Accelerating positive social and environmental impact
Shared Planet is a stakeholder strategy, insight and engagement consultancy working at the intersection of environment and social issues. We are based in London and operate globally. We help clients to understand and manage their issue and stakeholder landscapes, so that they can build new initiatives, partnerships and strategies that are leading, intelligent and effective.
We have the heart of an NGO and the analytical rigour of a management consultancy.
Shared Planet provides research, analysis and stakeholder engagement support to clients working in the environmental and social space.
Shared Planet works primarily with civil society organisations, academic institutions, governments, and international organisations to support them to conduct research and analysis relating to their issue and stakeholder landscapes.
We take a research-led approach to our client work, using proven methodologies and frameworks that help us to bring analytical rigour to everything that we do. We specialise in complex issue management that is multi-geography and multi-disciplinary.
Our team has a big heart and we are committed to creating a better world. We care passionately about solving important and complex environmental and social problems and for this reason, we donate up to 20% of our time each year to important causes.
WEDO hired Shared Planet to undertake a very complicated project, looking at macroeconomic trends in a variety of thematic areas (tax, trade, debt, IFIs, corporate capture, as well as an overarching look at systems change and at climate finance). We have been incredibly impressed with Shared Planet and the consultants we've worked with there, and intend to hire them again for at least one subsequent project. The flexibility, sharp political analysis, and extremely pleasant working relationship has all exceeded expectations and I feel very lucky to have found them. This has been a complicated and evolving project and it literally would not be happening if we hadn’t found Shared Planet.
