Tyneside Environmental Consultancy Bucks Recession Trend
Tyneside environmental consultancy Terra Infirma Ltd has increased its turnover by 15% in the last financial year, despite the recession. The company, which specialises in helping organisations develop and implement environmental strategies, has recently signed new contracts with the National Health Service and the European Union.
Company director Gareth Kane said “We are very pleased with these results, and even more pleased with the amount of work coming through the doors. While some companies are battening down the hatches, others realise that going green is a survival strategy in itself. An effective environmental strategy will cut costs, avoid regulatory problems and provide product differentiation in the market place.”
Terra Infirma’s successes come against a background where over 100 major UK environmental consultancies are thought to be in serious financial trouble . Gareth Kane believes that a mixture of innovative marketing, a flexible ‘virtual’ structure and a strong track record of delivery is putting Terra Infirma ahead of bigger rivals. This is reflected in the international nature of the company’s operations. “We’ve sold green business guides across the globe from Canada to New Zealand and we’re currently in negotiation with clients in Saudi Arabia and Singapore” added Gareth “While the immediate future holds many challenges, we’re confident of going from success to success.”
