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.
