Every organisation’s strategy should be built on sustainability. We help you get there
We see sustainability as an innovation and strategy agenda. It's about staying relevant in a fast-moving world where taking responsibility for your impact is increasingly more important to customers, employees, investors, and regulators. Equally, it means rethinking how you manage your organisation and the indicators you evaluate your performance on.
This calls for consulting expertise that is less about compliance and more about strategic direction. We facilitate organisational change towards sustainability and help our clients become fit for the future by providing strategy processes and reviews, sustainability insights, and analysis as well as thought leadership and agenda setting.
We are the first accredited consulting partner in the Nordics for the Future Fit Business Benchmark. The benchmark is developed by companies such as Novo Nordisk, Ørsted, and Body Shop. We are proud to be consulting with what we think is the most actionable and ambitious framework on becoming a truly sustainable business.

Bumps on the Road to 2030: Analysing regional SGD implementation
Client: Nordic Council of Ministers and Council of the Baltic Sea States
Working with the Nordic Council of Ministers (NCM) and the Council of the Baltic Sea States (CBSS), we authored the report Baltic 2030: Bumps on the Road providing an overview of SDG implementation in the Baltic Sea Region, aimed at informing strategy and prioritisation discussions for national and regional collaboration. Performance on the SDGs is examined across the region’s eleven countries, while five selected SDGs are discussed at the indicator level. Based on this analysis and extensive stakeholder involvement, the report recommends seven avenues for action where CBSS and NCM can contribute to the Agenda 2030. The report is currently being presented in numerous high-level political events such as the Annual Forum of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region (EUSBSR).
