Maitland/AMO launches new integrated sustainability practice
(London): Maitland/AMO, one of Europe’s leading financial, corporate and political communications consultancies, is pleased to launch a new integrated sustainability practice, Maitland/AMO Sustain. The practice will help organisations tackle some of the biggest environmental, social and governance issues of our time, including financing the decarbonisation of the global economy, mitigating climate change and addressing social inequalities.
For nearly a decade Maitland/AMO has been advising businesses, policymakers and non-profit organisations on environmental issues under the brand of Maitland/AMO Green. However, in response to growing client demand, and in recognition of the evolving sustainability landscape, Maitland/AMO Sustain has expanded its offering to provide clients with a full spectrum of integrated communications and strategic advice.
Maitland/AMO Sustain, led by Associate Partner Zara de Belder, now covers five core pillars within sustainability: strategy development, corporate communications, governance and investor relations, public affairs and digital design. The practice has a roster of clients across a variety of sectors, including financial services, renewable energy and retail and consumer goods.
Commenting, Neil Bennett, Chief Executive of Maitland/AMO said: “Over the last decade, the sustainability landscape has evolved dramatically and is now considered a boardroom priority. Companies need to ensure sustainability is embedded within their strategy, culture and values. Launching Maitland/AMO Sustain is an important milestone for Maitland/AMO as we look to help businesses communicate their corporate purpose authentically.”
Zara de Belder, Associate Partner and Head of Maitland/AMO Sustain, added: “With a fresh identity and a new philosophy, Maitland/AMO Sustain is uniquely placed to help companies develop and communicate their sustainability strategy. I look forward to supporting organisations as they embark on their journey to building a more sustainable future.”
At the start of the year, Maitland/AMO also announced that Cicero Group joined AMO, the global strategic advisory network, to accelerate the next stage in its growth plans.
