Global professional services network HLB has launched a new sustainability practice. Led by London based Manosij Ganguli, HLB Sustain CSR has initially been rolled out in the group’s Malta wing, but will shortly be rolled out internationally.

Through the power of 29,363 professionals across 158 countries, HLB combines local expertise and global capabilities to service the needs of businesses around the world. The global network of independent advisory and accounting firms has a history of innovation, collaboration, and is dedicated to helping clients grow across borders.

The latest initiative HLB has deployed to help aid its clients to this end is the launch of a sustainability service. As global organisations recognise the importance of sustainability and the benefits for growth, HLB will help companies with their sustainability transformations through its sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) advisory wing.

HLB CEO Marco Donzelli commented, “Not only is sustainability a key business imperative, but it’s been proven to help businesses not only sustain but evolve through uncertain economic times. That is why the launch of our new sustainability and CSR advisory services could not have come at a better time. Our collaborations with our clients will be deepened by the expertise that HLB Sustain CSR provides, as we work together to create a more sustainable future for us all.”   

Having initially launched within HLB’s Malta presence, HLB Sustain CSR will soon become a global service. Playing a pivotal role in HLB’s diversification plans, HLB Sustain CSR specialises in developing and embedding sustainability strategies for organisations to gain competitive advantage and resilience through compliance, business optimisation, business growth and managed business risk. Their expertise ensures global organisations create strategic sustainability roadmaps for success, especially in these uncertain times.

The new practice is led by UK based Managing Director Manosij Ganguli, who will take on the role of Global Sustainability Leader for the network. A former Booz & Company Management Consultant, Ganguli also brings 18 years of experience from the oil and gas sector – having held senior roles with Indian Oil Corporation, Shell and BP – as well as recently spending a year as a Director with i-NoCarbon. Having arrived with HLB in October, Ganguli is based in London, and works together with other HLB global firms provides advisory services on Sustainability, CSR, carbon optimisation to clients all over the world, and across all sectors.

Commenting on his new challenge, he said, “Together with the other Directors in the senior leadership team - Vijay L Narasimhan and Eddy Quah, we are delighted to join the HLB family and we look forward to working with all the HLB firms in providing these advisory services to clients globally.”
