Built on strong foundations and a continued focus on creating opportunities for sustainable strategic growth

EMM was born in January 2010 following the merger of two Sydney-based planning and environmental consultancies, Environmental Management Group Australia (EMGA) and Mitchell McLennan. While the brand identity changed in 2012 to the shortened EMM Consulting Pty Limited (EMM), the vision, mission and values remained unchanged and still form a unique part of our identity.

Since our inception we have adopted a focus of successful, sustainable growth with expansion into new geographies achieved organically. The company’s success in establishing constructive and integrated relationships with clients has led to the broadening of technical services as clients’ needs have evolved. This has paved the way to entering into new geographies with the company now established in seven Australian office locations. In 2021 the company announced its first international expansion into Canada with offices in Vancouver and Toronto.

As an employee-owned business, our team collectively contribute to decisions that affect the future direction of the business. From doing ‘whatever it takes’ to build and establish in 2010, we have continued to evolve our organisation and focus to ensure we are proactive in pursuing opportunities which make a difference for our people and clients in a changing world.

Our ownership structure has also evolved to ensure our people thrive and are recognised for their contributions in the future of the company. As the company has evolved, our focus has always been aligned with our core values and our purpose of ‘creating opportunities’. For us growth means to grow our value, our depth of experience, our capability, and global expansion to deliver solutions that drive positive environmental, economic, and social impact.
