Deloitte expands its sustainability expertise with acquisitions of ClearCarbon and Domani

Deloitte Deloitte in the US yesterday announced that it had acquired the assets of ClearCarbon Consulting and Domani Sustainability Consulting.

ClearCarbon is a carbon and energy management consultancy that help clients understand their environmental impacts and develop strategies to reduce their carbon footprint. Domani is a sustainability strategy consulting firm providing strategic and technical solutions around energy, carbon and water, helping enterprises manage sustainability risks and capitalise on opportunities. Both companies will be integrated into Deloitte’s sustainability services, but operate on an interim basis as "ClearCarbon by Deloitte" and "Domani by Deloitte"

It’s all part of Deloitte’s move to being a leading sustainability services provider, as part of which the UK operation bought dcarbon8 back in March.  "Deloitte has identified the sustainability services market as a key growth area," said Jessica Blume, Deloitte’s national managing principal, research and innovation. "As an emerging offering, the acquisitions of ClearCarbon and Domani will further strengthen Deloitte’s ability to help clients drive value, mitigate business risk, and drive growth, efficiency and innovation through improved environmental, social and financial performance."

Deloitte’s sustainability offerings draw on the organisations primary business units and include industry-specific services across corporate strategy and operations, mergers and acquisitions, information technology, human capital, corporate tax, internal and external audit and enterprise risk management. The services address; energy supply, demand and efficiency; water and other resource scarcity; carbon and greenhouse gas management; and the general demand for increased transparency and assurance of non-financial performance.
