As a leading EHS management consulting firm with a global network of experienced EHS team partners, STC has in-depth knowledge and technical expertise of local / regional EHS requirements.
STP and STC maintain state-of-the-art EHS audit protocols for over 50 jurisdictions.

Using custom templates and advanced protocol features, auditors can easily track audit results and manage data over time to improve compliance, risk management and security performance. Additionally, STP’s formatting is compatible with leading providers of risk management and sustainability platforms.
