  • Accursed Mountains Fundraising Climb

    The Acre Foundation is the charitable arm of Acre, with a focus on making an impact on people, communities and the environment. In October 2019, 12 Acre employees travelled to Kosovo, Albania and Montenegro, to trek The Accursed Mountain range to raise money for Plastic Ocean. This video captures the team throughout their 4 day journey.

  • The Social Board

    For many company boards, tackling the unmet needs of society is an aspiration that can be delegated to Corporate Social Responsibility teams. They see government as primarily responsible for addressing challenges such as climate change and mental illness, leaving boards to focus on shareholder value. The main argument in this paper is that the relationship between business and society has reached a point where the voice of society needs to be introduced explicitly as a stakeholder in the boardroom.

Service Overview

Acre works with a range of non-profit organisations to help drive programmes around sustainability related initiatives. This includes charities, foundations, membership bodies and multi-stakeholder-initiatives (MSIs).

The non-profits that we work with tackle a range of challenges including:

  • Circular economy including ocean plastics

  • Human rights including worker safety and gender empowerment

  • Habitat protection and enrichment

  • Energy and climate change 

We work on a range of positions, including executive level roles (CEO’s, Executive Directors, Operations Directors and other C-level roles), other commercial positions, and roles which require domain knowledge of the issue being addressed. Where we are engaged to source commercial professionals, we can utilise Acre’s Framework’s competency assessment tool to add extra insight to the interview process.

Acre has undertaken extensive executive search work with multi-stakeholder-initiatives, which are formed to facilitate collaboration by a number of different companies looking to address a common challenge. We have undertaken extensive work with non-profits in a range of countries including Europe, North America, the sub-continent (including Bangladesh) and beyond.

We work on permanent recruitment assignments as well as contract and interim assignments. We can also support our clients with consultancy assignments via the Acre Bench, a group of best-in-class sustainability interim consultants and freelancers.
