Global Sustainability is a Norwegian based strategic management consultancy, primarily focusing on sound and sustainable business development through foresighted and knowledgeable market mechanisms, i.e. we believe that companies who integrate industrial ecology, commercial performance and corporate social responsibility (3-D) will be the winning business in the future.
Global Sustainability believes that this can be achieved by stimulating corporate social and environmental responsibilities through targeted investment analysis. Investors and market players who have access to updated, independent and credible information about the companies’ 3-D performance will have the best return of their money. Global Sustainability uses their own toolbox and indicators for the evaluation and assessment of the 3-D industrial performance and benchmarks the best in each branch. Investors, NGOs and stakeholders will have access to continuously updated information through newsletters and on-line information.
Our strength as a consultancy is due to leading competence on ecological sound industrial technology, delivered through our partner which is one Europe’s leading independent industrial research organisations, and our understanding of current and emerging sustainability issues and of stakeholder perceptions.
The companies who accept their full responsibilities for the development of a sustainable future and implement the 3-D strategy will be the winning businesses of the future.
The relations between the three dimensions of sustainable development, economy, ecology and social sustainability should always be taken into account in new projects. This enables companies and the society to simultaneously pursue economic prosperity, environmental quality and social equity.
