Anthesis Group has acquired environmental and sustainability consulting firm Mosaic Sustainability, its eighth acquisition and first acquisition in the US since its formation in September 2013.
Mosaic Sustainability, a business formerly owned by Renewable Choice Energy, based in Boulder Colorado, works globally with the most innovative companies in the world to advance sustainable business initiatives, understand and reduce environmental impact and improve environmental and social performance.
Mosaic Sustainability provides a range of core services including data visualization and analytics, strategy development and implementation, reporting and disclosure (including CDP reporting, GHG inventory and carbon accounting) and supply chain management to global clients including Kroger, Prologis, Monterey Bay Aquarium and Franklin Templeton.
Anthesis Group’s rapid growth has been achieved through a balanced combination of organic growth and acquisitions. Its first acquisition in the US demonstrates the Group’s continued commitment to become the leading global sustainability services and solutions provider.
Stuart McLachlan, CEO of Anthesis Group said: “Having established a global platform we are focused on strengthening our position in key markets. North America is a primary
focus for us. It is a progressive market locally and a market that gives us access to global clients that we can support around the world. We are excited to welcome the Mosaic team who have built such a strong reputation with so many corporate clients, and who share our passion for making our clients more profitable and more sustainable.”
Chris Jones, President, Anthesis Group USA said: “We are delighted to welcome such a talented and aligned group of individuals to our business. The addition of the Mosaic team further enhances our US capabilities and moves us another step forward in our journey to become the world’s leading sustainability specialist.”
Matt Wood, former Managing Director of Mosaic Sustainability said: “This partnership is a big win for our clients. We are excited to join a team that has experts spanning all facets of sustainability around the world.”
Quayle Hodek, CEO of Renewable Choice Energy said “We are pleased to find such a strong partner for Mosaic Sustainability in the Anthesis Group. The work being done by the team at Mosaic is cutting-edge and joining Anthesis will allow that work to expand even further. We wish the Mosaic and Anthesis teams every success and look forward to deepening our newly forged relationship.”
Anthesis aims to occupy the space between the large players where sustainability is non-core and the small local specialist firms. Anthesis believes that clients prefer to buy from specialist firms where those firms have the critical mass to offer technical depth with the specialist expertise required to deliver valued outcomes.
Mosaic Sustainability will initially trade as Anthesis Mosaic, as the Group continues its commitment to rebrand all acquired entities under a single name. Matt Wood will continue in his role as Managing Director of Anthesis Mosaic and will join the Anthesis senior US management team.
