerns, environmental compliance can be a cheap and easy thing. For large, complex operations, environmental compliance could cost a small fortune. There's different ways of looking at it too, from regulatory fees paid to government agencies, to the costs of hiring consultants or other outside help, to facility modifications, ongoing compliance tasks, and more.
Just like the price, the timeframe all depends. Some compliance concerns can be identified, the proper paperwork filled out in a few hours, and once you mail that documentation out, you're "in compliance" with environmental regulations. Other regulatory concerns take months to years to apply for, revise, and ultimately get permits and approvals. Again, smaller, simpler operations tend to be able to get into compliance very quickly, while larger, more complex facilities will take much, much longer.
