In the face of new challenges — like automation, an aging workforce, spending cuts, globalisation, and digitisation — public sector organisations must refocus on what they do and how they do it to maximise their impact on citizens and communities across the globe. We help leaders at the most successful organisations ensure that they are invested in the right capabilities, are sustainably funded, and have the means to deliver on their purpose. This is strategy, made real.
The UN Economic Commission for Europe initiated work in Southeast Europe to build single-window facilities for import and export clearance, which required harmonisation of trade data requirements in the region to ensure building-interoperable systems. Strategy& gathered and developed an understanding of the respective data requirements in participating countries and identified relevant international standards and best practices for data standardisation. We coordinated with officials and representatives of customs administrations, other agencies, and ministries involved in international trade, as well as representatives from the private sector. After performing the necessary data analysis, we developed a regional trade data harmonisation strategy and detailed technical guidelines associated with this strategy—all of which were adopted. Strategy& also held several workshops for participating countries, enabling them to continue the harmonisation effort.
Strategy& was engaged to identify opportunities that could effectively encourage the development and uptake of low-carbon processes in high-impact industries in the U.K. After identifying a number of sectors with high CO2 emissions levels, we assessed the reduction potential of their production processes and the feasibility of interventions. As a result of our work, we identified CO2 reductions totaling 3 million tons and developed an intervention strategy to achieve these reductions. Intervention plays were prioritised on the basis of CO2 reduction potential, feasibility, and resource requirements.
