Occasionally, Green Strategy collaborates with other consultancy firms and independent consultants for different purposes and in different forms. For example, collaboration can occur by contracting a sub-consultant for specific tasks within a larger consultancy project owned by Green Strategy. Other times, collaboration can take place through the exchange of ideas, experience, niche competence or contacts. Below are some examples of independent consultants that we have had the pleasure to work with in different forms.
