ERM, the world’s leading environmental and sustainability consultancy has today completed the necessary steps to acquire Pacific Environment Consulting (PEC) and DLA from the parent company, EnviroSuite Limited. The remainder of the EnviroSuite business will operate independently from PEC, DLA and ERM.

With offices across Australia, PEC and DLA are market leaders in Air Quality & Noise, Contaminated Land, Groundwater and Surface Water consulting. Combining ERM’s global client relationships, leadership capacity and extensive environment and social consulting team with PEC and DLA will provide additional technical resources and senior leadership to increase ERM’s potential, with significant growth opportunities across Australia and into Asia.

ERM’s Chief Executive Officer, Keryn James, said, “Like ERM, Pacific Environment and DLA have developed a very strong reputation for professional excellence and client service. We have pursued this acquisition with great enthusiasm and we are confident that it will provide an opportunity to expand our respective offerings to existing clients, as well as a stronger capability and track record for us to pursue new clients in key markets together.”

Robin Ormerod, Managing Director, EnviroSuite Limited, said, “We are thrilled to announce this transformational deal with ERM. Our market-leading consulting business becomes a valued part of a highly respected global group, offering exciting career opportunities for the team. For EnviroSuite, working with the global leader in environmental management is an exceptional distribution opportunity and one that we expect will be a game changer for our business globally.”
