Clarity in a Changing Context

We are advisors helping companies and governments to navigate the changing context of global resources.

Global context

Navigating a new reality

In a world where competition for resources is becoming more acute, and social and geopolitical crises more unpredictable, companies are being scrutinised for their use of vital resources.

The adherence to international codes of conduct is no longer enough to shield companies and investors from crises that erode their value. Improving horizon scanning and building new capabilities is essential.

We call this business diplomacy for sustainable development: It is about aligning a firm's external affairs functions, from government relations to sustainability, to respond to critical resource challenges by collaborating with governments on a vision of long-term value.
