Josh Dowse

Consulting Partner


Josh specialises in helping clients and experts identify and articulate just what they want to say, particularly for a more sustainable economy.

Over the past 30 years, he has become one of Australia’s most trusted thought partners and communicators on energy, sustainability, ESG and climate change. He has facilitated and ghosted dozens of corporate and private equity sustainability strategies, investment plans from Bush Heritage to Macquarie Group, the NSW Advanced Energy Strategy, AEMO’s Integrated Systems Plan, the Australian National Outlook and the Business Roundtable Report on Climate Change, and delivered papers for CSIRO, the Stern Review, the Australian Solar Institute and ACF.

Josh has been a freelance ‘help’ for 20 years, after being a solicitor with Minter Ellison, a publisher with Allen & Unwin, an editor of the McKinsey Quarterly and a communication consultant with McKinsey & Company.

He has an Honours degree in History, an LLB and a Masters in Environmental Law and Economics, and learned as much as a father of four, a director of a disability NGO and a longtime coach and president of a junior rugby club.
