Strategen has created and prepared numerous rehabilitation plans and completion criteria in a variety of landscapes which have received approval from regulatory agencies including the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions (previously Parks and Wildlife), DMIRS, EPA and the Department of Environment and Energy (formerly DotE).

Strategen has particular expertise in designing rehabilitation programs that provide environmental benefits to offset significant residual environmental impacts of a project in accordance with the Western Australian Environmental Offsets Guidelines (2014) and EPA guidance under the government of Western Australia:
