Sustainable Development

Sustainable development has many definitions and means many different things to people and the organisations that support them or they work for.

As a leading environmental consultancy, our service offering supports our clients’ development needs of the present, without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.


At its core, sustainable development is an approach to planning and development that looks to balance different, often competing, needs against an awareness of the environmental impact. ESI regularly reviews both legislation and the moral obligations placed on developers, infrastructure, and utility companies and use specialist hydrogeological, hydrological and land quality expertise to help them understand their liabilities and deliver solutions.


Well designed buildings and homes should be sustainable, practical and affordable; the right approach helps to create places where people want to work and live. Through effective support in the design and development stages sustainability in building helps to reduce the impact on the planet’s resources, reducing waste and carbon emissions.
