“There is a growing recognition that what the world does in the next ten years will determine the quality of life for the next 1000 years.”
Stuart McLachlan, CEO

Anthesis have been awarded this prestigious accolade due to achieving a high percentage growth in revenues between 2016 and 2019, where this league table ranked companies Europe-wide a few weeks before COVID-19 took hold. Anthesis is placed in 773rd position and is one of a select and unique group of only 28 companies to have ranked for four consecutive years.

Reflecting the phenomenal company growth as it continues to achieve annual double-digit growth since inception in 2013, Anthesis has further ambitions to help its clients eliminate 3 gigatonnes of CO2e by 2030 and to accelerate its impact globally. Continually responding to international market demands for sustainability, Anthesis now has the largest group of dedicated sustainability experts globally with a team of over 600 consultants helping to drive sustainable impact for clients. Following The Sunday Times Fast Track 100 and The Sunday Times International 200, the FT1000 is the third league table to rank Anthesis based on fast-paced growth in the last few months.

Commenting on the news, Stuart McLachlan, Anthesis Group CEO said, “There is a growing recognition that what the world does in the next ten years will determine the quality of life for the next 1000 years. Anthesis is focused on moving the dial during the decisive decade, constantly looking at how we can scale our impact by navigating our clients on their sustainability journey. We’d like to congratulate all Anthesians for their continued hard work and dedication to the global crisis. This accolade is certainly a testament to it. It is encouraging to see that a business that balances profit and purpose can be one of the fastest growing businesses in Europe.”
