About Us

2xe Team

What makes us an ideal partner?

Our experience
We have worked with over 1000 companies on ESG, net zero, circular economy and sustainability consulting services, including those with substantial value chains, both in Australia and internationally. Our track record has resulted in numerous awards, including a Climate Leaders Award by the Premier of South Australia.
Our diverse range of skill sets
From our experience, developing and implementing a net zero strategy requires a diverse set of competencies and skill sets. Our team has developed and honed these skill sets over the past 10 years, which enables us to provide a holistic approach to net zero strategy development and execution. Our qualifications span engineering, data analytics, procurement, business strategy, energy management, carbon management, environmental management & systems integration.
Our commercial savvy
2XE takes a practical, business-centred approach to all of its client engagements, where our ability to productively engage with Executives on a commercial and strategic level contributes to our success. Our clients often comment that we are one of the few ESG and carbon management consulting companies in Australia with proven capability in combining both commercial business strategy with technical and management expertise to drive internal initiatives that reduce greenhouse gas emissions, reduce costs and boost company competitiveness.
Our stakeholder-centric approach
Our ESG and net zero strategy work has involved extensive engagement with a wide range of stakeholders across various parts of the organisation – from the Executive and Board down to the ‘shop-floor’. Our success in the delivery of stakeholder engagement projects is underpinned by our methodology, ability to both communicate technical concepts in ‘plain-English’, and to facilitate robust discussion around carefully constructed questions to maximise project outcomes.
Our tools & applications
Over the last 10 years of developing Net Zero Emissions and energy strategies for clients all over Australia and internationally, we have developed and refined a unique set of proprietary tools that we use to help our clients develop and implement Net Zero strategies.

Our Core Team

The heartbeat of 2XE is its team of extremely competent people who all share similar values, passion for sustainability and sense of humor.
