Employment prospects for environmental consultants are expected to be good in the near future. IBISWorld predicts that revenue in the environmental consulting industry will grow by 16 percent annually from 2011 to 2016. The proliferation of newer and more stringent environmental regulations is causing more companies to seek help from environmental consultants, so the employment outlook is bright. Environmental consultants will be in demand by many industries, but especially by the renewable energy, construction, natural gas and other fossil fuel, and waste management industries. Job opportunities will be best for consultants with knowledge of energy efficiency and carbon emissions.
