ENDS has been polling the environmental consultancy sector annually since 2002.
This year’s review, as always, generated fascinating insights into the state of the sector. It also shines a light on the key environmental challenges faced by the country generally.
More than 50 consultancy firms responded (see box), underlining the hugely diverse spread of organisations active in the sector.
All company sizes took part, from one-man bands to international operations with multi-billion pound turnovers.
Multidisciplinary leaders are represented, as well as niche specialists in areas from ecology to contaminated land, and sustainability strategy to energy and carbon management.
The survey respondents are a representative sample of the UK’s overall environmental, sustainability and carbon consulting market place.
