Sustainable Metrics

Sustainable Metrics, a CSR and SD consulting and research agency

At the crossroads of carbon monitoring, CSR expertise and accounting, the founders of Sustainable Metrics created the company in 2014 with the strong belief that the link between social and environmental performance and economic performance was a subject in its own right for all companies and that accountants could bring a great contribution to this field. Based on the experience and pragmatic approach of its founders, Sustainable Metrics, led by Jean-Baptiste Cottenceau, is a consulting and research firm that provides operational support to companies and local authorities in their sustainable development strategy and in the monitoring of their non-financial performance indicators.
