Over the recent past decades, corporations and communities have become sensitized to the importance of being stewards of the environment and are often challenged to balance the necessity to be environmental friendly with desire to grow, develop, and commercialize. As a result, the growing environmental concerns of these organizations have led to an increasing number of compliance requirements and regulations that are designed to protect our land, air, and water by preserving our environmentally sensitive areas, reducing pollution, and controlling the release of hazardous materials.
