Increasing regulatory pressure and the need for rethinking operations and value creation to meet sustainability requirements have led to the emergence of Green Consulting. Traditionally, management consulting firms have adapted to market trends and developed capabilities to guide companies in transformation processes. This necessary ability to adapt and engage in knowledge acquisition has been studied extensively by research. Previous research has focused on the effect sustainability issues have had on the dynamics between consultancies and their clients. We use a qualitative data collection method from four different French management consulting firms to give an overview of “How management consultancies are building their Green Consulting offer?”. Our findings show that consultancies are still in the early stages of developing and structuring the activity. A flexible organzational structure and initiative taking on the part of consultants are paramount in the companies in which the activity is the most developed.
