Xodus Group To Acquire Green Light Environmental
International energy consultancy Xodus Group announced an agreement to acquire Perth-based Green Light Environmental.
As part of the company’s plans to expand its Asia Pacific operations, Xodus’ new integrated environmental capability in Perth will be led by Petrina Raitt, who was the managing director of Green Light Environmental. She also founded eBase, a cloud-based environmental impact assessment (EIA) platform that aims to support more efficient, consistent, and thorough EIA and project approvals.
Xodus will continue to utilize and develop eBase through its technology team who already support two environmental-based software packages—EmTRAX (emissions tracking) and RegTRAX (drilling environment and health and safety register).
Raitt, who will take on the new role of environment manager–APAC at Xodus, said, “As well as the traditional markets, we know there are opportunities in new energy such as offshore wind and hydrogen which are developing in Australia—and environment will play a key role in these types of projects.”
In February, Xodus announced it had grown its team in Perth by almost 50% after a batch of new contract wins in the region over the past 12 months. The APAC office also saw its revenue increase by more than half.
