WSP acquires Swedish environmental software company Natlikan

WSP has acquired Natlikan, the Swedish based environmental software company. The purchase has been made by WSP Sweden AB and the business will initially be called WSP Natlikan.

Natlikan will become part of WSP Digital, the company’s global environmental technology and software business. They will be based in Sweden and will work closely with WSP’s environmental and energy consulting business both in this region and internationally.

Natlikan has over 20 years of experience designing, building and selling web based environmental solutions integrated with environmental consultancy in the corporate sector. The company’s clients include: Bombardier; Rolls Royce; Volvo; Alfa Laval; Danske Bank; and ABB.

Henry Okraglik, Global Director of WSP Digital says that the acquisition of Natlikan is a perfect complement to WSP’s expanding range of online expertise: “We are increasingly using web based technologies to enable our clients to access information, knowledge and take control of their environmental, sustainability and risk management issues. Natlikan’s long and successful track record in procuring, mediating and publishing online legal environmental information is a natural extension to the capability we can offer clients.”

Natlikan offers clients legal registers in the areas of environmental, health and safety and food safety. Using a web based platform the company aggregates and provides access to easily searchable compliance and legislative documents. The content is sourced from publications by the EU, individual European countries and from other countries outside of the EU. Clients access information through a range of subscription based services. In addition, Natlikan offers a web based Corporate Sustainability Reporting tool to enable companies to define and configure environmental and social responsibility goals, and measure and communicate their performance; and the business manages ‘Green Chain’, a membership based sustainable supply chain management network.

Natlikan owners and founders Magnus Agerström and Sven Ericsson will join WSP with their colleagues. Magnus comments on the opportunity: “We are delighted to join WSP which is a truly international business. It enables us to leverage an even wider client base who value the ability to access important online regulatory information that helps them make critical business decisions that affect the products they sell and the markets they operate in.”

“We are very proud of the platform we have built which draws information from international legal and environmental experts, and uses our own team of specialists to mediate the data and publish in a user-friendly manner to the benefit of busy environmental and compliance managers in leading organisations around the world” said Magnus.

In welcoming the Natlikan team to WSP, Ole Paus, WSP Environment & Energy’s Regional Managing Director for Scandinavia said:  “WSP has had a productive and mutually beneficial relationship with Natlikan in Sweden over several years and we are delighted to welcome their founders, Magnus Agerström and Sven Ericsson to WSP.”
