You may or may not have noticed, things have started to look a little different around here. Don’t worry, it’s still the same great team and service, the packaging is just a little different. Because of this, we wanted to share a little bit about the changes and the story behind them.
What was once known as WM Compliance Solutions is now WM Environmental. You might be wondering why we changed our name, and our colours, and our logo. So even if you’re even just a little curious, we suggest you keep reading.
When we first launched WM, our vision was clear — to provide an end-to-end environmental compliance service that fills a gap in the market for our clients. While that concept remains key to how we operate our business, we have found over the past few years that our growth has exceeded our expectations, which we continue to be appreciative of.
A lot of the work we were doing in the early stages included resource consent applications, environmental reporting and compliance management — the main things you would look for from an environmental compliance consultancy. Despite the fact that these services were working really well for us, and for our clients, we just simply couldn’t fight the urge to keep developing. We wanted to branch out and the people we were working with wanted more assistance. So naturally, we chose to give them what they were asking for and it’s been a win-win ever since.
The reason for changing our name to WM Environmental was to represent what we actually do. It’s not all just about compliance, we do a whole lot more than that and needed a name that reflected our all-encompassing approach to environmental support. With the introduction of a subdivision and land use consent application service along with environmental planning and policy services, it made sense to let people know that we really do cover all of the bases.
As for the colour changes and logo revamp, much like a “new year new hair cut’’, there’s nothing like a fresh look to compliment the changes we’ve made. The logo also signals our connection to the earth and water. While we thought a big launch party might be a little too much, we did want you to know why we made the shifts we have and involve you in the next step of our journey. After all, we wouldn’t be where we are today without you.
So here’s to you for taking this next step with us, we can’t wait to see what the business will shape up to be in the next few years and beyond.
