anthesis-logoAnthesis Group has acquired environmental and sustainability consulting firm The Environment Partnership (TEP), its seventh acquisition in 18 months and second overseas. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.

TEPTEP, based in the United Arab Emirates, is working across the Middle East and India in Environmental and Social Impact Assessments, Waste and Hazardous Materials Management, Environmental, Health and Safety Auditing.

TEP works for many of the large property development, energy, public and corporate clients in the region. These include Daewoo, Sheraton, HSBC, Aurecon and Aedas.

Stuart McLachlan, CEO of Anthesis Group said: “The Middle East is an important region for us and was becoming a missing component in our corporate presence. We see an emerging need for our specialist skills where resource efficiency and environmental and social awareness are recognised as both risks and opportunities. We have secured an increasing amount of work in support of clients at a city level, with sustainable master planning; at a site and company level with EHS, carbon, water and waste management, and in support of capital projects with environmental and social impact assessments. To meet our strategic aims we need to have our own staff on the ground in strong local markets and in support of our global clients in their operations and their supply chains. TEP brings a strong team, quality client relationships and pipeline, and many years of experience working in the region.”

Enda Colfer, previously Managing Director and Owner of TEP  joins the Anthesis Global Management Team. TEP will trade as Anthesis TEP in the Middle East.
