Audire Consultants and Acorn International have agreed a two-year memorandum of understanding to work together in delivering environmental, health, safety and social (EHSS) risk management consulting services to clients around the world.
Houston-based Acorn International provides affordable, world-class EHSS assurance consulting services overseas. The company operates not through a traditional consulting services model, but by providing structured tools and support to qualified host-country teams, maintaining a link with international clients and building capacity in the host-country team.
As part of the agreement, Audire Consultants’ Managing Director Clare Bebbington will join Acorn International’s Global Experts Network. She said: ‘I’m delighted to be part of the wider Acorn International team. We share many of the same values, and – like Acorn – believe particularly in the importance of developing and supporting in-country teams.’
Acorn International Managing Director Dean Slocum said: ‘We are delighted to have Clare as an integral part our Global Experts Network. Her recognized global expertise in social performance and CSR will provide an important complement to our ability to deliver broader services to our clients, particularly at the senior and executive leadership level.’
