Independent Environmental Consultancy.

We are an environmental consultancy offering solutions to the energy, environmental and sustainability challenges faced by manufacturing & industry.

Truly Independent

We have learnt that “one size does not fit all”  when it comes to business solutions and a small independent manufacturing or engineering company will need a different level of environmental consultancy support to that of a worldwide manufacturer. With a wide network of associate environmental consultants built up through 20 years of working in the environmental regulation, certification and environmental consultancy sector, we can offer a tailored solution to suit a variety of business needs. We offer a range of environmental consultancy solutions for the modern manufacturing business, such as compliance to environmental legislation, cost saving through energy and waste reduction and planning consultancy.


All consultancy undertaken by us is always tailored to solve your particular problem and all of our associate environmental consultants are seasoned professionals well versed in dealing with the complex balance of having to comply with environmental regulation as well as satisfying business demands. We appreciate that you have to run a commercially viable business as well as having to comply with  the vast array of legislation and other obligations placed on you.
