Zurich/Sydney, March 14, 2022 – Republic of Everyone, Australia's leading sustainability and impact specialist, has announced that it is joining South Pole, the international leader in climate services, solutions, and carbon project development.
As the number of businesses seeking sustainability services continues to grow, Republic of Everyone will complement South Pole's existing offering and help meet the subsequent rise in demand for related strategic marketing, design, branding, and innovation services.
“At South Pole we help companies along a five step Climate Journey, one step of which is to communicate and lead," said Renat Heuberger, CEO of South Pole. “From frontrunners who are eager to tell the world about their transformational climate action to smaller companies who might need a hand with their first sustainability report, having Republic of Everyone on board will complement our existing client communications services and enhance our offering around design, marketing and branding support."
Republic of Everyone, based in Australia with clients around the world (including Autodesk, QuadReal, and Unilever), is a creative consultancy that works with companies and brands to formulate unique sustainability, marketing, and branding strategies that help prioritise a company's impact and allow it to stand out from competitors.
“Since we began in 2007, it has been clear to us that excellence in strategy and communications is essential in helping companies maximise their sustainability impact and earn a business benefit from doing so. Joining South Pole opens the door to creating change on a global scale, by helping companies who are already doing great things to do even better," said Ben Peacock, CEO of Republic of Everyone.
The new practice within South Pole will create a standardised and scalable set of strategic marketing, branding and product innovation solutions that ensure clients are fully supported on every step of their Climate Journey.
This announcement follows several other recent acquisitions by South Pole, including CO2logic in Belgium, Carbonsink in Italy and GoClimate in Sweden, as well as the announcement of a new round of minority investment by Temasek and Salesforce Ventures.
Republic of Everyone will continue to serve its existing clients while being fully integrated as a South Pole company over the coming months.
