Anthesis Group, the global sustainability consultancy, has announced that it has acquired SecondNature.
This is the fourth sustainability consultancy that Anthesis has acquired in less than a year, taking the group to more than 100 consultants in seven countries.
Founded in 2013 by a team led by former WSP Group CFO Malcolm Paul and former Managing Director of WSP’s Environmental Consulting business Stuart McLachlan, Anthesis is capitalising on demand from governments and business for a new approach on sustainable growth, which focuses on driving revenues and cutting cost through sustainable business practices.
SecondNature’s London-based team will join Anthesis as part of the agreement.

We had an enjoyable and interesting evening at the Cavalry and Guards Club with guest speaker Michael Liebreich (Chief Executive of Bloomberg New Energy Finance) who was interviewed by Charles Perry (Founder of SecondNature). The wonderful photographs, very professionally taken by Danielle King, capture some amusement shared by both audience and speakers on the UK’s renewable energy performance compared to old rivals such as Germany. Michael confirmed that Germany has achieved grid parity (renewable energy same price as fossil fuels) with the former soon to be cheaper than the latter. Once again, we have some catching up to do.
