We have over 330 environmental consultancy services companies in Wales, employing around 2,500 people. Annual sales exceed £150 million, shared between homegrown businesses and a cluster of global consultancies.

Major players here include ARUP, a Cardiff-based supplier of leading-edge environmental and planning support. Other key names include AMEC, Balfour Beatty, Biwater, Laing O’Rourke, CH2M, WS Atkins, WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff and Mott MacDonald.

We also have a number of specialist companies here, providing niche services, such as laboratory and geo-environmental analysis.

Alcontrol is one of the UK’s leading names in environmental testing, with two laboratories in north Wales. PetroStrat of Conwy, also in north Wales, provides high-quality analysis and biostratigraphic consultancy.

Chemostrat, based in the mid Wales town of Welshpool, undertakes chemostratigraphy work for the oil and gas industry.

Alongside these larger firms, Wales also boasts a high number of microconsultancies. These firms – some with fewer than five employees – work in defined niches such as impact assessment, due diligence, wastewater management, air pollution, contaminated land remediation and ecological land management.
