Our history

The Brundtland Consultancy team originally started out at EcoSecurities, a world leading company in originating, implementing and commercialising carbon credits. EcoSecurities was acquired by JP Morgan in 2009, and in 2010 the South African operations spun-off as EcoMetrix Africa, maintaining its leading position in carbon project development and finance management. In 2022, EcoMetrix Africa was rebranded as Brundtland, a sustainability consultancy company, to reflect the company’s growth over the last two decades and to reaffirm our continued commitment and dedication to providing clients with the broader, holistic sustainability services we now offer.

The Brundtland Story

The modern concept of sustainable development – and how it could be achieved – was first introduced in the 1987 Brundtland Report, also called Our Common Future. The report was published by the Brundtland Commission, a sub organisation of the United Nations, which was established to help direct the nations of the world towards the goal of sustainable development. The commission was chaired by Gro Harlem Brundtland, who served as the 29th prime minister of Norway.

Brundtland reminds us not only of our mission and vision as aligned to that in the Brundtland Report, but also to Gro Harlem Brundtland, as one of The Elders. This group of independent global leaders was founded by former president Nelson Mandela in 2007 and includes Gro Harlem Brundtland, South Africa’s Graca Machel and the late Desmond Tutu, as well as other key global thought leaders including Ban Ki-moon, Mary Robinson and the late Kofi Annan.

At Brundtland Consultancy we embrace the collective wisdom of The Elders, who all worked together for peace, justice and human rights, with a focus on a sustainable development pathway for South Africa, climate justice and urgent action on the climate crisis to ensure a just transition to a low carbon economy.
