LGI – the sustainable innovation accelerator

Our vision lies in the belief that the major transformations required for addressing global sustainability challenges will require positive and impactful innovation. The 21st century world has grown in complexity as never before. Closed and linear innovation has been replaced by open, multi-sided, data-frenzied, fast-tracked and ever-changing processes. Striving in this world, or simply adapting to survive the disruptions, requires tremendous agility. Businesses, governments, researchers and non-profits all seek solutions to new challenges, within the planet’s finite resources.

In this context, we believe our mission lies in our role as an enabler of sustainable innovation, by working with our clients and partners on their research, innovation and business in sectors of key importance for global sustainable development.

We refer our actions to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, specifically SDGs #6 (water & sanitation), 7 (energy), 9 (industrial innovation), 11 (sustainable territories), 12 (circular economy), 13 (climate) and 14-15 (ecosystems). This is supported by our active involvement on innovation enablers.
