Environ – the international environmental, health, safety and sustainability consultancy – has made six appointments across its Edinburgh and Glasgow offices in response to increased demand from clients.

These appointments include Ron Bisset, an international specialist in the field of environmental and social impact assessment (ESIA) – who joins as a Principal Consultant – and Katharine Blythe, appointed as Senior Consultant in the unconventional oil and gas sector.

Environ employs some 1,400 people worldwide – including 150 consultants in the UK – and Matt Davies, Managing Principal of Environ Scotland, said:

“We are building on a strong position in Scotland and these appointments are further investment in our relationships with key clients in the energy sector, in particular oil and gas, renewables and power transmission.

“A return to confidence in the UK property market has also created further demand in property due diligence, environmental impact assessment (EIA) and contaminated land consultancy as clients seek out opportunities for development.

“This investment in new expertise will not only support our clients across Scotland and the rest of the UK, but also enhances our ability to serve clients working internationally in Russia, Eastern Europe, Africa and Asia Pacific – including our newest office in Burma (Myanmar).”
