Grant Thornton launches EES team

Grant Thornton UK has launched a combined energy, environment and sustainability (EES) sector team.

A team of 30 staff will work across the firm offering specialist tax, assurance and advisory services across the EES sector.

The firm plans to double the number of staff in the EES team with a view to generating revenues of £15m ($24m) in the next three years.

Grant Thornton said it had brought together existing EES service offerings due to the firm’s growth in the renewable sector, which will also allow it to make an effective contribution to the low carbon sector, expected to be worth £200bn by 2030.

“Energy and the environment are at the top of the agenda not only for UK government and businesses but on an international scale. This agenda change is beginning to have a major impact on how companies and their supply chains do business, Grant Thornton EES head Nathan Goode said.

“The key aim of the new EES sector is to support dynamic organisations in the private, public and third sectors as they seek to secure growth and commercial opportunities in the renewable sector. Using a combination of strategic and transactional capabilities as well as taking advantage of our public policy insight we are able to respond creatively to the compliance challenges posed by the issues companies face.”

Grant Thornton's EES sector team will launch a new report called Sustainable Cities on 31 May, examining key challenges for UK cities in delivering effective long term sustainability strategies. It will also make recommendations for reinforcing sustainable businesses and local councils with a view to facilitating a collective boost to the UK's sustainability credentials.
