St. Paul, Minnesota, December 21, 2020: Three Antea Group USA employees were presented with the Environment+Energy Leader (E+E) 100 Award on December 5, 2020. Peylina Chu (Antea Group), Angie Dickson (Antea Group and Inogen Alliance), and Charlie Quann (Antea Group) all received the honor.
The annual E+E 100 recognizes those environment and energy “doers” who break trail in creating new solutions, programs, platforms, best practices and products to help their companies – or other companies – achieve greater success in commercial and industrial environment and energy management.
"We are very proud of the hard work and accomplishments of Peylina Chu, Angie Dickson, and Charlie Quann,” says Brian Ricketts, CEO of Antea Group USA. “They are each great examples of the breadth of talent and innovative spirit that represents our organization. This past year was a demanding one in light of the COVID-19 pandemic -- yet our employees remained committed to finding new solutions and programs to solve our client's toughest environment, health, safety, and sustainability challenges. On behalf of Antea Group USA, we are both humbled and thrilled to have our employees recognized by this distinguished industry award.”

Charlie Quann is a passionate energy and sustainability engineer with a track record of helping companies become more sustainable while improving their bottom line. Charlie leads Antea Group USA’s Climate Change and Carbon Management and Science-Based Targets service lines. He holds a master’s degree in mechanical engineering, is a TRUE Zero Advisor, and a certified energy manager. Charlie has conducted dozens of facility optimization assessments on four continents and has advised senior leadership of global companies on greenhouse gas strategy and management. Charlie combined energy, carbon, water, and waste into a single facility optimization assessment for clients looking to meet ambitious multifaceted targets. Rather than conducting multiple assessments consuming the site staff’s valuable time, Charlie has worked to craft holistic assessments with his team of facility optimization experts. He has also worked to build skills among the staff at client sites (using the Energy Star Treasure Hunt model) so that they can conduct their own assessments. Recently, Charlie has been working to bundle greenhouse gas strategy work with action-oriented decarbonization work. Charlie leverages his mechanical engineering and operational background to support companies in their move from “climate reporting” to “climate action.”
