03 June 2015

Sustainability consultancy Steward Redqueen has signed an alliance with RepRisk, a specialised data provider on environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks. With the partnership, RepRisk will add the Dutch language to its comprehensive research process – thereby bringing its coverage to a total of 15 languages.

Steward Redqueen is a specialised consulting firm that focuses on ESG, sustainability and socio-economic related engagements. The firm consists of a team of 16 advisors and is based in Haarlem, the Netherlands, although it operates globally, among others through satellite offices in Barcelona (Spain) and New York (USA) and its ‘SRQ Associates Network’.

Founded in 2006 in Zurich, Switzerland, RepRisk is one of the most comprehensive ESG risk databases of the globe, with risk profiles for over 50,000 public and private companies and 12,000 projects as well as for every sector and country in the world – and is updated and growing daily. RepRisk serves clients worldwide including global banks, insurance companies, investment managers, and corporates, helping them to manage and mitigate ESG and reputational risks in day-to-day business.

To date the RepRisk database was available in 14 languages, and on the back of the firm’s expansion strategy, it has now signed an alliance with Steward Redqueen, enabling it to enter and serve the Dutch market. With the support of Steward Redqueen, the Dutch language has now been added to RepRisk’s research process, bringing its language offering to a total of fifteen. “Broad language coverage is important to RepRisk because our experience shows that risks appear at the local level, in local languages, first,” comments Nicole Streuli-Fuerst, Head of Operations and Research at RepRisk. “We are excited to add the Dutch language to our research coverage”.

Wouter Scheepens, Partner at Steward Redqueen, says, “We are very pleased to be working with RepRisk, as we are like-minded organisations that offer complementary ESG propositions. In view of the growth of international ESG markets we trust that this partnership has the potential to generate additional synergies.”

Grey Consulting and Makerversity announce strategic partnership

05 April 2019

Grey Consulting has forged a new alliance with Makerversity, a 500-strong community of the brightest creative innovators, headquartered at Somerset House, London. The partnership hopes to tap into the experimental community to develop pioneering solutions for Grey Consulting’s clients.

In August 2018, one of the world’s largest design agencies surprised the business world by launching a dedicated consulting outfit. The news came as the two industries continued on their trajectory towards a historic synthesis. The consulting industry has been engaged in a pitched battle with the advertising and design space for the past few years, as the former increasingly encroaches on the territory of the latter via a protracted campaign of mergers and acquisitions; but there had been little traffic moving in the other direction.

At its launch, Grey Consulting was not billed as a direct competitor to established consultancies. However, the firm behind the new entity hopes that its creative experience will give it a competitive edge in winning consulting business from its existing clients. The Grey Group is a global advertising and marketing agency with headquarters in New York City, and 432 offices in 96 countries, operating in 154 cities. Grey Consulting opened its doors with a view to aiding clients within the areas of business and brand design, innovation and digital transformations.Grey Consulting and Makerversity announce strategic partnership

Now, as the firm looks to further expand its footprint in the market, Grey Consulting has unveiled details of a ground-breaking new alliance with Makerversity, a 500-strong community of creative innovators headquartered at Somerset House, London. The alignment with Makerversity is hoped to unlock the potential of collaborating with one of the world’s most experimental communities.

Makerversity curates and convenes the best talent across product design, fashion, art and experimental architecture, sustainable materials, IoT, digital manufacturing, and coding. It provides spaces and workshops for professional makers to develop and create their work, supported by Somerset House Trust. The alliance is expected to enable Grey Consulting to develop pioneering solutions for its clients, together with innovators who make something amazing for a living, every day. 

Leo Rayman, Grey Consulting CEO, commented, “This gives our clients the potential to access a network of some of the most diverse and innovative individuals in the world today. Being so tightly connected to a community of makers means we don’t just develop transformational strategies but can quickly realise them in three dimensions. This sets Grey Consulting apart from the pure play strategy houses who are sometimes criticised for not making their thinking real at the pace modern businesses require.” 

Fiona Dent, CEO of Makerversity, added, “Makerversity acts as a catalyst for unexpected encounters, fostering collaborations between an incredible range of the brightest leading creators and innovators. Our experimental approach and engaged members, whose own practice is defining our world, create highly original new outcomes. We are delighted to bring this philosophy to a wider audience and generate interesting projects for Makerversity members through our partnership with Grey Consulting.”
