ENVIRONMENTAL COLLABORATION AND
Akordi Oy was founded in December 2013. We are the first Finnish organization offering neutral third-party services of negotiation, conflict management, and mediation for environmental and public policy issues. We also offer training and capacity building related to these.
Akordi means a chord consisting of several voices. In our view, conflict resolution is possible only when each stakeholder finds his or her own voice and is heard by others. Our job is to assist in this process. We do not aim for ‘unison’, in which everyone would think similarly, but rather in creating a space to explore various interests and concerns, and helping our clients find creative solutions to address them.
In complex multi-stakeholder negotiations the quality of the process directly impacts the quality of the outcome. We help our clients raise the quality of their collaborative processes, to achieve outcomes that can exceed expectations.
Our services are designed for public bodies, non-profits, corporations, councils, associations, and individuals. We abide by the ACR Standards of Practice and Ethical Principles.
