KJAER ADVICE works in the intersection between private business, civil society organizations, academia and government entities.
Our core delivery is to enable our clients develop sustainable strategies while engaging in strategic multi-sector partnerships.
Our vision is to make a significant difference when aligning the pursuit of commercial business opportunities with real social impact – that is, to create shared value.
We are living in an age where social, environmental and economic goals coincide. Decision makers from both the public and private sector today realize that social problems represent both daunting constraints to their operations but also vast opportunities for sustainable growth.
Within our societies and in our interconnected world, a variety of partners from different sectors will need to work much more closely together to counter threats associated with an uneven distribution of wealth or even declining growth and the social effects arising as a consequence. Businesses will need to focus their strategy on ways to achieve the twin goals of innovating to meet society’s needs and build a profitable business. Government partners will need to create an enabling environment in which business and also partners from within civil society can play a more active part.
Partnership collaboration is increasingly seen as central e.g. to achieve the newly adopted UN Global Goals. It is the hypothesis that only with comprehensive and widespread cross-sector collaboration can we ensure that sustainable development initiatives are imaginative, coherent and integrated enough to tackle the most intractable problems.
The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. – Aristotle
