environment, social, governance, resilience and corporate sustainability

Our Team

ESG Consulting matches people with the required expertise and experience to each project and assignment. And while the so-called ‘gig economy’ gets mixed press, we have turned this business model into a virtue. The benefit for our clients is that they don’t pay for bricks and mortar infrastructure that they don’t need, while they do have access to top environment, social, governance, and sustainability talent, but don’t pay for a service – and the people who deliver it - until they need it. 

We have also forged relationships with experienced and talented professionals, academics and other consultancy companies around the world. These relationships bring quality-assured, complementary capability in areas where ESG Consulting clients have the need for input, whether within or outside the scope of an ESG Consulting project. 

 The steam engine wasn’t originally intended to power locomotives, generate power or run mills; it was first invented to manage an environmental issue affecting the mining industry. Man’s ingenuity adapted and applied the technology of coal-fired steam engines to many applications, with the consequence that industry generated huge wealth and became highly efficient at producing CO2. And now, to counter the effects of climate change and to build resilience and sustainability into the power generation mix, we’re is harnessing the power of the sun, wind and water to make electricity in a way that respects the wider environment.
