About IMSA
About IMSA

IMSA Amsterdam is an independent think tank, consultancy & research firm committed to the environment, sustainability and innovation. In close cooperation with our clients we are looking for new ways to achieve sustainable development. We explicitly choose position at the interface of business, government, science and the critical outside world. The experienced IMSA team consists of approximately 20 highly qualified people from diverse cultural backgrounds and disciplines. Our clients include trend-setting multi-nationals, governments, and service and social organizations. IMSA’s president, Wouter van Dieren, has been managing the firm for over 25 years now.

In its projects, IMSA Amsterdam strives to integrate societal goals with the company objectives of clients and partners. The link between vision, knowledge and cooperation with societal stakeholders is always key. IMSA’s knowledge covers a wide range of subjects, from environment, nature, energy, climate and resources to food, health, agriculture and corporate social responsibility. Our extensive experience and network enable us to be of service to every sector.

The IMSA projects are always aimed at tangible results. We do not just deliver a report that contains an advice; we assist our client in achieving support for this advice both within and without their organisation. Challenging our client or contract partner is a key element in our work. We help them to see trends and signals in society as opportunities, where others just see threats and risks. We understand better than anyone else how important social developments are and how the dynamics work between all who are somehow involved in a company. We help our clients to take advantage of social changes and to re-position their company before outside pressures become threats.  And we help to re-open deadlocked societal discussions, by identifying win-win solutions for all those involved.

We prefer to avoid walking the beaten paths. Breaking taboos is our specialty. When necessary, we develop new insights and instruments: daring and unorthodox.
