Providing value through sustainability science, economics and management
We advise on economic, social, and governance solutions to environmental impact problems by assisting managers and decision makers on how to:
- Integrate economic, social and environmental factors into decision making and report on outcomes;
- Engage in sustainable economy, circular economy and green growth development;
- Report on corporate sustainability performance through application of the Global Reporting Initiatives’ Sustainability Standards;
- Link environment-economy interactions and environmental asset trends in national, regional and local economies;
- Link environment-society interactions and social issue trends in national, regional and local economies; and
- Take climate change risk and impact scenarios into account in business or public policy decisions.
We do this through consultation, data analysis, evidence based research, change management, and training and workshops.
Our approach to sustainability
Sustainable development is a theory of development about how to maintain and enhance the natural environmental base on which economic and social livelihoods depend. Our approach is to investigate and advise on the development pathways that lead to sustainability, defined as the socioeconomic and governance behaviour required to avoid counter-productive environmental and natural resource management problems.
Sustainability pathways require:
- A sustainable economy / green growth model
- Governments to develop public policies with better and more targeted incentives and regulations
- Businesses to implement strategies to eliminate unnecessary risks, costs and liabilities, and
- Stakeholders to advocate for change and change management.
