What we do
Coalitions, Strategy, Advice
E3G makes things happen. We work to deliver outcomes with strategic significance for the transition to sustainable development.
We do this by forging closer alignment between the actions of government, business and civil society bodies. Our collective experience in policy, politics and diplomacy gives us a unique capacity to catalyse change across institutional boundaries.
How we work
Our method is as important as our mission.
We operate in three related modes:
- Coalitions: we identify and construct the new coalitions and networks necessary to achieve targeted sustainable development outcomes;
- Strategy: we work with partners on projects to deliver the strategic visions and organisational change that underpin successful responses to the risks and opportunities of sustainable development;
- Advice: we provide high level advice on policy and politics to selected individuals and institutions.
E3G is agenda driven. We work with partners from business, government and civil society who are addressing the same challenges. This entails a high degree of mutuality in our goals.
How we add value
We add value by making connections between and within organisations. The accelerating pace of change in an increasingly resource-constrained world demands better, and faster, alignment of actions between government, business and civil society organisations.
Delivering enhanced outcomes means animating new forms of collaboration and building new coalitions for change. It means constructing effective conversations on key issues between politicians, policy makers, investors and campaigners.
E3G brings a unique set of critical capabilities to this task. Our principals have distinguished track records at senior level in government, business and NGOs. They have developed a sophisticated and successful approach to the delivery of sustainable development outcomes.
E3G is organised around a permanent strategic conversation which identifies the critical actions required to accelerate change, and the political, economic, technical and cultural conditions needed to drive it. This combines the expertise of all E3G staff in the development of compelling strategic insights and narratives which shape our interventions.
The delivery of complex change requires that political conditions and policy options are combined in real choices for decision-makers. All too often these alignments are left to chance. Drawing on our experience in driving change we have developed an innovative and effective 'change methodology', which we use to test and refine potential interventions. This enables us to approach complex problems with confidence and clarity.
As a result of this structured approach, each of our operational strands reinforces the others. Our Advice activities enable us to better target our construction of Coalitions and focus our Strategy work on areas that will deliver key outcomes. Similarly, the analysis generated and experience gained by driving change through our Coalitions and Strategy activities enable us to give high level Advice that is grounded in the realities of achieving sustainable development outcomes.
