Gen7 Environmental Solutions is the new name for a well‐established and full‐suite environmental services and consulting team based in Drayton Valley, Alberta. Gen7 Environmental Solutions, formerly Kandrea Environmental Ltd., is geographically‐focussed on providing oilfield environmental services within the West Central region of Canada. With 18 staff, and additional associates available to support other projects, Gen7 Environmental Solutions also serves clients on selected or exceptional projects across Alberta and into Saskatchewan.
In 2012 Ryan Radchenko and Larry Bonsan, senior managers with 20 years’ experience in the environmental consulting industry, launched a new venture based on a commitment to best‐in‐class client value, recruitment and retention of top quality staff, and professional and technical excellence. Rob Macintosh joined the company in 2014 as another Senior Partner, bringing over 30 years of experience in business management, corporate environmental consulting, and environmental policy and regulatory experience to the team.
The company name change flows out of the new ownership structure, and the desire to better reflect our unique position in the market, and our service vision for clients. “Gen7” references a genesis of today’s “sustainability” focus in the First Nations legal and governance precedent of the Mohawk and Iroquois Nations that required decisions to consider the needs of seven generations into the future – a core philosophy of operating with sustainability front of mind.
