Evolvia - green & lean consulting
Evolvia is a collective of students that challenge the status quo of traditional management consulting.
We developed a new consulting approach that we call "lean & green."It is a combination of SDG-focused management practices and the lean startup approach that many tech-startups use to stay agile and innovative. By doing so,we save a lot of working time and costs. We want to have a positive impact while making consulting fun again!
Since its inception during the Covid-19 lockdown this spring, Evolvia has successfully been working on three projects:
1) The Spoontainable Story: We collaborated with a social enterprise producing edible alternatives to plastic cutlery out of foodwaste. In the fight against so-called 'bioplastics' - which can barely be recycled on the Iberian Peninsula - Evolvia created a holistic business development strategy for Spoontainable's market entry in Spain and Portugal.
2) The OOMAY Story: Evolvia teamed up with a social startup of two Copenhagen Business School Alumni that produces sustainable textile products, like bed linen based on eucalyptus. "Making returns in E-commerce green and lean" was the challenge that was passed onto the Evolvia team because a high return rate is one of the largest environmental issues in e-commerce. Evolvia developed an innovative returns strategy allowing to handle returned items in a responsible manner and reduce the return rate to a minimum.
3) The Dar a Måo Story: We are currently collaborating with a Portuguese NGO that focuses on the social inclusion of imprisoned women in the area of Lisbon. To increase their impact, we recruited a marketing intern for the NGO and are working collaboratively on a new communications strategy to raise awareness and improve the attractiveness for potential donors.
