An environmental consultant is someone who works on a contractual basis for private and public sector clients, addressing environmental issues such as water pollution, air quality, and soil contamination.
An environmental consultant conducts both field and desk-based research, and will hand over completed and detailed scientific reports, written in a manner that can be understood by non-technical people. Their research will identify whether water, air, or land contamination will have an adverse impact on people or groundwater, for example. They will interpret data, which includes a detailed assessment of the data, sometimes using software-modeling packages to see whether contamination exists in accordance with current legislation.
Australians like to live life to the full which is perhaps why Australia has the highest per capita carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions among "major western nations", 10th highest overall, and is the 16th highest total emitter of any country. Yet demand for electricity is growing and CO2 emissions are starting to increase. With forcasted 3% growth for 2017.
In recent years the implementation of efficiency measures have masked the 10% growth in population since 2006, and the demand that that increase would have created. However, falling energy prices and a "saturation" of demand side management with energy efficient devices has meant that future growth in population will now have impacts of emissions namely they will rise.

The services we offer can be broken down in to two main areas the provision of information or creation of a physical system. We write reports on just about any subject within the context of the environment. Which Einstein once defined as "everything that isn't me" so its a pretty broad subject area.
Provision of information is normally in the form of a report or web resource, which presents finding from studies, assessments or testing. We can also design and build environmental abatement systems to our client specific requirements.
Southwest Environmental provide Environmental Consultancy Services in the discipline of Environmental Impact Assessment. The first step in impact assessment is typically a desktop study followed by a baseline field study if required the baseline field study is required so as to form an opinion of the areas environmental quality prior to the project being established once a baseline has been established it is impossible to gauge the impact of the proposed structure or development.
There are a number of different elements for which we can provide Environmental Consultancy Services, sometimes called specialist studies which which can form part of an environmental impact assessment these include elements such as visual impact noise impact and over impact all of which can then be summarized in an environmental statement which ordinarily will contain an executive summary which presents the findings of the individual elements and the environmental statement within a few pages of text.
Southwest Environmental can offer all elements of Impact Assessment including Visual Impact and Odour Impact Consultancy Services across Australia.

Sitting in an office environment, it is hard to visualise how our activities are impacting on the environment. Issues, such as air pollution, global climate change, deforestation, landfills, water availability, biodiversity, chemical pollution, eutrophication and soil erosion, seem very distant and unrelated to the activities we undertake at work.
Our main impacts as a primarily office based activity are travel and use of computers. Of course to run a human body also creates impacts, but as a company what our employees eat and drive is beyond our control. Our reports are printed on post consumer waste, unbleached paper (when they have to be printed). Our electricity is sourced from a premium renewable energy tariff.
