Frontrunner Projects: Staying ahead

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrint

Next to being a sustainability management consultancy, E2 has specialised in composing projects for the further development of sustainability management.

These E2 frontrunner projects have the following characteristics:

  • E2 often launches these projects and motivates a group of companies to jointly develop innovative solutions.
  • 5 to 10 frontrunner companies participate and finance the project, and thereby share the project costs.
  • E2 acts as project manager, consultant and author of project reports.
  • The results are not only used by the project participants, but are often also made available to the public.
