Acknowledgement of Country.

Niche is committed to reconciliation and acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of Country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to Elders past, present and emerging, and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.

Impact

  • 01

    People

    We are committed to leaving a positive impact for people.

    We are formalising this commitment in our Reconciliation Action Plan. We have supported our clients, communities and First Nations to evaluate and record numerous significant areas and artefacts across Australia.

  • 02

    Projects

    We work at scale and on some of the largest nation-building projects in Australia.

    With thousands of projects delivered, we empower our clients to think strategically from design to execution while ensuring they achieve the best possible outcomes for the project, people and nature.

  • 03

    Nature

    We want our work to leave a positive impact on nature.

    We’ve evaluated and protected thousands of hectares of habitat across Australia. We completed the first and the largest biodiversity stewardship site in NSW and we continue to add new conservation sites regularly.

  • 04

    Sustainability

    We empower people to create a sustainable future.

    We’ve been Carbon Neutral since 2019, sourcing our carbon credits from high-quality Australian projects that support people and biodiversity. Alongside this, we have a range of sustainability initiatives that are aimed at lowering our impact on the planet and supporting our communities.

Expertise

  • Clients seeking Niche’s advice and assistance with natural capital and offsetting may be project proponents or landholders. Many require advice on biodiversity offsetting strategy, credit acquisition or supply. Some are seeking to engage in natural capital markets or establish organisational environmental, social and governance (ESG) strategies.

    Our nature and biodiversity offset strategies ensure we are identifying and creating nature-positive projects on ground that contribute to biodiversity conservation.

  • Clients for our ecology services come from the energy generation and transition, utility and transport infrastructure, land management and resources sectors.

    We support clients across the lifecycle of a project from conceptual strategic advice to execution. Our advice covers all compliance and legislatively driven processes – feasibility, approvals, development, operations, closure and rehabilitation.

  • Niche advises clients on heritage issues affecting sites at all stages of a project lifecycle. Our team includes specialists in Aboriginal cultural heritage, historic heritage, and heritage architecture.

    We maintain strong relationships with stakeholders, negotiating complex and sensitive heritage issues to reach solutions that satisfy cultural heritage and legislative compliance requirements, while seeking outcomes that respect our heritage and benefit communities.

  • Clients who seek our environmental planning and management assistance value our ability to guide and advise throughout the lifecycle of their project.

    With our deep expertise and on-the-ground experience, we support our clients from concept development and impact assessment, through agency approval and construction, to operation, decommissioning and rehabilitation. We deliver advice that is robust and proportionate to risk and potential impact.

  • Niche’s spatial services systems – including web maps, field apps, dashboards and reports – provide our clients with increased insight throughout the project lifecycle.

    Clients who need to collect, store, distribute and understand spatial data can have reliable and connected systems, tools and reports for each stakeholder, delivering the information they need, wherever they are, at all stages of the project.
