About The ESSP

The ESSP is a partnership of six UK public sector bodies. Our collective purpose is to develop ways to translate and apply the world-leading environmental science we each generate, to support the delivery and improvement of services.

By combining our data, information and expertise, we can help with the design and delivery of products and services for society, private enterprise and government. These will support decision-making and stimulate economic growth while ensuring the best possible outcomes for the environment.
