Ricardo recognised as leading UK management consultancy by the Financial Times
03 February 2022

Ricardo’s expertise in sustainability consultancy has been recognised in the Financial Times’s fifth annual rating of the UK’s leading management consultants. 

The global consultancy’s experience and knowledge in providing trusted advice to clients in sustainability has featured in the Financial Times’s rating every year since the awards began.  
Tim Curtis, Managing Director of Ricardo Energy & Environment, said: “Recognition as a leading management consultancy by the Financial Times for the fifth year in succession is a brilliant achievement. I am extremely proud of the continued excellence demonstrated through our sustainability and environment specialists. Being recognised is a testament to the trust placed in us by our clients and the quality of the work that we have undertaken on high profile, nationally important projects addressing net zero and climate change.  

Ricardo’s experts have been helping a wide range of multi-national companies to develop robust and science-based pathways to transition to net-zero carbon emissions. A recent example of Ricardo developing net-zero pathways includes working with Ferrexpo, one of the world’s largest exporters of iron ore pellets, to help the organisation decarbonise operations, as it seeks to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.  

Ricardo will not only enhance Ferrexpo’s carbon reduction targets and further develop climate change reporting in 2022, but will also help to drive change in the industry, which will contribute to a low carbon transition, and will also benefit organisations using Ferrexpo products in their supply chain. 

The Financial Times’s rating of the UK’s leading management consultants is based on recommendations by their clients and peers. Compiled with Statista, a data company, it assesses consultants’ work in 15 sectors and for 14 types of specialist work.  

The results are based on two Statista surveys – one giving feedback from clients and the other of consultants evaluating their peers. Consultancies are then awarded gold, silver and bronze ratings according to how often they are recommended. Just under 200 consultancies have been recognised this year, receiving 728 ratings across 29 different industries and consulting services.
