What we do

We help our clients make their operations, business model and strategies sustainable for planet, people and the business community. This establishes the basis for sustainable, long-term success for all stakeholders.

Typically, this starts with an impact analysis and various workshops to establish consensus around sustainability as a business driver.

At the end, we use our network and decades of experience working with the United Nations and non-profit organizations to build long-lasting and mutually beneficial partnerships that advance the interest of your business, customers, shareholders, regulators and the planet.

Electric and hybrid products, robust supply chains, CO2-neutral production and innovative mobility concepts are as much of a challenge to the industry as the financial-return demands expected by shareholders and investors.   But both the environmental and fiscal goals will only be met if the automotive industry drives towards sustainability.

Customers, regulators, investors and employees demand fair finance, inclusive access, diversity and green financial products. This can be the basis of a lasting competitive advantage. Crucially, it’s a lot better for the planet too.

 

The most sustainable company in the world is an energy producer. Regulators and customers demand not only renewable and affordable energy, but also sustainable and regenerative management approaches from producers.

Meeting these challenges makes sense and lowers the cost of capital, as well as the costs to the climate.

It is just as challenging, as it is a demanded by customers, investors and regulators. Customers increasingly expect their products to be sustainable and caring. Fortunately, retailers can provide more transparency and accountability, securing their competitiveness.

The sector produces about 40% of all carbon emissions, which not only means heightened responsibility for manufacturers, but also a significant opportunity to secure customer loyalty and establish a lasting competitive advantage.

Where chemical producers committed to a circular economy and sustainability in their operations and strategy, they have been rewarded with increased stock performance, and significant risk and cost reductions.

Let’s talk about it. You can get in touch with us here.



Strategy

Sustainability used to be a “nice to have” add-on in business. But it always seemed too expensive, too political and too difficult to implement.

Today, sustainability is central to successful businesses. Regulators, investors, customers and employees demand visible, accountable and effective business models that take care of the natural world, communities and people as equal stakeholders to company shareholders. Ignoring this has become a major business risk.

Businesses that put sustainability at the core of their strategies and operations reduce costs and risk, gain substantial customer loyalty, develop sustainable competitive advantages, and are favored by lenders and investors.

Most business leaders we meet are earnest and open about their commitment to protect people, planet and profits. However, many need expertise and assistance in overcoming internal barriers and developing convincing strategies.

This need not be too expensive. We work with business to develop sustainability strategies that support the business strategy, each one mutually reinforcing the other. At the end of the process, there will not be a sustainability strategy and a business strategy; there will simply be a better strategy for sustainable business, planet and people.

It is beyond doubt that if we continue the way we have, we will lose the foundations of life on Earth. Long before that, we will lose customers, market share and our supply chains and, critically, our self-respect because we failed to act.

Corporate social responsibility

What matters? Not all CSR topics and themes are equally relevant to each company.

As with any strategy, we first must decide what matters by deciding in which areas a business can most reduce the harm it causes and do the most good. It makes no sense to invest time and money into areas that do not bring the highest possible impact return. While sustainability is certainly a long-term endeavour, we should start where it matters most.

During this process, we can make introductions to and build lasting relationships with NGOs and government agencies – to do good together.

About us

We started advising humanitarian, environmental and development non-profit organizations in 2011. We build efficient business operating systems in difficult environments, including conflict regions. Today, we work with over 150 charities and governmental agencies. We work directly with the United Nations on the development and continued evolution of the Sustainable Development Goals.

This, coupled with our extensive expertise in business operations and strategies, was increasingly seen as of value to businesses who were serious about sustainability. After many years of working with mid-sized, owner-managed business and corporates in the USA, Germany, UK and Scandinavia, we officially launched our sustainability services.
