Executive Summary

The North American EH&S services sector is confident about growth over the next five years.  Continued economic growth, supply-side consolidation of EH&S service providers, engagement opportunities in the fast growing asset-intensive sectors, and the growing demand for services on the opportunity side of risk management, will collectively reshape the market for EH&S services. Environmental consulting practice leaders must ensure their business plans cover the critical business assumptions on the demand drivers they are exposed to, competitive factors, and innovation areas, as well as linkages with information management and health and safety practice areas.
