Sustainability: Creating long-lasting impact together!

We believe the key to innovative, impact-driven long-lasting solutions begins with the collaboration and support of our partners, clients, and teams.

Making organizations ready for the future

Sustainability Do-Tank

Corporate Do-Tank

Think Tanks have proven to be a fantastic tool to create and share knowledge. We decided to push this methodology to the next level and create formats, where we mix trend and strategic analysis, while iterating on constant explorations and interactions with peers and experts. This format is leading to direct action and tangible outcomes for our clients.
We call it a do-tank.

Deplastify the Planet (DTP)

We tackle challenges using a user-centered approach; and ask ourselves: how might we create a solution that responds to the user’s needs while being economically and environmentally sustainable?

Every semester, the ‘Deplastify The Planet’ program brings together students with local start-ups, NGOs, middle-sized companies, and global organizations to form a single ecosystem for a more sustainable future.

Design Fiction allows us back-casting from scenarios of possible futures into the present while equipping us with a flexible mindset towards business strategy and innovation thinking. In using such narrative elements to envision and explain possible futures for your business, we suspend the disbelief about change and make it feel present and urgent.

For example, working through benefits, challenges, and opportunities of a new technology or market development might unearth a whole new short and long-term vision for your organization.
