We primarily advise multinational companies, banks and law firms; and often support other consultancy firms.    


Sustain Value advises a broad range of multinational companies from a variety of sectors, as well as banks and law firms. We have worked directly or indirectly for APP, Antofagasta, Eni, Exxon, Green Investment Bank, HSBC, Hitachi, International Finance Corporation, International Paper, Kraft, Rio Tinto, Roche, Shell, TechMet, Total, Tullow Oil, Vedanta Resources and WPP. Prior to establishing Sustain Value, James provided consulting services to numerous other multinational companies, banks and law firms as well as government departments and NGOs.

Sustain Value clients also include business representative organisations such as the Natural Capital Coalition, WBCSD (World Business Council for Sustainable Development), IPIECA (the global oil and gas industry association for environmental and social issues), Abu Dhabi Sustainability Group and the Chilean Mining Council.   

We pride ourselves on the fact that the vast majority of our work is from repeat clients, highly satisfied with the service provided. This has helped us become one of the UK's leading Sustainability Consultancy firms - as voted for by clients - in the 2018 Financial Times Management Consultancy survey.   

With clients located throughout the world, recent project assignments have involved working at sites across Europe, South America, North America, Africa and the Middle East.  

We have developed experience in a range of sectors including:

  • Extractives (e.g. oil, gas and mining)

  • Energy (e.g. fossil fuels, biofuels, renewables and nuclear)

  • Water & wastewater

  • Industry (e.g. paper and pulp, food, chemicals, manufacturing and technology)

  • Maritime (e.g. ports, marinas, pipelines and coastal developments)

  • Tourism & transport

  • Coastal, forestry, agriculture (e.g. sugar cane, coffee and tea) & biodiversity

  • Finance, legal & insurance

Although mainly focussed on the private sector, we also undertake assignments for governments and non-governmental organisations.
