We enhance organizations’ strategies to include the adaptive systems and lifecycle risks and opportunities that are often missed. We assess uncertainties related to innovative technology, resilience and long-term asset sustainability. Our strategies are designed to communicate effectively and promote economic development.
Technology Evaluation & Adoption
3COTECH helps our clients evaluate and adopt transformative technologies to optimize capital and resources and reduce carbon footprint. We evaluated innovative combinations of existing and new technologies geared to reducing emissions and transitioning to zero- and near-zero-emission equipment and fleets.
Risk Assessment, Analysis & Mitigation
When identifying risks, managers typically focus on legal, compliance, and technical issues. However, non-technical risks (political or stakeholder-related) may cause significant budget overruns and project delays. Our collaborative and proactive approach helps clients foresee the intended and unintended consequences of their initiatives.
Considerations of emission-reducing and zero-emission equipment or automation require a long-term energy strategy. We help our clients assess existing conditions and future energy requirements, as well as navigate the regulatory, technological and sustainable investment landscape.
Environmental concerns, climate change, and access to capital for infrastructure are among critical drivers for public policy. We help our clients incorporate sustainable practices throughout the project lifecycles to not only reduce carbon footprint and use resources responsibly but also engage stakeholders and leverage innovation.
Strategy Implementation Support
A strategy is complex. We find that success or failure of the strategy depends on the way leaders at all organizational levels integrate strategic thinking into day-to-day operations. We help our clients identify gaps and uncertainties, apply whole-systems thinking, and establish a clear understanding of the challenges and their implications.
We help our public and private sector clients build and maintain strategic relationships at the intersection of energy, goods movement, and global trade. As part of planning and strategy development, we identify key stakeholders, review their specific drivers, and formulate a carefully crafted communication plan.
Successful collaboration requires early involvement of key parties. We provide communication and outreach on our clients’ behalf to achieve stakeholder consensus and ensure engagement. We advise diverse interest groups on the best strategy to comply with regulatory requirements, attain project goals, and enhance economic benefits.
Government and Public Relations
3COTECH combines technical and industry-specific expertise with public affairs through a strategic approach to provide a unique communication capability. We build a bridge between business and government for clients operating in energy, transportation, and international trade.
Goods movement connects people and goods and is essential to our economy and everyday life. It must be efficient to make the best use of our transportation system, preserve the environment, and reduce energy use, while keeping up with the increasing demand for goods.
The interaction and integration of people, companies, and governments is easier and faster than ever before. Expanding globalization and urbanization, intensified by technology, allows for accelerated exchange of goods, services and capital across international borders.
Many infrastructure and industrial facilities operate as complex adaptive systems where industrial, social, and sustainability considerations are closely linked. Sustainability shouldn’t be limited to environmental aspects only. Resilient communities take systemic approach.
