Padd Energy Joins Forces with Anthesis Group

We are pleased to announce that Padd Energy has been acquired by Anthesis, the world’s largest dedicated group of dedicated sustainability experts.

Padd Energy’s decade of energy sector expertise will complement and bolster Anthesis’ established Energy Systems team, working together to help tackle the global energy crisis and transition clients and partners on their net-zero journey by reducing carbon emissions and providing greater importance on energy security.

This announcement is another significant milestone in Anthesis’ growth strategy following its investment from Palatine last year and marks Anthesis’ 16th merger and acquisition deal since establishing in 2013.

Brad Blundell, Managing Director of Anthesis Europe, Middle East, Latin America and Africa, commented on the deal, “We’re very pleased to welcome the Padd Energy team to Anthesis. Since the beginning of 2022, the global energy crisis set a new level of priority for low-cost, clean energy, compounded by the war in Ukraine, the steep rise in inflation and the climate emergency.

Our new combined powerhouse of energy expertise, bolstered by the broadest range of sustainability specialisms in the market, provides our clients and partners with the optimal support needed to navigate through these complex and challenging times.”

Padd Energy’s Managing Director Chris Paddey added, “We are extremely excited to join Anthesis, the largest group of sustainability professionals on the planet. Over the last nine years, I have grown Padd Energy to address some of the most complicated and pressing issues surrounding decarbonisation of complex high energy-use companies along with advising them on self-generation of renewable energy.

“Today, we join a hugely successful firm of sustainability professionals in tackling the same issues with the same passion and commitment as ourselves. We look forward to working together with our new colleagues and clients to offer the full suite of sustainability services from initial concept through to implementation.”

Tristan Craddock, Impact Partner at Palatine, commented, “Aiding the transition to net-zero is one of the key priorities of Palatine Impact so we are delighted to support Anthesis in this strategic acquisition – the third since our investment last year  – which will further expand and enhance their sustainability solutions.

“Padd Energy is at the cutting edge of the energy sector, working closely with global businesses to help them reduce their carbon emissions, and I am confident Chris and the team will make a significant contribution to Anthesis moving forward.

“Having supported the Group as it has grown to more than 1,000 experts, we are continuing to work with the Anthesis leadership team to identify similar complementary acquisitions which will help them to deliver their sustainability mission of eliminating 3Gt of CO2 by 2030.”
