Market analysis and competitor review

Market analysis and competitor review

Helping you to understand sustainability best practice

Ricardo Energy & Environment regularly reviews sectors and markets to understand what many companies are doing. Knowing what your comparable companies or market competitors are doing can give you a financial, and reputational edge.

By working with us we can review your comparable organisations and provide recommendations on areas where your current strategy may fall short.

Our knowledge comes through many routes. Much of our business works with Governments, donors, and voluntary groups, gathering evidence-based knowledge of various markets, and advising on future market initiatives, and we  have teams who work internationally and across sectors. In addition, we also carry out our own market research, and work with partners to gather further information.

Once we have a firm understanding of the market we can work with your in-house sustainability team to review or develop strategies. Our approach is always tailored depending on your requirements.

Internal to your organisation, we focus on data gap analyses and staff interviews to ascertain current practice and ambition levels. These findings can then be combined with a competitor analysis to understand what similar organisations are doing about their sustainability.

We use our experience in research, analysis and stakeholder engagement to effectively put in place practical sustainability strategies that demonstrate to investors and other stakeholders that sustainability is a cornerstone of our customers’ business.

We are also able to deploy a range of resources, such as CDP responses, to help you build or improve your sustainability strategy going forward.
