Globally, natural capital is fast becoming the major limiting factor for human well-being and economic productivity. Achieving greater efficiency and resilience in business, government and civil society is fundamental for unlocking economic stability and social equity.
FutureWorks is a Sustainability Consultancy. We support both public and private sector decision-makers in undertaking operational and development planning which is cognisant of natural capital as the supplier of services on which society and the worlds’ economies have come to depend. We also develop and implement green economy projects that build the capacity of people and supports the role of the natural environment in sustaining vibrant economies and human well-being. Our climate change unit provides technical and institutional support to those wanting to better understand their exposure to risks and hazards posed by a changing climate, and identify and implement appropriate adaptive responses. Building resilience to change – both known and unknown – and supporting greater efficiencies in resource use are a central to what we do.
Our team shares a unique interest in helping our clients to build their understanding of the sustainability challenges they face, and of the solutions that exist. Our consulting services offer clients a process to engage in problem solving – and not just a solution or a report as an end-product. We also share a specific interest and ability to develop out-of-the-box solutions to complex problems.
We have a vision of a Future that Works – for people, for businesses, for the economy, and for ecological systems. We acknowledge the difficulty of achieving a “perfect balance”, where all priorities are met, and where everyone benefits. So, we strive to bring a combination of innovation, science and collective wisdom into the process of supporting decision-making, developing plans and strategies, or writing policy. Our aim is to build consensus and a common understanding of the risks and the chosen solutions through our consulting processes.
