Arup has been announced as the winner of the Best Environmental Consultancy Award at the 2012 Sustainability Leaders Awards.
This is the first time that the Sustainability Leaders Awards offered just one prize for ‘Best Consultancy’ and the independent market research agency, Accent, surveyed a cross-section of Sustainable Business magazine readers to determine the finalists.
The survey reviewed procurement habits, how businesses engage consultancies, the number of live projects and annual spend on consultancy services. Participants were asked to vote for their award winner by ranking their top three consultancies in order and Arup topped the list above AECOM, Atkins and WSP.
“It is great to be listed alongside some of the world’s best known firms working in the environmental field that are demonstrating leadership and innovation. This is confirmation of Arup’s substantial reputation as one of the UK’s leading environmental consultancies.”
— Michael Bull, Director and UK Environmental Consulting Business Leader, Arup
The awards, which are one of the few environmental awards schemes accredited by the RSA, are hosted by edie and Sustainable Business magazine. The full list of award winners and finalists will be published in the next issue of the magazine.
