We’re delighted to share the news that Corporate Citizenship has been acquired by SLR, a global leader in environmental and advisory solutions, with a team of 1,700+ talented professionals delivering advice and support from a network of offices in Europe, North America, Asia-Pacific and Africa.
Across the globe, Citizens, Governments, Regulators, Investors and Corporations are taking ambitious action to respond to sustainability challenges. This is creating an unprecedented demand for strategic advisory, reporting, analytics and technical services in the ESG space.
Corporate Citizenship is one of the largest and longest-standing specialist consulting firms focusing exclusively on Sustainability and ESG.

Given the very significant and rapid shift underway on ESG and sustainability issues, we see a significant opportunity for SLR and Corporate Citizenship to come together to not only support organisations with strategic advice but also, very importantly, implement improvement and change that drives real benefits and value.”

This is a significant move in our plans in the ESG consulting services market. We look forward to working with the Corporate Citizenship team on the next stage of growth.”
Esther Toth, Global Managing Director at Corporate Citizenship commented: “Over the last ten years ESG has become a strategic business discipline that drives value creation over the short, medium and long-term. Companies that proactively think and act on ESG risks and opportunities are already outperforming their peers. Together with SLR, we share a common objective to help clients integrate ESG into business strategy and operations across the entire value chain. I am extremely proud of the global business and team that Corporate Citizenship has built over the past two decades. As part of SLR, we have an exciting opportunity to grow faster, expand our scope, and provide solutions that deliver measurable, positive social and environmental impact.”

Here in North America, expectations for companies to deliver on ESG have never been higher. Together with SLR, we can scale our capacity to bring market leading strategic ESG advisory and implementation capabilities to our clients across the US and Canada.
