Quinn+Partners Recognized by Verdantix for ESG and Sustainability Strategy Services

Quinn+Partners has been listed among the top 11 organizations in Verdantix’s 2023 Buyer’s Guide: Boutique ESG and Sustainability Strategy Services.

It aims to guide Board, C-Suite and sustainability executives in selecting a partner for advancing their ESG and sustainability programs as 67% of them consider industry-specific expertise among the top selection criteria. 

“Over the past decade, our team has amassed a wealth of experience helping our clients identify and make progress towards ambitious sustainability goals,” says Emily Partington, Strategy and Reporting Practice Lead at Quinn+Partners. “We are honoured to see our ESG and sustainability strategy expertise recognized among the top advisors globally.”
