Environment

The importance of sustaining a livable, healthy and resilient environment is receiving widespread recognition as a fundamental issue of attention worldwide. At the same time, the environment as a sector also features many opportunities. Prospex has been working with businesses, policy-makers, researchers and civil society across the planet on the whole bandwidth of environmental topics, ranging from water, land use, resources, biodiversity climate change, agricultural policy to cutting edge research on issues such as emerging world environmental issues or the operationalisation of ecosystem services.
