Welcome to Avanzi. Sustainability in Action

Avanzi was founded in 1997. Our mission has always been to become an independent and credible player in the field of sustainable development. To achieve our goal we put ethics at heart of our work, and this is why we have been able to build our reputation through our work with businesses, NGO, local governments and even the EU Commission.

Our aim is to promote sustainable innovation. Thanks to our network of European universities and research centres we can produce cutting edge reports to explain value drivers and to support the development of effective policies and processes.

We work in partnership with businesses and NGO to achieve better social and environmental performance by engaging with stakeholders and by challenging reputational risks and business opportunities. In this context we provide consulting services at both strategic and operational levels.

Avanzi is now also an incubator and a habitat. As an incubator we provide a full range of business support resources and services to selected start ups with high potential to impact social needs or challenge environmental issues.
The habitat is Avanzi’s new location in Milan, a place designed to inspire and realize new ideas. Located in a restored historical factory, it was once the home of the Italian-made cult design and technology brand Brionvega, It already hosts a community of qualified professionals and innovative start ups.
