Foresight

Foresight

Foresight is crucial for formulating corporate strategy and robust governmental policies that anticipate risks and opportunities. However, strategic foresight on natural resources is too little, too scattered or well hidden. We can bring together the best available foresight on critical raw materials and use innovative methods to analyze the implications for your business or for governmental policy goals.


The complex dynamics of a globalized world, the high rate of technological break-through, and changes in the economic and political world order create a high level of uncertainty for governments and businesses. Technological developments have a significant impact on the supply and demand of resources. Foresight analysis helps to anticipate developments that shape the future supply and demand of resources. As such, it can help governments and businesses to develop resilience against future shocks and uncertainties.
