Our story

 Pineapple was founded by Andy Dewis, former head of Sustainable Business at Schneider Electric. Responsible to the CEO for leading their transition strategy, Andy had a front-row seat to the system-wide impact multinationals can have when they work in partnership. Pineapple's mission is to bring the power of partnership to more businesses to accelerate the transition to a sustainable future, together.  

Our team

We combine a dedicated team with a roster of associate advisors. Together, we form partnerships for a sustainable future, leaning on our experience in strategy, research, deal-making, communications, and delivery.
