Climate change is too complex a problem to be solved alone – we embrace and seek strategic partnerships to leverage resources, engage diverse stakeholders, and craft solutions that address specific adaptation challenges.
Our partnerships illustrate the complexity of the problems that we tackle as well as the depth of the work that we do. Whether developing original research or collaborating to deliver innovative analytics to our clients, we work closely with partners to strategically integrate our offerings and bring unique value to our clients.
Commercial Partnerships and Client Work
We team with other consulting firms to deliver comprehensive solutions to our clients. Our partners benefit from our track record of success as well as a team entirely dedicated to climate resilience.
We also work with industry associations and advocacy groups to identify common goals and bring innovation to specific sectors through grant-funded research and development.
