Net Balance specialises in all aspects of sustainability and social responsibility. It’s focus is on five key domains – sustainability strategy and advice, climate change, environmental services, social and community investment and economics. If you think of sustainability and social responsibility as a value chain, Net Balance can offer services across the entire chain or in any one part of it.
It also runs the Net Balance Foundation, set up to provide open-source, public good research and to work with NGOs and SMEs that cannot usually afford to pay the full cost of sustainability services. Collectively, Net Balance aims to spend 20% of their time on Foundation work.
Net Balance has offices in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and London. It has over 40 professionals including environmental and social scientists, business consultants, engineers, lawyers, economists and accountants.
Increasingly, the work it does with clients today is often about helping them plan for tomorrow. To prepare for change we can all see coming and, more importantly, for change that cannot be predicted so easily. That’s what they mean when they talk about Tomorrow’s Agenda.
