Business Engagement

We work with industrial and third sector partners, and have a long history of working closely with the agricultural sector.

Our research makes a real difference to your business and can help inform long-term strategic and investment decisions.

LEEP staff have worked with a long list of private and public sector partners including utility companies, local authorities and national parks.

If you feel we can help your sector or organisation contact us

Examples of where we have partnered successfully with businesses include:

  • Leading environmental consultancies such as Mott MacDonald, Eftec and Ricardo routinely use NEVO in their commercial practices as a knowledge-gathering, high-level screening and analysis tool.
  • Outdoor Recreation Valuation (ORVal) is the frequent use ‘go-to’ tool for a range of private sector businesses, including Mott MacDonald, AECOM, JBA Consulting.
  • The "Natural Capital Approach" was used to advise AECOM on the public benefits of river water quality -  this also supported a business case for waste water treatment for Yorkshire Water.
