Sustainability Delivery Group

Harnessing the expertise to deliver sustainability

Will sustainability be a casualty of Covid-19?

We launched Environment Analyst, a market intelligence business, in 2008 into the teeth of the global financial crisis. Customers turned to us for intelligence to help navigate market shock waves – as the development sector collapsed, private sector clients switched their priorities towards survival rather than sustainability, and later as government austerity kicked in.

Now, as our customers grapple with Covid-19, our aim is to reapply some of our learnings from 12 years ago, and once again deliver the intelligence the environmental sector needs as it charts a route towards a brighter future.


Let's hope this time sustainability strategy is not a casuality of the crisis. We want our new Sustainability Delivery Group to showcase the talents of the environmental and sustainability consulting sector and help clients and wider stakeholders think holistically and creatively as they plan for post-crisis opportunities.

Sustainability Delivery Group purpose

The Sustainability Delivery Group aims to harness the environmental and sustainability consultancy sector’s potential to deliver sustainability.

The Group's objectives are to:

  • Improve the value proposition of the environmental and sustainability consultancy industry

  • Drive forward the industry's leadership role in providing innovative solutions to mitigate the climate and biodiversity crises

  • Listen carefully to client sectors' needs and promote stakeholder dialogue with consultancy practice leaders

We also seek to:

  • Inspire the next generation of sustainability leaders

  • Promote diversity and inclusion

  • Promote international business opportunities

  • Represent the whole environmental consulting sector, large and small, specialist and multidisciplinary


Allied to these objectives is that the Group seeks to facilitate partnerships, in line with SDG 17 (the UN Sustainable Development Goal on partnerships). This is relevant on two levels:

  • promoting dialogue with client sectors and other influential stakeholders;

  • building a shared sense of purpose within the environmental sector itself.
