Environmental Management Consulting

Why IBM Limited?

Our goal is to green businesses through decarbonisation, promoting the principles of a circular economy, environmental risk management and developing client-specific integrated environmental, quality, occupational health and safety management systems.

As an environmental consultant, there are loads of industries that IBM will consult for. We will work for commercial, industrial and government sectors including manufacturing, construction, water resources, oil and gas, agriculture, mining, and a host of other industries as long as they have things to do with the environment.

Our strength comes from having the skills and capability for integrating the core areas of environmental sustainability and in assessing an entity’s environmental footprint to inform on the mitigation strategies and continuous improvement.

It is worth noting that IBM will focus and assist clients attain their environmental business goals as they relate to ‘Environment, Social and Governance (ESG).

Industry Overview

The environmental consulting industry is made up of firms that offer advice to businesses and governments on environmental issues such as controlling environmental contamination. Environmental consultants identify problems, measure and evaluate risks and recommend solutions. A standard environmental consulting firm employs a multi – disciplined staff of scientists, engineers and other technicians.

A close study of the environmental consulting industry in Uganda shows that the industry has experienced varied results over the years, as an increasing emphasis on environmentally sustainable behaviours has been offset by a lack in government regulations.

On the other hand, rising private investment as a result of improving economic conditions, coupled with an increasing focus by consumers and organizations on reducing human impact on the environment, has more recently renewed revenue growth for the industry.

Disasters like flooding have boosted demand for consultants due to the need for emergency site remediation and clean-ups. The future of environmental consulting in Uganda and within East and Southern Africa is promising. Environmental regulations are anticipated to increase, particularly in the areas of infrastructure development and renewable energy.

The Environmental Consulting industry in Uganda is small and focusses mainly on Environmental Impact Assessments (EIAs) for large infrastructure projects and real estate developments. The industry is largely composed of small operators, many of which are non-employers. Relatively high-profit margins and low barriers to entry allow many small businesses or sole proprietors to enter this industry and provide consulting work in their field of expertise.

One good thing about the environmental consulting business is that there are readily available markets for our services. This is so because in most cases, organizations that are looking towards achieving excellence and good results in any of their environmentally inclined projects would naturally want some professional touches hence the need to hire the services of environmental consulting firms.
