NEF Consulting

NEF Consulting is the transition consultancy. Founded and owned by the New Economics Foundation (NEF), we help organisations in the journey towards a new sustainable economy through an understanding of their past, present and future.

We enable organisations to:

  • Develop an understanding of value for money that includes social and environmental outcomes alongside the economic costs and benefits.
  • Integrate social, economic and environmental measurement into their culture to support the long term sustainability of their activities and investments.
  • Prove the value and improve the effectiveness of what they do.
  • Understand and manage their impact on their own employees and on local and global communities.

We are experts in Social Return On Investment (SROI) analysis and on using wellbeing measurement in impact assessment.
