Planning Green Futures Ltd is a multi-disciplinary consultancy offering a wide range of skills and services in environmental assessment, natural resources planning, governance and institutional reform and social and community welfare enhancement. The Practice was initially formed in 2009 and was formally constituted as a registered company in the United Kingdom in 2016, although its activities are world-wide.
Planning Green Futures Ltd is a new style of planning practice, since its main objective is to build environmental capacity by training local professionals in Africa, although it also works in Europe and Asia. Its primary role is to assist Government Ministries and Agencies, District Councils, Civil Society and International Partners to introduce state of the art policies, plans and programmes for improving livelihoods and reducing poverty. All projects are designed to ensure environmental enhancement, sustainable use of natural resources and self-help within local communities.
While the primary focus lies in providing services to the public sector, PGF Ltd also supports investors and development companies that have adopted a positive commitment towards sustainable development.
PGF Ltd guards its objectivity and independence carefully. It will only take on assignments that are in the National Interest of countries in which it works.
