UK-based real estate-focused sustainability consultancy and services firm Evora Global announced today a new partnership with sustainability consulting firm Singapore-based Paia Consulting, expanding Evora’s reach into Asia. The company also announced plans to expand into the North American market as well.

According to Evora, the expansion plans come as the company has experienced significant growth in demand for its services. Founded in 2011, Evora has developed its own ESG software platform, SIERA, currently in deployed in over 7,000 locations globally to help investment and building managers to manage their climate risks. The SIERA platform analyses physical climate risk data alongside other collated ESG data, including carbon emissions, to enable users to understand an asset’s risks and opportunities in one platform, build resilience across their portfolio, and make informed, data-driven investment decisions.

Evora said it currently employs over 100 sustainability consultants and has 160 staff, more than doubling over the past two years.

Evora Global Founder and Managing Director Chris Bennett said:

“Evora is now serving clients in every region of the world, which is the culmination of ten years of hard work.”

Under the new partnership, Evora and Paia will provide consultancy services and ESG data to real estate clients in Asia, with Paia using SIERA in its own consultancy, helping clients improve their sustainability, ESG reporting and undertake climate risk analysis.

Carrie Johnson, Paia’s Founding Director, said:

“This collaboration enriches our capabilities to deploy technology, access insights and experience from Europe, the UK and USA for our clients. Working with the Evora team we are able to further strengthen our ESG offerings in Asia Pacific.”

Bennett added:

“We have wanted to expand into Asia-Pacific for some time and we feel that, with Paia, we have found a partner which shares our vision and values.”
