Deloitte acquires carbon advisory business

Big Four Firm beefs up its environmental advisory arm

Deloitte has acquired dcarbon8, the carbon and sustainability consultancy, as it looks to grow its environmental advisory division.

Guy Battle, dcarbon8’s founder, is to become a partner, with the remaining employees also joining the Big Four firm.

John Connolly, CEO and senior partner at Deloitte, said: “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.”

Battle said: “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. ”

The recent announcement is the latest in an acquisition bonanza by Deloitte. Earlier this year the firm bought property advisory specialists, Drivers Jonas, to create a new real estate advisory business; consultancy business Simulstrat which specialises in business simulations; and prior to that it acquired ReportSource, the management consultancy company.
