Which consultancy has the best reputation in climate change and renewables?

With climate change and renewables identified as one of the top growth areas, just behind waste management, this is clearly a dynamic sector and any changes to perceived reputation are sure have strong implications for future business.

As far as the customers are concerned, AEA Technology still holds first place in the renewables game, with Environ and Atkins in second and third place but still a considerable distance behind.

Although last year consultants did not share the customers’ admiration for AEA, the two groups have now come to agree and overwhelmingly voted for the consultancy as the top player in climate change and renewable energies.

Enviros, voted most reputable consultancy for renewables last year by the consultants, has now slipped down the table somewhat but retains a comfortable position.

Overall, the discrepancies between customers’ and consultants’ opinions have deepened in this sector – perhaps a sign of further changes to come.
