Sustainability Research & Due Diligence
We conduct a variety of specialized research on best of sector approaches in ethics, anti-corruption, and corporate social responsibility. We perform due diligence and investigate social, ethical and environmental practices of organizations and their supply chains.
We carried out a major participatory research project in Southeast Asia evaluating a United Nations sustainable development project. Our on-the-ground research challenged previous evaluations and resulted in immediate changes to the program to make it more sustainable and responsive to community needs.
