be part of a sustainable, low carbon revolution

Sustainable development means balancing environmental, social and economic stewardship.

Companies are facing a wide range of sustainability challenges, including:

  • resource scarcity – from peak oil to precious minerals and rare metals; from water to land use
  • climate change mitigation and adaptation
  • demonstrating traceability through complex supply chains.

For a sustainable revolution to succeed means developing innovations which offer customer convenience, provide business opportunities, and lead to an avalanche of mass take up.

what does a sustainable business look like?

  • Linear business models are transformed into circular, closed loop economies
  • Resources are used efficiently, sustainably produced and renewable
  • ‘Waste’ streams are treated as valuable raw materials.

To be responsible, companies need to demonstrate the highest standards of ethical practices and good governance in societies which feed their supply chain and in which they market their goods and services.

Sustainable business is on the boardroom agenda.  In our experience, sustainability strategy, risks, opportunities and performance rank in the top 10 issues right across a wide range of economic sectors, including:

  • Resources – oil & gas, mining, biofuels, agriculture, fisheries
  • Utilities – energy, renewables, water, transport, telecommunications
  • Building, construction and property
  • Processing and Manufacturing – industrial and consumer goods
  • Retailing and Services
  • Financial services – banks, insurance, investment.
