Dual Citizen advises clients on how to leverage data analytics and strategic communications to further their growth and development agendas. They work with government ministries, international organizations and private firms on consulting assignments and by sub-contracting with strategic partners.
To support this work, they publish the Global Green Economy Index™ (GGEI), measuring the performance of 80 countries and 50 cities in the green economy and how experts assess that performance. Insights and data from the GGEI inform policymakers and private clients with intelligence to advance their reputation and performance in the green economy.
Their purpose is to improve the value of data and communications as tools for promoting international development and green growth.
Dual Citizen was founded in 2010 amidst a global economy in turmoil. Besides the financial crisis, digital technologies continued to disrupt information flows while data were proliferating more rapidly than ever. Governments were allocating money and attention to new models of "green growth" that aimed to decouple economic growth from increases in carbon emissions. People, knowledge and data were moving faster than ever in real-time, across borders and more independently from the usual intermediaries of government or the mainstream media.
