The environmental consultancy market is, by any measure, expanding. Yet, what does the future hold for those entering the market? In essence the market will be split between three types of organizations: large environmental consultancies; niche players; and low‐cost providers of environmental services. Initial advantage will go to those firms offering services relating to energy efficiency and waste minimization. In the long term, however, advantage will go to those consultancies which are willing to use an active and involved approach with their customers, and at a lower margin than they may take now.
