Services for Businesses

Understanding your dependency on natural resources

One way or another your business depends on natural resources. If you are related to the paper-business for instance, your will not only need trees, but you also require water, if you deal with food products, you would want to work with healthy and clean vegetables, fruit and animals for what you will need clean water, soil and air. Even if you work with insurances, you would want to understand how climate change will affect your clients and thus, your operation. This complex service will enable you to understand how you depend on natural resources, what kind of risks you will have to face and what kind of opportunities already exist to eliminate risks both policy and financial-wise.

Our strength

Why to work with us on ecosystem services?

The concept of ecosystem services is relatively new – especially in Central and Eastern Europe -, however we have already had a big chunk of involvement in participating in related processes including the international IPBES (Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services) and the EU’s Mapping and Assessment of Ecosystems and Ecosystem Services (MAES) processes along with several EU (FP7, Horizon 2020, Interreg and LIFE projects) and EU expert groups. In our recent ecosystem evaluation projects, we have paid elevated emphasis on involving local stakeholders as well as experts in the evaluation process through participatory approach in order to get better results.

Due to our vast knowledge in UN, EU and national energy, environmental and financial policies, we are here to investigate and disclose the policy hooks and the financial opportunities as well as their recent development in relation to your international project. With a profound understanding of policies and financing as well as their recent trends, you can become an even more agile and highly adaptive player through discovering opportunities you may not have been aware of. We can compile regular briefings in recent and potential policy developments and international financing opportunities for you to follow changes, or we can compose synthesis studies on one or more policy and financing fields.

As certified facilitators and advisors running almost 100 international and national workshops, we can nurture processes from plans to successful completion. With our basic values of candour, respect of opinion and mindful listening, we can make all participants comfortable to share their points openly, which in return help their empowerment and responsibility to carry out the project till the finish.

Easy-to-understand outcomes
