Sustainable Development Goals

The United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are universal goals focused on securing a better future for everyone.

We can help to tell the story of how your business is contributing to the SDGs and paving the way towards a brighter and more prosperous and sustainable future for all people and our planet.

Professional Services

We turn concepts into concrete, results-oriented projects through careful guidance and management through all phases of the project cycle to help our clients achieve the results they seek. 

We help multilateral organizations and non-governmental actors developing policy frameworks and reports.

CNS also provides business support services focused on communications, writing and editing. 


Our projects strengthen human rights and the rule of law, support the establishment of ethical supply chains and stimulate more meaningful and practical engagement with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Our extensive work with the UN, I-NGOs and the private sector, has contributed to our breadth of knowledge and deep insight.

This includes support for UN Development System reform in the context of the 2030 Agenda, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and coordination of development initiatives through the UN System at country-level.

Our experience with I-NGOs ranges from investigations and project development to the coordination of reporting and publications.

Through projects with private sector clients, we also have strong experience leading sector and industry-relevant interventions based on in-depth field and community engagement.


Our work supports the most vulnerable and disenfranchised communities by addressing issues like human and labor rights and climate and environmental justice. 

We are a team of professional consultants whose experience spans six continents (Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, North and South America) and more than 50 countries, giving us clear insight into the unique opportunities and challenges in each region.

We prioritize results and impact through comprehensive, in-depth research and analyses. Our approach is to engage with local communities, rights holders and duty bearers to identify sustainable solutions based on facts on the ground.

We start by carefully listening to our client’s objectives, needs and priorities. We seek to identify opportunities to build efficiency in addition to quality analyses and solutions. At each step in the process, we tailor innovative solutions, while integrating global best practices and strategic thinking to deliver project impact and results.
