ParenteBeard launches sustainability practice

ParenteBeard, a US member of Baker Tilly International, has launched a sustainability practice.

ParenteBeard said the practice will work with client’s healthcare providers, corporate and educational institutions to establish sustainability initiatives. This includes creating sustainability strategies, assuring the credibility and transparency of sustainability measures in place, and creating sustainability and CSR reports.

The team will focus on operational and environmental assessments, the triple bottom line assessment (known as people, planet and profit), and establishing the KPIs.

Cynthia Wollman has been appointed to head up the practice. She joins ParenteBeard from printing company CRW Graphics, where she served as vice president of new business development. In her previous role, Wollman was involved in aligning CRW Graphics’ sustainability efforts with corporate strategy. 

ParenteBeard chief executive Bob Ciaruffoli explained the launch of the sustainability practice is part of the firms “strategic growth plan”.

“As the sustainability practice develops what we expect to be a stellar reputation in the business community, Wollman will be a strong asset to the ParenteBeard team, as she supports our firm’s values and principles and has the in-depth experience to lead this important service for our clients,” he said.

Wollman added: “Clients are interested in improving the value they offer customers and increasing revenue and profit through sustainability. Our practice will advance the message that long-term sustainability is driven by corporate responsibility.”
