Quinn & Partners Ranked as one of Canada’s Top Growing Companies

Quinn & Partners is delighted to announce that we have made the Report on Business 2021 list of Canada’s Top Growing Companies. Released today by The Globe and Mail, the list ranks qualifying Canadian companies by their revenue growth over three years.

“When we started Quinn & Partners in 2013, we never imagined growth on this scale—and that certainly wasn’t our goal,” says president and founder Francisca Quinn.

“Our aim was to help companies and investors improve their businesses and to provide smart, motivated people with opportunities to do interesting and important work,” Quinn said.

Quinn thanked the firm’s clients which include well-known TSX and NYSE listed and Fortune500 Canadian and US corporations, as well as many of the largest North American pension plans and asset managers.

“Our clients trust us and inspire us to find new and innovative ways to make sustainability a priority. Today, sustainability, or ESG, is a board room issue. Our success reflects the incredible work we do together to create impact and shift markets to a low carbon economy,” Quinn said.

Quinn also praised the Quinn & Partners team. Having grown from two founding partners (Francisca Quinn and Tony Pringle) to twenty five full-time employees, the firm is now one of the largest and most influential ESG advisors in Canada.

“We thank the entire Quinn & Partners team for your passion, your drive and your unwavering commitment to excellence.”

“This recognition proves that great workplaces are not only successful, but, more importantly, personally fulfilling,” said Quinn.

Quinn & Partners’ founders Tony Pringle & Francisca Quinn recognized by the Clean50

Canada’s Clean50 Awards are announced annually by Delta Management Group and the Clean50 organization to recognize those 50 individuals or small teams, from 16 different categories, who have done the most to advance the cause of sustainability and clean capitalism in Canada over the past 2 years. Tony and Francisca were chosen after rigorous screening and research by Delta Management, with advice from internal researchers and external advisors, and were among Honourees selected from an initial pool of approximately 600 well qualified nominees.

The selection team, lead by Delta Management Group CEO Gavin Pitchford, justified the nomination of Tony and Francisca as 2018 Clean50 Honourees in the Consultants category with the following motivation:

“In 2016, Quinn & Partners, led by Francisca Quinn and Tony Pringle, helped organizations with a total of $155 billion in assets under management to integrate sustainability into their core business operations. The team worked with companies and investors to both improve and publicly disclose their performance and practices. This included supporting Canada’s largest real estate owners in reporting to the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark initiative – constituting 10% of the North American survey participant pool –  and helping clients such as Healthcare of Ontario Pension Plan (HOOPP), The Cadillac Fairview Corporation, and Global Container Terminals win prestigious industry awards for their sustainability achievements.”

Clean50 support for Canadian leadership at Paris climate talks

The COP21 Conference begins in Paris in just 6 days. It is expected to attract close to 50,000 participants including 25,000 official delegates from governments, UN agencies, NGOs and civil society. Over 11 days, countries that want action on climate change will convene to discuss the issues we face, the solutions we need and the timeline we need to act within.

In advance of COP21, a group of recognized Canadian sustainability leaders, the Clean50, has drafted an open letter to our political leaders attending the conference, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Minister of Environment and Climate Change Catherine McKenna and our Premiers. The message, penned at the Clean50 Summit this past September, sends a clear message to Canada’s COP21 delegation that encourages them to take significant steps to raise Canada’s commitment to fighting climate change, and then work together to create an action plan to meet those targets.

  • Please act now: Set appropriate national targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Canada can again be a leader.
  • Create a national sustainable development plan. Put in place strong policies that ensure we meet those targets, including a price on pollution, and incentives that accelerate adoption of cleaner choices.

Francisca Quinn, Founder of Quinn & Partners, is a Clean50 honouree that has endorsed this important message to Canada’s COP21 delegation. We also congratulate our clients Lisa Lafave at Healthcare of Ontario Pension Plan and Philippe Bernier of Triovest Realty Advisors, as well as our strategic partners Coro Strandberg and Lisa DeMarco, in supporting this message.

You can read the full letter here and find it in a special section of the November 24 Globe and Mail newspaper.
