Thought Leadership

What you need.

Do you want to position yourself in terms of a topic or are you aiming for thought leadership in your field? You want to send strong signals to your stakeholders – including policy makers.

What we offer.

Opinion leadership needs facts. This is something we can support your company or your association with. We are well connected and up to speed with what is currently being discussed in politics – on a federal and state level but also in the European Union. We analyse and quantify the consequences of major trends and political decisions – economically sound and to the point.

Our customers trust a strong brand. Whether it be choosing the right instruments to decarbonise industry, the impact of trade restrictions on individual sectors, or the importance of economic sectors as drivers of macroeconomic development: the connections are complex and the best solutions are not always obvious. We confront this complexity with model-based analysis and quantitative results.

An independent voice carries more weight in the public forum than a biased one. We work on behalf of energy companies, environmental organisations, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), as well as large companies.

Thought Leadership: A selection of our services


Qualitative and quantitative scenarios of future developments show the paths to which politics and the economy can react.

Analysis of policy instruments

We use model-based analysis to assess how different policy instruments affect the sectors under consideration or the economy as a whole.

From studies to communication

Our services include studies and short analyses, workshops, as well as supporting your public relations work.
