About us

We are a team of hard working, passionate sustainability champions that take on each client’s sustainability challenge as if it were our own. Sustainability can be tough – if it were easy, then our economies and societies would already be operating sustainably. To help our clients, each of us must dig in and get to the bottom of the challenge before working out the best way forward. Every day means tackling and solving problems, crunching the numbers – working out what’s really going on. Our team is bright, focused on great analysis, high quality work, engaging presentations and recommendations that have an impact. We strive to make a difference and to influence opinions and outcome. We work with leading clients that value our input and expertise – they include Google, Lloyds of London, Domino’s Pizza Group, the UK government, the European Investment Bank, Croda, Johnson Matthey, Royal Mail and many, many others.

 

Since 2007 we have grown one of the best sustainability teams in the industry and we are still growing. We are looking for new team members who share our passion, who want to roll their sleeves up and make a difference. We want people that are prepared to grab hold of our clients’ energy, waste, reporting, supply chain, plastics, renewables, transport and social challenges, and help shape workable solutions. If you are self-motivated, like a challenge, want to make a difference, take pride in delivering high quality work, have an impact in the room, can get to grips with challenging problems and make a compelling, reasoned argument for the course of action you propose then you’ll fit in just fine. If you’re hoping everyone else will work it out – don’t apply.
