We help them balance competing economic, social and environmental goals. Our advice goes right to the heart of policy and strategy, addressing everything from the international development policies of major donors to changing regulations and consumer preferences, to the security of supply chains, climate risk and the challenges of urbanisation.
Tackling all the issues
Around 800 specialists – including nearly 100 in the UK – use a blend of skills, experience and tools, as well as scale and reach, to analyse the issues, shape strategy and deliver practical solutions.
We also work with Economics Consulting to provide economic analysis and policy advice for public and private sector clients across the world, including government and intergovernmental organisations, think tanks, multinationals and non-government organisations (NGOs).
Our policy and economic advice ranges from green growth to climate change and climate smart agriculture, and is particularly focused on how the public and private sectors can work together to deliver more sustainable development.
In Assurance and Reporting, we help companies explain, develop and communicate their position and performance in tackling sustainability issues. We provide advice on processes, systems, controls and internal and external reporting, as well as providing independent assurance around key sustainability-related data and information.
In Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) and Operations, we’re working with our clients to assess their responses to sustainability-related risks and opportunities to embed consideration of these into their core strategy and business processes.
In Programme Delivery, we work on international development, supporting governments, donor organisations, and NGOs tackling issues from policy development through to fund management and programme implementation. Our expertise includes poverty alleviation and economic development, forestry, ecosystems and climate change.
In Strategy Support, whether it’s anticipating changes in markets or in competition, understanding and managing the risks climate change brings or embracing the opportunities offered by renewable energy, we help clients address the issues that will have the greatest impact on their organisations.
