SKM to acquire Enviros sustainability firm

Engineering, sciences and project delivery firm Sinclair Knight Merz (SKM) has signed a Sale and Purchase agreement to acquire Enviros, a multi-disciplinary sustainability, environmental and health and safety consultancy in the UK.

The transaction is expected to complete within the coming weeks. Enviros has leading in climate change and renewables, compliance management, health and safety, sustainable development, and waste and resource management. The firm works across many industries in both the public and private sectors.

Since 1996 SKM has completed 56 mergers and acquisitions which have been central to the firm’s strategy to grow with its clients and deliver the world’s leading skills locally, SKM said.

Recent feedback from clients indicated that almost half think that climate change is a significant short-term risk, with this concern increasing to seven in ten when a 10 year time frame is considered, a press release from SKM said.

This acquisition is an immediate response to client need and expands SKM’s capabilities, with Enviros people bringing great skills in sustainable development, climate change and strategic consulting generally, and bolstering the firm’s European presence, the company said.

“The synergies are powerful and obvious. Our growth continues to be driven by the expansion of our clients’ needs and operations. We remain in a perfect storm of economic, social and environmental challenges. Helping our clients meet those challenges and making the most of the opportunities they represent is part of our DNA,” said SKM chief executive officer and managing director Paul Dougas.

“The fact is that Europe leads the world in sustainability, climate change and environment, and Enviros is a leading firm in this space. This expands our strategic consulting capability which we already export globally through our virtual teaming approach and many centres of excellence.”
