Happy Birthday To Us!
Terra Infirma was established exactly a year ago today with the mission to bring sustainability to industry, communities and other organisations. In 12 months we have been directly employed by 10 clients ranging from Government Departments to micro businesses, worked with over 100 organisations face to face through those contracts, and communicated with many thousands of people through articles, blogs and on-line forums. The next year looks highly promising too with some fantastic projects in the pipeline.
Laying the self-congratulation aside for a moment, this success is probably not surprising given the UK’s environmental consultancy market has risen to £1.5bn a year, pretty much doubling from 10 years ago (source: ENDS). The biggest contributor to the sector is land remediation, followed by waste management – suggesting that most money is still to be made cleaning up existing pollution rather than redesigning systems to avoid environmental problems in the first place, the service we provide to our clients.
This blog is one of the features that we will be maintaining into the next year – we hope you will keep reading and please do not hesitate to get in touch via email@example.com if you would like to discuss any sustainability issue with us. Now where’s that champagne…
