Net zero authority Climate Neutral Group (CNG) has merged with Anthesis, a group of sustainability professionals, to increase efforts to reach net zero and achieve the aims of the Paris Agreement.
CNG has helped more than 3,000 businesses track its carbon footprint and work around offsetting since 2002 and has offices in the Netherlands, Belgium and South Africa.
Anthesis will join the Group in providing net zero and sustainability advice and services.
Since its inception, CNG claims to have offset more than 12 million tonnes of carbon emissions through its projects and will now look to help Anthesis in achieving its aim of removing three gigatonnes of carbon emissions from its clientele by 2030.
CNG Managing Director René Toet commented: “We’re proud to be joining Anthesis, a great team of dedicated sustainability professionals who share our mission to fight climate change as well as our values and commitment to the B Corp way of working.
“By joining Anthesis not only do we gain access to a global platform to present our Climate Neutral certification, project development and offsetting initiatives but our clients benefit from the global Anthesis network and access to its industry leading experts.”
Anthesis CEO Stuart McLachlan added: “With Climate Neutral Group joining Anthesis, we can support our clients more comprehensively along their net zero journey by building on emissions avoidance and reduction efforts to applying climate finance for mitigation.”
