Our History

Core6 Environmental launched in 2012 with six founding partners who’d worked together since the mid 1990s. With a philosophy of keeping things simple and seeking efficient solutions, Core6 Environmental has continued to grow through repeat business and word-of-mouth. While the company was founded in Vancouver where our head office remains today, our projects are delivered by staff located in Vancouver, Victoria, Kelowna, and the Comox Valley.

We’ve never been more excited to share our passion for quality science and client service!
