Global sustainability consultancy swoops for York business

ERM, a major global sustainability consultancy, has acquired Arcus Consultancy Services, a York-based renewable energy consultancy focused on environmental, planning and engineering support.

Founded in 2006 by Greg Shillabeer, Arcus is a multidisciplinary consultancy specialising in high profile renewable energy projects.

It supports clients throughout the entire project lifecycle; from initial site search through to completion, and projects include some of the most significant renewable energy schemes in Europe and Africa.

“The acquisition of Arcus by ERM will help us meet the increased investment and demand across the region, by continuing to bolster our capabilities in this area alongside other acquisitions which have strengthened our LCET capabilities, including M.J. Bradley & Associates and Critical Resource,” said ERM CEO Keryn James.

“ Combined with ERM’s global implementation capability and access to our 5000+ subject matter experts, Arcus will enable us to provide an even greater level of service to our clients as they determine how they can address their low carbon and net zero challenges.”

Mr Shillabeer, founder and CEO of Arcus, added “We have created a fantastic business in Arcus over the past 14 years and are keen to further develop and diversify geographically, in different market sectors and with new clients.

“By joining a market leader like ERM, with such a strong global platform and market presence, these aspirations will be immediately possible, whilst ensuring our clients continue to have access to the very best technical expertise.

“We also aspire to help organisations who are yet to fully realize the potential renewables can bring to their businesses, and have ambitious plans to achieve this through our union with ERM, ultimately contributing toward the global transition to a lower carbon economy.”
