Who we've done it for

Increasingly more and more businesses are involved in issues of biodiversity and the impact that their organisation has on the environment.

We’ve worked within traditional areas that you might expect us to such as property and development, transport, public sector, utilities and power generation. In these areas our client portfolio includes Halcrow, Mott MacDonald, Hyder, Lafarge, the Welsh Government, Wessex Water and ecotricity to name a few.

We’ve also worked with larger international wildlife organisations such as WWF and with brands such as Barcardi Together.

Through our base of specialists and industry experts and through our extensive network of ecologists we are able to work both on the smaller scale of specific work items within a compnay’s project as well as at the corporate strategic level providing analysis and input on biodiversity footprinting.
