Gallagher Group Named Thames Estuary Visionary

We’re delighted to announce that Gallagher Group has been named a Thames Estuary Visionary – one of a small group of businesses selected to be a partner in the Thames Estuary development project. We’ve been chosen for this accolade, which is open to businesses based in east London, north Kent and south Essex, on the basis of our strong sustainability credentials and values. 

The Thames Estuary project aims to unlock the Thames Estuary’s potential and generate good, ‘green’ growth for the local area and the national economy. Under its ‘The Green Blue’ development plan, it’s backing a range of initiatives, including using the river for freight and passenger transport, pioneering decarbonisation technologies and making green spaces accessible to boost tourism.

The Thames Estuary Visionary programme is designed to bring together the right people with the right skills, motivation and connections to push the project forward. We’re one of just nine companies who’ve made the grade so far: others include London City Airport and Ground Control, the UK’s largest privately-owned provider of landscaping and maintenance services.  

This is one of the most dynamic, ambitious and forward-looking development projects in the south-east of England, and should provide great opportunities for us in the future. You can read more about it, and view our new profile page, here.
