The new office will meet the rapidly increasing global demand for recruitment services to tackle the climate crisis and build a safe, sustainable future.


New Office Augments London and New York Operations

London, UK: Acre today announced the opening of a new Amsterdam office, augmenting their existing presence in London and New York. This is a major milestone for Acre as they increasingly deliver on their mission to build a safer future for all through their recruitment and talent development activities.

Acre was founded in 2003 and has specialised from the outset on highly qualified specialists and leaders in Sustainability, EHS, Energy & Clean Technology and ESG & Responsible Investment. Far ahead of its time, the specialised organisation has since developed into the undisputed market leader in this growing market area.

“This office opening follows a successful 2019, from both our London and New York offices.” says Richard Wright, CEO at Acre. “Acre is already well known across Benelux, and our new office will facilitate yet further growth within the region whilst we meet the rapidly increasing global demand for our services.”

This news comes in the wake of many recent successful and highly impactful searches completed by Acre, including:

  • Director of Energy, EMEA & Head of EHS, EMEA at JLL
  • EMEA Environment, Health & Safety Manager at Cushman & Wakefield
  • Global Sustainability Director at LyondellBasell
  • Non-Executive Director at Drax Power Station

In addition, Acre welcome Harco Leertouwer who joins as Acre’s Managing Director, Benelux. Harco brings extensive international recruitment and international business growth experience, having been a Director of Michael Page in Germany and Managing Director for Badenoch & Clark Germany and the Netherlands. Harco is an active member of the Climate Reality Project and was trained by the institute’s founder, Nobel Peace Prize laureate and former US Vice President, Al Gore.
