With profound research and advice, Profundo aims to make a practical contribution to sustainability and social justice. Thematically we focus on international commodity chains, the financial sector, government policies and Corporate Social Responsibility. Our international client base includes non-governmental organizations (NGOs), trade unions, research institutes and government institutions, as well as foundations.
You will research the investments, financing, tax strategies and equity valuations of companies involved in international commodity chains (mining, agriculture, fisheries, forestry, energy) and other sectors with significant social and environmental impacts (garments, weapons, electricity, etc.). With this type of research we aim to understand how sustainability risks (for the environment, workers, local communities, etc.) created by corporate activities can translate into business risks and financial risks, and which leverage options stakeholders (shareholders, banks, governments, NGOs) might have to mitigate and avoid such risks by influencing corporate strategies. Specifically:
With your research results you can support investors, governments and NGOs to address negative sustainability impacts of corporate actors and to stimulate adequate CSR policies and regulations which foster sustainable and inclusive development. Presenting your research findings in webinars and meetings with investors and other stakeholders will therefore be part of this job as well.
