What we do
We believe there is a need for a consultancy that has top-tier management consultancy skills, but that is also specialized on sustainability. These questions are so complex, and the business landscape is moving so fast, that we believe specialization is essential to be helpful to our clients. We put our clients’ interests first, focusing on value creation, but believe the conflict between shareholders’ and societies’ interests are much smaller than they used to be. We chose our name – Material Economics – because we believe that bringing the economic and business view to natural resource questions is important.
We work with both companies, the public sector, and philanthropy, but always within our area of expertise. In many cases, we also act as the principal of a project or an environmental theme, when we have identified a knowledge gap in an industry or on a specific question. Then we proactively gather a consortium of companies, regulators and sometimes philanthropies to address this gap. Our ambition is to become long-term thought-partners to our clients, as the complex issues we are dealing with often requires more than a one-off project.
Our team consists of former consultants of top-tier management consultancies who are passionate about sustainability. We are located in Stockholm, Sweden but work internationally.
