Real Estate, Hospitality & Construction industry

The RH&C industry is particularly vulnerable to issues involving energy and water use as well as human capital and land use. Stakeholder demands for better working conditions, energy efficiency as well as health and safety have impacted many companies. In addition, land rights issues are often the catalyst for bringing negative attention from NGOs.

Examples of our work:
