APEM began life as a small consultancy in 1987. With exponential growth over the past three decades, the APEM Group are now a global environmental consultancy, providing a comprehensive range of integrated specialist services to clients across Europe, the US, Australia, and Asia. We have offices throughout the UK, Ireland and the United States.

In 2021 we acquired Woodrow, an environmental and sustainability consultancy based in County Sligo. 2022 saw two more acquisitions: Galway-based AQUAFACT, an environmental consultancy specialising in monitoring and managing resources in marine, freshwater and terrestrial environments and GoBe, market-leading planning and environmental consultants, who are based in Devon and Edinburgh. In 2023 the APEM Group were joined by Macro Works, specialist LVIA consultants based in Dublin.
