Expertise in Delivering Net Zero Infrastructure

Climate change, decarbonisation and ensuring national energy security are defining issues for our future.

The UK and Ireland have a legal obligation to be ‘net zero’ by 2050. Delivering new and upgraded infrastructure quickly and effectively is critical.

We have been helping our clients secure community support and relevant consents for their projects for over 40 years and we are ideally placed to support the industry as the necessary scale of change continues to increase exponentially.

Our expertise in delivering Net Zero Infrastructure

As independent advisors, we have an extensive track record in securing relevant consents for Net Zero Infrastructure projects of scale and significance across all regions of the UK and Ireland. 

Our experience tells us that there are four interconnected services which lie at the core of successful infrastructure proposals:

  • Planning: Effective consenting strategy with support from key technical disciplines.
  • EIA: Environmental leadership and full integration with design and permitting process.
  • Strategic Communications: Tailored presentation with effective engagement with key consultees and communities.
  • Sustainability and Energy Security: Clearly articulating the benefits to the climate emergency and quantifying the greenhouse gas savings.

We have found this approach, integrated at the core and blended with our other services when appropriate, as visualised below, to be successful and effective across all development sectors, regardless of how new or controversial the project.

Securing consent across the development lifecycle

Securing consent across the development lifecycle

Different types of consent require bespoke approaches for success. As trusted advisors we proactively integrate relevant experience from across our service to navigate each stage of the development lifecycle, providing expert deliverables that secure consents for varied Net Zero Infrastructure.
