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

What They Say About Us

  • To help us to invest in the success of our EHS teams, we engaged Acre to identify group strengths and development needs using their Frameworks tool.

    To ensure that we were able to put their recommendations into action, we also decided to include personal coaching sessions for each team member. The sessions with our coach have provided each team member the ability to receive professional and independent development guidance based upon their discussions and Frameworks assessment. It has been so well received that we are excited to continue the coaching going forward.

  • ​​Frameworks is the kind of innovative and bold move we have come to expect from Acre. This initiative leads the way in driving a much needed change in the EHS profession and confirms Acre’s place as market leader. The feedback from assessing the entire Lendlease EHS team has allowed us to refocus, engage, and develop our people to drive our organizational goal of creating an incident and injury free workplace. Utilizing this tool as part of their recruitment offering, Acre support us in making informed hiring decisions and seamlessly transition new staff from recruitment into development.

    Director of Environment, Health & Safety

  • Acre was the only specialist search firm able to assist with our CSR search requirement. They were professional and extremely knowledgeable and we would not have been able to hire the talent we did without their expert assistance.
