This employee-owned consultancy assists customers — which include Tesco, The North Face and Target — with all aspects of sustainability, from making supply chains more environment friendly to preparing sustainability reports. Chief executive Stuart McLachlan, 51, and the founding management team formed the London-based group in 2013. It has since made acquisitions in Germany, Sweden, North America and the United Arab Emirates, as well as opening offices in China and the Philippines. Sales grew to £13.8m last year, aided by a strengthened presence in the energy sector as a result of acquiring the Bristol energy and carbon management firm Sustain in November 2016.
