AMEC voted International Environmental Adviser of the Year

30 April 2009

London, United Kingdom (30 April 2009) – AMEC, the international engineering and project management company, announced today that its environmental consultancy business has been voted ‘International Environmental Adviser of the Year’ in the prestigious ACQ Global Awards 2009. ACQ is a leading specialist publication reporting on international mergers and acquisitions (M&A) activity.
The award reflects the consistently high quality of consultancy service offered by AMEC’s environmental business to the international M&A sector, particularly across the industrial, energy, power and mining industries.

It also reflects AMEC’s high profile in these sectors, as the awards are voted for by a wide cross section of organisations and advisers, from international energy and mining companies through to legal, financial and other specialist advisers.

AMEC’s environmental business has been increasing its profile to the M&A advisory and financing world where it regularly provides thought leadership on major issue areas. Recent opinion pieces provided by the company have included an analysis of the global mining sector, the pitfalls and opportunities of cross-border transactions, and the increasing opportunities for clean energy and carbon management.

“This award is recognition by the M&A market that AMEC people deliver a best in class service, are geographically well spread to provide the local knowledge vital to a successful transaction and consistently meet client needs in a rapidly evolving technical, environmental and social context,” explains Elaine Moore, Executive Vice President of AMEC’s European environmental business.

“We provide a highly specialised and integrated service to clients by combining our environmental and social consulting expertise with the wider AMEC’s proven engineering expertise.

“For example, one of our recent projects involved advising on the proposed acquisition of a mining-related company in Brazil by a London-based private equity house which resulted in a reverse take-over. We provided due diligence on all technical aspects such as sub-surface ore evaluation, above-ground asset operability and maintenance, future closure, in addition to the issues of environmental, health and safety.”
