Sustainability Strategy Consulting

We provide global intelligence from our trend analysis, combined with systemic tools that find gaps in existing strategies, discover unexpected savings, analyze stakeholders and with network analysis programs that give a strong, long term backbone to business operation. Some industries are further ahead than others in implementing new strategies and solutions. Because we work in a broad range of industries we can provide cross-sectoral intelligence to all our clients. The time when business strategy could be decided by financial and market data alone is passed. Global intelligence from many different angles can be combined into 'systemic' insights using new techniques such as system mapping, combined with trend analysis and serious gaming. Various reports from different industries show that sustainability as a business endeavour only pays off if it's used as a core business strategy. In contrast, just focusing on energy and material savings, CO2 and other physical elements will likely result in a losing proposition. A great variety of new business models have been made possible by developments in technology as well as in business management. You can take advantage of these leaner and more adaptable business models for, for instance, product development, innovation, strategy development, production and providing on demand services.
