‘RPS is the only member of the class of 2008 still to hold its place at the very top’ of the environmental consultancy table in Environment Analyst’s newly released annual research report.
RPS leads the Top Five of the environmental consulting firms in the report which is based on the financial statistics and detailed company profiles of the sector’s thirty leading practices in the UK – which together accounted for 71.6% of the total UK environmental consultancy market for 2016. Also in the Top Five are WSP, AECOM, Arcadis and Jacobs.
The report notes increased staff numbers across the Top 30 and an overall strong demand across multiple client sectors, especially in Infrastructure & Development and regulated industries. Water Quality & Resource Management and Ecology & Landscape services feature as strong work areas.
