As the Principal of Red Dragon Consulting, I would like to give my heartfelt thanks from my family and me, by saying, I am extremely grateful to live in the Okanagan in British Columbia which is within of the unceded territory of the Syilx Okanagan peoples.
There is a word in Welsh that resonates with me and helps me with my Canadian learning journey regarding the importance of land acknowledgments:
(especially in the context of Wales or Welsh culture) a deep longing for something, especially one's home, quote; "I could not begin to put into words the hiraeth that the Welsh feel for the mountains and valleys of their homeland"
Red Dragon Consulting Ltd strives to work in harmony with our surrounding environment to prevent harm to people, communities, heritage and the holistic environment. We believe that everyone has a role to play in creating a safe working environment.
Our strategy is to act with exemplary regard for the requirements and expectations of our clients, partners, communities, stakeholders, governments and industry to provide the highest standards of commitment.
Our objective is to minimize the impact of our daily activities and services to the natural assets and landscapes we work within. We will encourage best practice emergency planning, environmental and engineering design throughout our organization and clients to deliver a resilient and effective service for future generations.
We work to ensure we interact positively with the communities in which we operate. Effective communication is important so that all those who work for us on our behalf are aware of their responsibilities to ensure these high standards.
In application, we always aim to implement innovative methods to enhance decision-making, situational awareness, strategic risk identification and design so they are not only cost-effective using a cost-benefit analysis but also provide future resiliency from unforeseen, human intervention and climatic events.
Sustainable management and resilient projects have always been in the heart of our founder due to his experience in the federal government publishing public safety, flood risk and incident management strategies for future generations.
