Included in our ‘Innovators in Sustainability’ series, we interviewed the company’s Heidi Wilson to find out more about what they do.

Their key focus is on renewable energy, built environment, low carbon technologies as well as environmental permitting and planning. They also offer a wide range of corporate compliance and environmental management services for the industrial, commercial and development sector. Heidi Wilson starts by telling us what the company can do for you and the range of services that they offer. “In terms of planning and sustainability, we can provide a full scope of services to support your organisation, from project inception to final construction and operation. Concerning renewable energy and low carbon technology, Sol Environment have an established a core of high value services, specifically tailored to the renewable energy and generation sector. “With the advent of the Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control Directive 1999, the EU Emissions Trading Scheme in 2005 and the forthcoming Industrial Emissions Directive, more processes than ever require regulation through environmental permitting. In this context, our environmental permitting and regulatory assistance services could prove to be very useful to you. “Also, industrial and commercial compliance and assurance can be a moving target, with many companies unaware of new developments in environmental regulation and their exposure to potential liabilities. On the company’s business sustainability and environmental management services, whether your site would like to improve its environmental performance, become certified to an international ems standard or has a specific environmental issue that it would like to resolve, Sol Environment should be able to assist.” In summary, Sol Environment provides support to the following sectors: • Residential and commercial developers; • Waste to energy technology providers; • Architects, planning and engineering consultants; • Industrial and general manufacturing sectors; • Power, wastes and renewable energy sector and; • Land and asset management companies. Sol Environment is unlike many commercial consultancies, in that it is formed through a wide network of experienced independent consultants, technical experts and sector specialists Heidi underlines. In closing, she also provides a flavour of the clients they serve and the three main reasons for choosing Sol Environment above anybody else. “Sol Environment’s strategy is to provide our clients with highly competitive, multi-disciplined environmental consulting advice, delivered as a single team, by the best practitioners. Sol Environment’s strength lies in the ability to source, provide and tailor a dedicated project team that is client or project focused, highly experienced and able across all disciplines. “The company’s client and project list is growing all the time.

Secondly, Sol Environment’s close alliance with select consulting partners gives us a much larger breadth and market presence than our size would imply.
