WSP has been confirmed as one of the world’s largest and fastest-growing environmental consultancies in Engineering News-Record’s 2020 Top 200 Environmental Firms ranking. We now have the sixth largest environmental consulting business in the world, up from 16th place in 2019 and 38th in 2018, building on 10 years of consistent growth.
ENR’s annual ranking is one of the most important benchmarks for the consultancy sector, based on global revenue during the previous calendar year. The big leap up the table for the second year running reflects the progress we’re making towards our ambition to be the premier global environmental consultancy as outlined in the strategic plan.
We now employ 7,000 environmental consultants worldwide and our 2019 revenues were $1.72 billion, up 14 per cent from 2018. Our improved 2020 ranking is mainly due to strong 2019 organic growth of eight per cent, with the full benefits of key acquisitions still to be felt, said André-Martin Bouchard, Global Director of Environment.
“We have been able to leverage good market conditions through a client-centric, collaborative culture, and by developing high-performing teams, as well as the successful integration of previous acquisitions,” said Bouchard. “We expect to continue delivering strong performance despite the challenges presented by COVID-19. Integration activity is progressing well and we are helping clients to respond to the crisis by accelerating ESG programs, leveraging the green stimulus packages on offer, managing our clients’ liabilities and innovating new platforms for community engagement.”
