Press release 1 June 2012
Energy and carbon management consultancy, Pangolin Associates, has forged a partnership with PKF, one of the top Australian accountancies and business advisories.
A joint project requiring NGER assurance (National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting act) was an early successful collaboration between the companies. Pangolin Associates Joint Managing Director, Iain Smale, says: “We have had a long and trusted relationship with PKF. Formalising the partnership is timely; it benefits our clients as they face a changing carbon economy.”
Businesses now compete for contracts with greenhouse gas compliance requirements. With the incoming Carbon Pricing Mechanism, also known as the carbon tax, partnerships formed around climate change services are increasingly part of doing business in Australia.
PKF selected Pangolin Associates for the consultancy’s high level of technical expertise, strong work ethics, and robust environmental certifications. Pangolin gives PKF the ability to provide a full suite of carbon management services, whilst the consultancy benefits from expertise in new tax obligations.
PKF Director of National Enterprise Advisers, Matthew Field, says: “We are very pleased to have Pangolin Associates as our corporate partner, their expertise will compliment our experienced Climate Change and Sustainability team”
PKF is one of the largest accountancies in Australia with 97 partners and 700 staff. They are located in 11 capital cities and regional offices nationally.
PKF offers a full range of technical accounting and business advisory services, including climate change and sustainability services. Our experts have a clear understanding of the intricacies of the clean energy legislation and the impact it will have on organisations across different industries, and provide support to businesses in understanding their position and obligations with regards to the numerous new requirements. www.pkf.com.au
