Press release 28 March 2012
Energy and carbon management firm, Pangolin Associates, is a Top 50 start up, according to StartupSmart Awards 2012. The company of 5 full time employees began operating in August 2010. Less than 2 years later revenue exceeds $750,000, despite deepening concerns of a second global financial crisis.
With a growing network of clients and partners, revenue and staff are expected to rise substantially over the coming months. Pangolin also expanded operations to the west coast in late 2011. The region is rapidly proving its potential.
Matthew Curnow, Joint Managing Director, says, “it’s the quality of our work combined with our agility that gives us the edge in the market.” Curnow adds, “we respond quickly, whether to a client’s individual needs, or to conditions affecting the market more broadly in the changing carbon economy.”
An example of the company’s agility, Pangolin has just launched a Carbon Strategy and Risk Report. Curnow says the report is a critical strategic tool for future budgeting. Basing potential costs on financial accounts and invoicing data, “it helps businesses substantiate price increases they may need to pass on to customers due to the incoming carbon tax.”
