What separates the sustainability leaders from the also-rans? In simple terms, they put sustainable practices at the heart of their business model. This results in lower risks, new revenue streams, better customer relationships and improved
For the leaders, sustainability isn’t a trivial sideline; instead, it’s integral to all their business decisions and the way they create value.
A solid sustainability strategy gives you a framework for managing your most significant social, environmental and broader economic issues. It sets out your vision, principles and policies and defines your approach to governance, stakeholder engagement and reporting.
More broadly, your strategy drives enthusiasm, awareness and alignment across your organisation – and ultimately helps make sustainability profitable.
How we help you
The sustainability journey
When we work with you on strategy, we start by helping you identify and manage your material issues. We do this by calling on our unique insight into the full range of CR and sustainability issues across industries worldwide. We also work closely with your managers and external stakeholders. This pivotal process typically culminates in the drawing up of a Materiality Matrix that maps sustainability issues onto business objectives, and helps you pinpoint your strategic priorities.
We then help you align your organisation with your sustainability approach – for example, by:
- putting in place management systems for each of your material issues
- setting objectives and targets for the organisation and for individual staff
- designing and delivering training and communication.
This enables you to manage the risks you face and make the most of the opportunities that sustainability presents to develop new services that meet emerging social or environmental needs. In that way, your sustainability strategy creates value for the organisation and the wider world. And, as a direct result, sustainability becomes an authentic part of your brand.
