Who we are
Our mission is to help organisations make a positive impact on people and their living environment and the generations to follow.
We work with companies, financial institutions, international organisations, academic institutions, governments, and community-based organisations, to support the sustainable and responsible management of both large-scale and small-scale development projects.
From project social and human rights assessments, stakeholder engagement, and support in implementation of best practice in responsible business conduct, to training, capacity building, and coaching, we work with organisations and their people so they can understand the context where they operate, build respectful relationships, and contribute value.
We are an interdisciplinary, intercultural, multi-lingual, international team that is effective in making sense of and working through social issues that are unstructured, cross-cutting and complex. Respect for people is at the centre of how we approach these issues, and we believe in working with integrity, honesty and kindness.
Our core team, which brings strong technical knowledge and breadth of geographic experience, includes nine employees based in the Netherlands, Denmark, South Africa, Germany, Brazil, UK, and the USA.
We strongly believe in matching the right expertise to what the project needs, so we also draw on a network of experienced and tested experts with particular subject area expertise and local knowledge to respond to specific project requirements. We deliver projects in English, Portuguese, Spanish, French, and Russian.
