London-based Collingwood Environmental Planning (CEP) has been appointed to support the European Environment Agency (EEA) in developing a report investigating the environment and quality of life in Europe.
CEP’s contribution to the report will focus on environmental health across Europe, environmental risks to health and the environmental benefits to health and well-being. The firm is set to be assisted by public health consultancy Ben Cave Associates.
The project will support the publication of an EEA report planned for 2019 examining the links between the environment and quality of life in member countries. The report will explore how quality of life in Europe is influenced by the impact that environmental quality has on health and well-being. It will also review how social vulnerability can result in increased exposure and sensitivity to pollution, and reduced resilience to environmental risks.
The project was awarded under a four-year supplier framework contract on which CEP won a place last year. The framework requires CEP to provide sustainability expertise to the EEA as part of its 2020 review into the state of the European environment (EA 08-Jun-17). The appointment - which came after the Brexit vote - demonstrates there are still good opportunities for UK firms looking to operate at the heart of Europe.
CEP has offices in London, Bristol and Glasgow.
