Sustainability Strategy and ESG
A collaborative / hands-on model
Our team accompanies private and public sector clients (as well as our portfolio companies) in the development of their sustainability and ESG strategies using a hands-on and collaborative approach and drawing upon 15+ years of experience in sustainability and strategy consulting.
A structured / data driven approach
Our strategy/ESG projects typically begin with a materiality assessment and the mapping of all organizational activities and then follow with the application of our proprietary ideation framework to generate solutions and initiatives. These solutions/initiatives are then thoroughly prioritized using a detailed cost-benefit analysis combining a set of detailed criteria that draw upon the latest research in the field. These criteria are regularly reviewed and updated.
Sustainable Travel and Nature Conservation
The growing sustainable travel and ecotourism market
Human development and mobility have put unprecedented pressure on our planet and ecosystems leading to the current climate crisis and to an alarming level of biodiversity loss (the sixth extinction).
In response, travelers are becoming more environmentally conscious. They are seeking more sustainable and healthier choices, in combination with unique authentic and cultural experiences. This expansion of sustainable travel, expected to reach a market size of $1.5 trillion by 2025, will also be accelerated by the COVID pandemic with people looking to stay away from crowds and to spend more time outdoors.
Our sustainable travel offering
Our team supports public and private sector organizations in the development of their sustainable travel strategies including the development of a sustainable destination strategy, the design and strategy for a nature reserve/national park, and the business/corporate strategy for a private business seeking to expand into sustainable travel and ecotourism.
