Energy consultancy NIFES has announced a partnership with CDP - the international organisation which provides a global system for companies to measure, manage and share environmental information.
As part of the deal, NIFES - which specialises in energy-efficiency, engineering and property appraisal as well as asset management - has become a consultancy partner, helping companies to report their greenhouse gas emissions and climate change strategies.
By requesting information on behalf of 722 institutional investors with $87tn in assets – half the world’s invested capital – CDP helps investors, companies and governments to minimise risk.
It also helps identify the cost savings and financial opportunities created by measuring, managing and reducing impacts on the environment and natural resources.
As a result of the deal, NIFES, which is part of the Inenco Group, will now use its expertise to help companies and organisations report to CDP, a not-for-profit organisation.
As part of the process of becoming a partner, NIFES submitted testimonials and recommendations about its expertise from several of its major clients including B&Q owner Kingfisher, Talk Talk and Stagecoach.
NIFES managing director Anthony Mayall added: “This partnership, with such a high-profile organisation, will play a turn-key role in our continuing growth and development as a company and underpins our firm commitment to being at the cutting edge of our sector.
“It also helps to increase our global credibility for the work we undertake as well as endorsing our experience and expertise as an energy consultancy practice.”
