What we offer

All our clients face tough sustainability challenges. They come to NewForesight for structural solutions that will create a positive and lasting impact. The solutions we bring create shared opportunities: opportunities for businesses to generate profit, for supply chain actors to increase their income, and for governments to create ecological and social value in production landscapes.

We do not address the symptoms; we address the cause. Whether we are creating a company business model to provide services to farmers or a governance structure for a collaboration between companies and government, we focus on systemic solutions that create market incentives for sustainable behavior. By creating the ‘right’ market incentives, we can encourage sustainable behavior that results in opportunities for your company and your stakeholders.

Our solutions

To help our clients create shared opportunities among themselves and their stakeholders, we offer four categories of solutions:

  1. Developing sustainability strategies: to design strategies that mobilize different actors into joint action, we forge an ambitious long-term vision with a clear path that leads there. We work together with you to develop a shared vision that unlocks the power to change system dynamics, and creates a new (and sustainable) normal.
  2. Creating business models: in our business modeling, we optimize business value and sustainability impact through a focus on innovation and clear, quantifiable results. These business models can provide you with the insights necessary to take informed decisions that lift your strategy to the next level.
  3. Organizing governance: the key to effective collaboration is a robust coordination structure, which we design and organize with a fit-for-purpose backbone organization at the core. Our structures follow your strategy and enable you to work effectively and efficiently towards your sustainability goals.
  4. Establishing credibility: the move towards sector sustainability requires that stakeholders are held accountable to their commitments, while being able to learn from their mistakes and claim their successes. We develop the necessary tools that will allow you to claim credibility, and ensure continuous improvement.
