Connecting China with the World – Building bridges through Sustainability 

The ambitious Sustainable Development Goals by the UN can only be realized globally. Within the Dr2 Network, it is our strong belief that establishing strong connections lies at the foundation of this. Building bridges through mutual understanding and international cooperation.

China will have an important role in creating a more sustainable future globally because of its sheer size in terms of population, production, consumption, energy use, carbon footprint, etc. Global success will depend significantly on successes achieved in China and working with China internationally.

Dr2 Consultants has extensive experience in building networks and creating opportunities in this “New Economy”. Our clients range from multinational companies to SMEs, to governments and associations. From organizing your exploration trip, finding partners, advising on rules and regulations, to managing stakeholder relations, our team takes care of your interests overseas.


As your local team on the ground, we can be your eyes and ears in the Chinese market. We can monitor and experience the situation first hand and facilitate a ‘soft-landing’.

Your needs, a clearly defined strategy, and an eye for tangible results together form the key elements of our approach. We take our clients by the hand and find opportunities in a complex set of rules and regulations and ever-changing local market circumstances.

Dr2 Consultants Shanghai facilitates sustainable business with China through results-driven advisory. Our local team in Shanghai offers guidance and support to clients that want to conquer the Chinese market, as well as to Chinese companies looking to expand activities outside their domestic market.
