Our goal is a sustainable resource economy, in which the world’s citizens and environment thrive together, now and in the future.

  • How can we shape future demand?

    Technology and new business models make it possible to do much more with much less. Governments and companies must seize the opportunity.

  • Will new tech bring sustainability?

    Digitalization, big data and circular and ‘sharing’ economies are reconfiguring global economic activities. Alignment with environmental goals is key.

  • How can land deliver all we need?

    Land delivers critical services, from food, climate response to cleaner air and water. Reconciling competing demands for land use is a good start.

Working with thought-leaders in politics, business and research, we bring clarity to complex issues through trusted evidence and insightful analysis.
