We are always asking questions

We’re driven, every day, by the power of unwasted. This means, together with you, we can eliminate waste and reduce consumption to a sustainable level. In so doing, we reduce human impact on our world.

We start by asking a lot of questions – sometimes daring to go where others won’t. We know that this approach will get us to the core of the real challenges. Then, we provide the evidence and the practical solutions to create change.

At Eunomia, we are socio-environmental problem-solvers and researchers with a difference. We combine real-world, practical experience and deep technical knowledge with an active and proactive role in policy. This empowers us to provide applicable, science-led solutions for our clients, which ultimately drive a positive, regenerative impact on the planet.

The triple planetary crisis can only be addressed through collaboration and partnership. As your partner, we will provide the evidence, expertise and experience to create a world in which waste and pollution are minimised and consumption is sustainable within planetary boundaries.

As the leading experts in our field for more than 20 years, our role is to challenge the status quo. Our unmatched expertise means we ask searching questions with the knowledge and confidence to get to the heart of the real issues impacting our clients, the planet and society.

Together, driven by the power of unwasted, we can support the transition to a regenerative and circular economy.

Whether you are in the public, NGO or private sector, we understand the pressures you face when budgets are tight. When commercial sustainability is a challenge in its own right, solving the problems of the here and now will be top of the agenda.

At Eunomia, we pride ourselves on helping you navigate and mitigate what is coming down the road.

Our approach is grounded in decades of science-led consultancy. Our in-depth knowledge and involvement in policy give our advice real authority. And our lived experience delivering a vast range of projects – by type, by sector, by objectives – gives us a strong foundation for exploring new challenges.

Environmental matters and the regulatory landscape are complex to navigate, and continuously shifting. At Eunomia, we know that our straight-talking advice – backed by consulting and research excellence – delivers the best project outcomes.

Confronting climate change, pollution and biodiversity loss requires us to go further than a circular economy. Reducing waste is not enough. Reusing materials is not enough. Ultimately, we will need to build back and replenish the earth’s natural resources and biomaterials – not just conserve and reuse, but regenerate. This is what we call unwasting.

To put unwasting into practice requires foresight into upcoming regulation. It demands absolute laser-focus on driving innovation. And it calls for a deep understanding of the natural economy.

For decades we have driven policy and projects to create a circular economy where materials and resources are reused, recycled and repurposed. Now we are working closely with clients to go further – to reverse over consumption, to reduce the need to exploit the planet, and to close the loop. We are driven by the power of unwasted.
