The responsibilities of the private consulting environmental analyst are complex and may involve the public, the client, the consulting firm, regulatory agencies, and personal professional interests. These relationships may be conflicting but need not be mutually exclusive.

Environmental analysts must work through professional societies to promote their professional status and clearly define professional and moral responsibilities.
