Anthesis Group is a young, fast-growing sustainability consultancy that is uniquely positioned to support private equity funds and their portfolio companies with their Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) challenges and opportunities.
Initially formed by the acquisition and integration of a number of boutique consultancies, well-known for their expertise in supporting clients with specific business challenges such as energy management, waste minimisation, chemicals regulation and supply chain management, we have subsequently assembled a highly experienced transactions team with practitioners from some of the world’s largest environmental consultancy firms.
We have offices in key cities around the world and a wider network allowing us to evaluate global businesses.
Anthesis assist clients during transactions with both early phase scoping and full due diligence, by helping funds to develop their ESG policies, systems and reporting mechanisms, and during ownership by working with portfolio companies to determine Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and set and deliver related improvement targets.

Transactional Due Diligence
Central to the Anthesis approach is recognizing that as well as the traditional risks around “end of pipe” compliance, contamination and other legacy issues, clients increasingly need to understand the ESG risks and opportunities associated with a business’ practices, products and supply chains. We deliver our advice by leveraging the combination of our experienced transactional leads, who understand the process, pace and language of transactions, our subject specialists and our global platform.
Embracing the use of software enabled consulting services with value add tools, such as RiskHorizon™, ensures a greater range of data is evaluated at a much faster pace than the market can currently offer. Our services include:
- Early phase ESG screening
- EHS Due Diligence
- Commercial Waste and Energy Due Diligence Consulting
- Post-acquisition Planning
RiskHorizon™ is Anthesis’ proprietary tool and has been created to help decision makers understand risks and possible future scenarios better. It is a ground-breaking, cost-effective, web-based tool spanning millions of data points from more than 40 countries, covering 25 global risks (economic, environmental, technical, social and geo-political).
