Intelligence, strategy
and execution, delivered.


At last, a more purposeful partnership between management and brand consulting.


Who are we?


Today’s business models are failing to meet expectations — particularly those of future generations.

Firstwater is the merger between Voluntas MEA, former subsidiary of Voluntas Group in Copenhagen, and 85Fifteen, an award-winning brand transformation consultancy in the Middle East.

As one team, we work with governments, institutions, businesses and investors to optimise performance, shareholder returns, as well as environmental and societal impacts.

Combining data science with sophisticated analytics, purpose-led strategy with brand-driven execution we accelerate change — enabling clients to close the ideal-reality gap to secure more holistic and more meaningful outcomes.

Together, we’re the
value creation company.


Who have
we worked with?


From countries, governments and NGOs to Global Fortune 500s, Blue-chips and conscientious start-ups, too.


What do we
think matters?


Intelligence, first.

All bases covered — from the latest in data analytics, purpose and sustainability, to compelling research from around the world.
