Cleantech and sustainability services

Managing the risks and opportunities of growing sustainably and adopting clean technologies is gaining prominence on the business agenda. The growing regulatory burden and stakeholder pressure, social risks, the effectiveness of social investments, the drive to improve resource efficiency, the re-use of materials and “green” and safe production — all these have become vital concerns for executives and need to be specifically addressed.
