About us

Founded in 1979, Projekt-Consult has gained a unique experience in consulting for responsible mining and sourcing of minerals. We have in-depth knowledge of the upstream extractives supply chain, focusing on people and countries involved in mining.

In our projects and studies, we work with stakeholders in government, in the private sector, with NGOs and citizens’ groups on the strategic and technical implementation of responsible mineral supply chains. This includes advice on mineral governance, policies, due diligence approaches, minerals risk assessments, technical solutions and capacity building.

Among our clients are leading development agencies, ministries, and public clients, such as the Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources (BGR), German International Cooperation (GIZ), or bilateral and multilateral donor institutions, such as the World Bank, Swiss SDC and SECO, DFID, United Nations, European Commission, and regional development banks.
