THIRD-PARTY EXTERNAL & ENVIRONMENTAL AFFAIRS CONSULTING

BUILDING LONG-LASTING RELATIONSHIPS THAT FACILITATE CONTINUITY OF COMMUNITY & NATURAL RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS

Native Environment Solutions LLC (NES) aims to be a trusted partner for bridging community relationships and environmental regulations.

NES is different from other environmental and archaeological consulting firms because we are led by Tribal and local perspectives on natural and cultural resources. The lack of Tribal and local perspectives in past environmental development have led to conflict and litigation that have compromised public relations, increased project budgets, and threatened successful permitting and project completion. Our experience working with Native communities ensures that environmental compliance is carried out in a manner that minimizes conflict, enhances public relations, and produces creative project solutions. We work with clients to develop tailor-made project planning designs centered on local values of the land on which projects are carried out. NES services provide win-win solutions for clients and the local communities in which they operate. NES achieves more respectful and efficient natural resource development for the new economic, environmental, and social challenges of the 21st century.

 NES provides a nexus that enhances the consultation and communication between natural resource development companies, Federal agencies, Tribal governments, and local communities throughout the permitting process.
