With the growing consciousness of global warming, higher energy costs and the consumer’s mounting desire for alternative energy sources, Cripps Sears has witnessed an explosion of activity surrounding the renewables sector worldwide.
What with more sustainable devices being deployed by our clients, as well as more energy-efficient processes being introduced to their global supply chains, the focus on sustainability is stronger than ever. This industry is the future. There has been a shift in the way we understand the importance of energy, how it is managed, how it is led and who will catapult it into the future.
We are as passionate about serving this space as the executives who lead them. We pay close attention to the trends that affect renewable energy and cover a wide range of specialities in this space. Our global reach ensures we work with the most respected companies and leaders in the industry, placing and advising CEOs, board members and C-level executives.
The settling of oil prices, and the slow but inexorable shift to less reliance on hydrocarbons, has recalibrated the economics of energy. These developments have set off a large-scale transformation across the entire value chain as traditional energy producers, utilities, clean tech companies, and services firms restructure themselves and the relationships among them for this new world. Regardless of their place in this ecology, entrepreneurial leaders are needed to make their organisations more cost-effective and innovate while absorbing rapid change in technology, geopolitics, and stakeholder sentiment.
We work closely across the entire industry to support boards, CEOs, and their teams in creating personalised leadership solutions. Our command of shifting industry dynamics allows us to rethink the experiences and competencies needed around the boardroom table, on the executive committee, and in the leadership succession pipeline, and then to help companies identify, attract, and develop the talent they need to remain competitive. To do so, our consultants, hired from industry, draw upon their operating experience not just in energy but in technology and manufacturing. We are able to help provide insight into the group dynamics and core personal qualities that create high-performing boards, teams, and leaders.
