In doing so, we ensure that organizational policies, process management and personnel activities are aligned with regulations, your culture and the public image of your business.

  • Understand your fundamental imperatives and your strategic vision
  • In the discovery process, provide guidance, not sales talk
  • Provide the unbiased support you need
  • Work within your time constraints to perform to the best of our ability
  • Hold your company’s private information as strictly confidential
  • Work accurately and effectively without disturbing your operations
  • Do what we say we will do and deliver when we said we will deliver
  • Place your interest ahead of our own on every engagement
  • Tell you what we feel you need to hear to solve your problems
  • Find and resolve vulnerabilities before they become problems
  • Create an exemplary solution that reaches beyond regulatory requirements
  • Focus on proactive communication, personal accountability and responsiveness
  • Be forthright in everything that we say and do

We recognize the importance of contributing to community and society.

Principles. We believe that value chains include more than business units, systems, and technologies. The ultimate resource is people and relationships -and commitment to a common purpose that is clearly communicated and understood. So we think out of traditional boundaries, acting on principles as well as strategies, providing the innovative solutions our clients need. But it is our understanding of people — on personal and professional levels – that makes us excel. We believe in:

  • Open, honest, and effective communication
  • Concern for the environment and our society
  • Developing partnerships with outstanding companies
  • Building sound values within a network of relationships
  • Achieving customer delight, not just customer satisfaction

Responsibility. At Echelon Environmental, corporate social responsibility is not a buzzword – it’s a vital part of our business – and the way we behave in our personal and professional lives. Internally, Echelon is a transparent, open enterprise which lives by full disclosure and adherence to truth. We are a resource for businesses who cannot justify hiring full-time Health, Safety and Environmental Managers. We provide educational White Papers and informal advice when needed. We are forward thinking, and have developed a Waste Minimization Advisory to help reduce the increasing burdens on our environment. Echelon also provides funding for the operation of a small non-commercial family farming community in the Lowcountry of South Carolina. Moreover, Ron Harvey’s personal time is dedicated to the maintenance of this sustainable living family farm.
