Plan B was established in 2006 to provide independent leadership, management, technical and financial support to the environmental service sector across the UK and beyond.  With extensive multi-disciplinary operational experience gained from innovative public sector service transformations supported by the requisite academic and technical skills, we provide support to many high profile local and regional authorities, private sector contractors and manufacturers. 


Our business is successful because we recognise that our greatest asset is the vast experience and practical industry knowledge of our Advisors. Each member of the team has spent many years at the forefront of operational service delivery, conceptualising innovative services in constantly shifting socio-political environments, translating them into winning tenders and managing the roll-out and on-going development of environmental services for an extensive list of metropolitan, suburban and rural local authorities and prestigious private sector clients.
Each of our advisors continue to work in this way both directly with local and regional authorities and indirectly in supporting the implementation of best practise  through the private sector. Our focus is in bringing the maximum benefit to the maximum number of people often at minimum cost.


The advantage of our advisors lays in their direct operational experience. Every one of our advisors has spent at least 10 years working in a direct service environment.  Coupled with extensive of theoretical learning and best practice guidance we are able to utilise our technical operational experience to provide sustainable, cost-effective solutions bespoke to different environments across all spectrums of industry support from contract procurement to DSO management.
