At Aither, a Ricardo company, we believe in the value of making better decisions.

To us, making better decisions is central to addressing the world’s most significant issues.

Natural systems are increasingly strained and under threat, creating challenges in water, infrastructure, cities, agriculture and the environment.

The future is uncertain and the stakes are high. Making better decisions can generate enormous benefits and avoid costly and irreversible mistakes.

Our ambition is to make a difference for the better, enabling business and society to realise lasting opportunity and change.

Working with leaders in government and business across multiple countries, we navigate complexity by providing decision makers with clear, evidence-based analysis, insights and advice.

Combining economics, policy, and strategy our advisors help decision-makers to clarify their objectives, address the right problems and opportunities, and continuously improve.

Experienced, committed and well-grounded in the areas in which we work, we are trusted advisers to leaders making tangible progress towards outcomes that matter.

We work with people who share our ambition to find a better way, and our belief that if something’s worth doing, it’s worth doing well.

Decision making that’s clear, informed and confident. That’s what better means to us.

We do our best work when we leverage diverse skills and backgrounds. This only works if everyone feels they belong.

We learn through challenge.

We believe that the best opportunities to learn are through doing. We create opportunities to grow and to learn from mistakes. Feedback isn’t put on the back burner. It’s given and received with respect and intent.

We care for one another.

We invest the time and energy to understand one another. We care about our lives outside of work. We support each other in the way each person needs.
