Atkins focuses on improving environmental management performance, risk and liability management and competitiveness for its clients, helping to deliver savings and efficiencies in time, cost and resources.
It is widely recognised that our planet’s resources are limited, that our ecosystems are at risk of being damaged further or even destroyed and that climate change poses a real threat to both the existing and future built and natural environment.
A holistic, long term approach to assessment and solutions based on a sound understanding of the complex interactions between economic, social and environmental issues is essential if sustainable outcomes are to be achieved. The early integration of sustainability considerations into a policy, plan or project development process is also critical to ensuring a long term liveable future.
As well as being one of the largest and most successful international environmental consultancies, Atkins also supports a liveable future by providing environmentally-led infrastructure consultancy. We drive adaptation of the natural and built environment in the face of complex environmental change and development demand, ensuring the balanced management and protection of our natural and heritage assets.
Ensuring enhanced environmental performance
Our global network of experts is on the cutting edge of the international climate change debate and advises governments on policies and methodologies to adapt and mitigate its impact. We help businesses respond to these new government measures as well as proactively driving the journey to a low carbon economy.
