Resources are getting scarce and more expensive. Consumers, investors and governments are becoming more demanding around the sustainability of products and companies. In light of these developments, companies are facing a double challenge: achieving commercial success while improving the sustainability performance of the company. The answer to this challenge is called ‘Resource Effectiveness’.
Resource effectiveness means using resources as efficiently as possible, while avoiding negative impacts on the environment.
N2R2 combines the fact-based, hard-nosed and analytical approach of traditional strategy consulting with deep knowledge of sustainable solutions, to help companies achieve competitive advantage through resource effectiveness.
