shaping the future

strategy

make it your business

 

Commitment to sustainability only gets on a firm footing when it becomes integral to your overall strategic vision. This requires stepping beyond external standards, to determining what could be your unique contribution to shaping a better future for your business and your stakeholders. This is where sustainability moves away from being an obligation driven burden to a source of new opportunities.

Our role is to help you define that unique contribution. Then connect that vision with your day to day activity to make it happen.

Business case building 

making sense and making dollars       

Whereas the business case for compliance is often relatively straightforward, exploring the landscape of potential strategic opportunities requires a different conversation. By definition, the conversation needs to happen at the highest levels and therefore requires careful preparation. We can help you open and facilitate this conversation by building a compelling business case for change.  

Baselining  

taking stock 

Taking stock of where you are right now is an essential starting point for visioning the future. Setting a clear baseline as to how you are doing against recognised expectations of best practice helps you decide what actions are needed and how best to prioritise. A good baseline tells you where the potential risks and opportunities lie – from quick wins to longer-term returns. 

Strategy development  

visioning the future 

Strikingly, based on a recent UN survey, 97% of the top 500 global CEOs think that sustainability is important to the future success of their business. To turn sustainability into a genuine enabler of your future success requires a conversation at the highest level – it is a conversation we love hosting and facilitating. 

Action and implementation planning   

making it your own

At this stage of the journey, sustainability moves from being the job of sustainability specialists to being part of what everyone does. Embedding becomes the key – making the connection between your commitment and your day-to-day ways of going about your business. We help you translate your high-level commitments into practical actions that make sense on the ground.
