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.

Strategy analysis

Through screening basic strategies and documents on processes, operation and systems, we will get to know how your business is built on and depend on natural resources, which will inform organizational decisions to improve corporate strategies.

Natural resources dependency inventory

We will assess your dependencies on natural resources based on the information gathered using scientific assessments helping you form adaptation and transformation strategies of sourcing, supply chain management and product design.

Risk assessment

In relation to your current and planned business operation and systems, we identify potential risks and opportunities in terms of natural resources in order to make your business more sustainable and adaptive to current and future threats.

Understanding your project’s environmental & social impacts

There is practically no project without environmental and social impacts. Often these impacts do not surface in time due to inadequate assessment and discussions with local stakeholders causing further costs and delays. With this complex service, you are enabled to see which natural resources are affected the most and how local stakeholders may react to this, how impacts can be limited and eliminated and for this what potential tools can be used both at financial and policy levels..

Ecosystem services assessment with stakeholders

We assess ecosystem services including monetary and non-monetary valuation with stakeholder involvement including stakeholder mapping, surveys, interviews and economic/quantitative assessment of ecosystem services - this will help you understand what social and environmental impacts your project has.

Project implementation assistance

We identify intervention actions and compile recommendations to adjust your strategy, project implementation and stakeholder involvement to conserve ecosystem services most important to local stakeholders and to mitigate additional risks - this will enable you to avoid expensive legal and financial consequences (eg. compensation) and repetitional loss, mitigate conflicts with local stakeholders and operate more sustainably.

Business and policy opportunities

We reveal business and policy opportunities and requirements at the international, EU and national levels to fulfill the intervention actions or expand further steps throughout your strategies - this will help you see whether your business is thoroughly aligned with EU and national law and discover what financial sources are available to fund your projects or relevant actions.
