Deloitte acquires carbon and sustainability consultancy dcarbon8

Deloitte, the business advisory firm, has acquired dcarbon8, a carbon and sustainability consultancy, to help the firm evolve its environmental and sustainability consulting practice.

Guy Battle, a founder of dcarbon8, is joining Deloitte as a partner.

dcarbon8, a ‘grand prix’ award winner at the 2008 Green Business Awards, is at the forefront of carbon management services especially focussing on embodied carbon within products and complex supply chains. This includes the capacity to deliver Carbon Trust and Planet Positive certification of products, businesses and buildings. dcarbon8 also increasingly specialises in developing corporate sustainability and communications strategies to meet the challenges laid out by the UK Government for the low carbon economy.

John Connolly, CEO and senior partner at Deloitte, commented: “dcarbon8 is a leading innovator in carbon and sustainability consulting and already advises a number of blue chip clients. We are delighted to welcome its team to Deloitte, where their expertise in carbon footprint, water and sustainability advisory services will complement and enhance our existing credentials as we seek to establish leadership in this field.

“This deal will bring together pioneering and highly skilled people from both organisations enabling us to offer an increased range and depth of carbon and sustainability advice to a broader number of clients.”

Guy Battle, founder and director of dcarbon8, commented: “The challenges facing business as the world moves towards a low carbon economy are enormous. We see the move to Deloitte as a fantastic opportunity to combine our respective skills adding the necessary depth and resource to allow us to meet the growing demands of our customers in this field.
