This report provides a detailed, fact-based benchmark of 17 of the most prominent ESG and sustainability consulting providers in the market. Based on the proprietary Verdantix Green Quadrant methodology, our analysis entailed two-hour live briefings, client interviews and consulting firm responses to a detailed 72-point questionnaire, covering five demonstrated capability and six momentum categories. Verdantix analysis finds that the ESG and sustainability consulting market has grown substantially, in terms of customer demand and the number of consulting firms in the market, over the last two years. This is due to many factors: regulatory movement; the evolving priorities of customers, employees, and investors; closer board scrutiny of ESG performance; competitive pressure; and an increasing risk of litigation and reputational damage. Among the providers featured in the Leaders’ Quadrant, four firms – BCG, ERM, EY and PwC – demonstrated the most comprehensive ESG and sustainability consulting capabilities.
