Measuring business performance in the circular economy

2017 was an exceptional year for Quantis. We welcomed a fresh new crop of diverse talents across our group - from Berlin and Bogota to Boston.
Part of this harvest is seasoned sustainability professional Bryan Sheehan, our newly appointed US Director. His steps into this role as his predecessor, Jon Dettling, moves to a new role in the group, Global Director, Services + Innovation, where he will continue strengthening the our full suite of sustainability services.
Comparing biosourced and petroleum-based products ADEME makes study public to encourage improvement of biosourced products, as they prove more environmentally performant than their petroleum-based alternatives.
#Hack4Climate > winning team uses Quantis' expertise
Invited to COP23 by Hack4Climate, the first ever COP-related hackathon, Quantis couldn't pass up the opportunity to challenge the Top 100 blockchain aficionados to prototype blockchain and IT-based solutions for sustainable land use.
