Various other employers of environmental consultants consist of: district authorities; central government; non-governmental and wildlife organisations; pressure and preservation organization.

The client bases of consultancies include all sectors of commerce and industry, in addition to local and central government, in the UK and globally.

In the longer term, opportunities are expected to be growing further afield in the developing regions of India, China and South America.
