Critical Resource is a specialist advisor on stakeholder, political and sustainability challenges. We believe that companies can unlock major commercial value by managing these challenges in a strategic and responsible way. We operate as a strategic unit within the ERM Group, the world’s largest sustainability consultancy.
We provide three types of services: due diligence and assurance that stakeholder, political and reputational risks are well understood and managed prior to our clients making key investments or strategic decisions; practical support at the project level to help in-country teams achieve project outcomes; and finally, group-level strategies to align and position organisations as a whole to mitigate risks and realise opportunities.
We operate through a network of advisors in over 75 countries and our Senior Advisory Panel includes eminent figures from industry, finance and global development such as Charles Holliday, Former Chair of Shell, Rachel Kyte, former CEO of Sustainable Energy for All, and Evy Hambro, CIO Natural Resources at BlackRock.
