Arthur D. Little: Climate change creating competitive opportunities now

New report warns that companies must rethink their business models to survive an uncertain future

A new report by Arthur D. Little urges businesses across all sectors to consider the cost of carbon when planning for long-term growth, or risk losing out to sustainability-savvy competitors and new emerging market players.  In "Ensuring survival: Business models in a low carbon world," the consultancy's Energy and Sustainability practices argue that in 2009, the carbon agenda will leave no business untouched, through multiple direct and indirect routes - from brand recognition, to the cost-base, to investors' perceptions of value.

Smart reactions in the crisis

Arthur D. Little explains how the petrochemicals industry can recover from the "overpayment" trend and return to sustainable growth post-recession

The boom and associated bubble that drove petrochemical prices to an all-time high in 2008 does not necessarily spell doom for the industry's post-recession performance, according to a report launched today by global management consultancy Arthur D. Little. In "Smart reactions in the crisis," the consultancy's Chemicals practice analyses the credit crunch's impact on the chemical industry's longer term growth plans, arguing that businesses must re-evaluate their corporate structure based on the understanding that for many market segments, post-recession business conditions will have permanently changed.

Integrity and Innovation drive value in public policy engagement

With sustainability informing corporate and government agendas, Arthur D. Little highlights how a balanced policy engagement strategy contributes positively to the development process while also generating business value

What do carbon budgets, access to water, and supply chain labour conditions have in common?  They are all fast moving areas of public policy development, and according to a new report by Arthur D, Little, areas where businesses can create value by contributing to the public debate. Ahead of December's United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, Arthur D. Little’s new report explains that as new channels open up for businesses to influence policy – locally, nationally, and globally – corporate engagement in the policy process is no easy feat.  Illustrated using case studies from clothing retailer Levi Strauss & Co. and health and hygiene products manufacturer Kimberly-Clark, the report likens sound corporate engagement to a balancing act: businesses need an approach that captures the opportunities associated with public policy engagement but also protects company integrity by working collaboratively and transparently.  [...]

New report from Arthur D. Little urges financial services companies to consider why now is the time to move into the low-income insurance market

The global truck and bus industry will experience market and technology challenges after today’s financial crisis

Latest report from ADL predicts that mastering new powertrain technologies will be critical within the rapidly evolving commercial vehicle market

Arthur D Little: Online gambling – perspectives on the European games of a chance market

Huge growth potential for established telcos 

An increasing number of European countries are putting aside their past reticence and preparing for a controlled opening of their markets to online gambling. The ever increasing number of surfers in countries where there is no online gambling are taking advantage of the offers of foreign websites. This is causing some countries to lose millions in taxes, whilst at the same time undermining the state's gambling monopoly. According to specialists at management consultancy Arthur D. Little, the market will increase over the next three years from the current €5 to a total of 8 billion. “Recently established telecom providers with their fixed client base are opening up interesting perspectives - not only for the generation of new turnover and income in a largely saturated market, but also to position themselves amongst the competition,” says Klaus von den Hoff, Director of Arthur D. Little's Telecoms, Information, Media and Entertainment (TIME) Practice. In co-operation with leading European companies in the telecommunications sector, the consulting teams at Arthur D. Little have worked out the essential factors for a successful market entrance. They have identified three crucial parameters for success: range of game offering, positioning in the value-added chain and overcoming some key challenges.  [...]
