All Olive’s traditional skills, such as ISO standard Environmental and Quality Management Systems, resource and waste management, sustainable procurement, legal compliance, internal auditing, sustainable property management and our many professionally certified and bespoke training courses will be integrated into GEP Environmental.

This is what our clients say about us

“Olive has provided ‘gold star’ support in establishing accreditation to ISO14001. The mentoring sessions were extremely hands on and productive. Support away from site with the development of necessary documents and registers was first class. I was able to call or email at any time and always received a prompt response. Training was of a very high standard and the project was completed on time and under budget. It has been a joy to work with a consultancy that ensured the programme was well structured and always on target which resulted in a successful and smooth accreditation process.”
Compliance Manager, Williams Shipping Holdings Ltd
“Highly professional, adaptable, client focused and reliable.”
Head of Facilities, National Oceanography Centre
