Andrew Baker Featured on The ENDS Report Power List 2024

We’re incredibly pleased to share that Baker Consultants’ Managing Director, Andrew Baker, has been featured on this year’s prestigious ENDS Report Power List.

Andrew is amongst a select group of professionals to be recognised as one of the most influential environmental consultants in The ENDS Power List 2024. This marks the third year that The ENDS Report have named 100 UK environmental professionals who have made a significant impact over the past two years, as nominated by their peers, clients and competitors.

To earn a spot on the list, an individual must excel in one or more of the following areas: shaping or influencing national or local environmental policy, enhancing the reputation of the environmental profession, delivering work that results in demonstrable and positive environmental improvements, or being an unsung hero effecting positive change without the recognition they deserve.

Andrew began his career over 30 years ago as a field botanist. Since then, he has become an esteemed Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (CIEEM), and a widely acknowledged expert in the application of nature conservation law.

Highlighting the reasons for Andrew’s selection for the Power List, The ENDS Report cited a nominator who praised his profound “understanding of natural environmental law twinned with his expertise in ecology makes him a leader in his field and places him as one of the most respected ecological consultants in the industry”. The citation also mentions that he has ‘pioneered new techniques to further the science of ecological monitoring’.

On being featured, Andrew said “This came as a complete surprise to me, I had no idea I had been nominated. I’ve been passionate about the correct application of nature conservation law for decades. I’ve also worked very hard to ensure that decisions are made based on the best scientific evidence possible. It is such a great time to be working in ecology with new technology and science opening up so many exciting avenues. It is really humbling to be recognised in such a public way.”

Andrew’s recognition on the ENDS Report Power List underscores his exceptional contributions to the field and his unwavering commitment to advancing environmental consultancy and the ecological field.
