RPS was founded in 1970 as the first professional environmental consultancy in the UK. RPS Group Plc has been listed on the London Stock Exchange since 1987.
Australian operations commenced in 2003 as part of a major global expansion into the energy sector. Since then, we have significantly diversified our service offering to include a wide range of technical disciplines across the infrastructure, urban growth, mining and natural resources sectors.
