If, you are a Corporate House, Government Department, National or International Funding Agency and are looking for causes and NGO to support, ACE brings a wide spectrum of services to provide end-to-end solutions for inclusive growth initiatives. We can help you in the following areas:

As part of the process, we facilitate consultations with different stakeholders. This process is carried out by mapping of business needs with social needs through:

Social & Environmental Risk Management

In business, risks lurk at every turn: safety of the product that threatens the viability of your products or services, community unrest that disrupt the plant production, adverse trends in political scenarios, etc. Accepting and managing these challenges/risks is what causes companies to grow, to outsmart their competitors, to bring a new product to market, and, most importantly, to produce profit. Risk assessment and management is an important component of a progressive company’s strategic plan.

ACE provides solutions to the company for reducing these risks that affect their business adversely with focus on community empowerment and capacity building of the human resource of the company.
