MJ Hudson expands ESG & Sustainability business to Spain

by Silvia Saccardi 4 November 2022

MJ Hudson Group has expanded its ESG & sustainability business into Spain as Maria Merry del Val joins alongside a Spanish ESG consulting firm.

The Spanish extension will be based in Madrid. The business was established in Amsterdam and has since added offices in London and New York.

The new team will specialise in regulation and due diligence with a key focus on transformative growth.

The 70 person ESG & sustainability team provides ESG policy and regulation, due diligence, performance monitoring, training, investor reporting and carbon and climate insights. In addition, its platform, ESG Advantage, offers a team of analysts alongside AI technology to identify value creation opportunities through its 5-point rating scale.

MJ Hudson has applied to join SPAINCAP, the Spanish private equity trade association. Prior to the inauguration of the Spanish team, the firm opened Barcelona-based research and development offices.

Emma Bickerstaffe, managing director of MJ Hudson ESG & sustainability, commented: “We are excited by the prospect of extending our ESG & sustainability services to Spanish clients. Maria and the team bring a wealth of experience which will help us accelerate our plans for growth globally.”

Maria Merry del Val added: “I am convinced there is good synergy for clients and staff going forward in our combined service offer for Spain. This move therefore feels like a natural combination for us and we look forward very much to being part of the MJ Hudson international family.”
