Growth of M&A transactions in the Environmental Consulting sector

It is no surprise to see that, as @COP26 comes to a close today we can see the growth of M&A transactions in the Environmental Consulting sector. Whilst the overall market recovers from the Q2-2020 ‘low’, the proportion of deals that relate to consultants working predominantly in the field – renewable energy, environmental monitoring, ESG policy, climate change and related services. – has doubled from around 2% to over 4%. Still low, but certain to grow further. (The number of transaction in 2020 to October is already more than in the whole of 2020.)


What this means for owners of environmental consulting businesses is that the market is strong and it may be a good time to sell if your aspirations can be met. For buyers it means there could be significant upward price competition to complete a transaction.
