Our strategy for responsible business always utilises win-win options

 

To truly maximise returns, CR must be fully integrated into business strategies, processes and cultures. The Key pillars in developing sustainability strategies include:

  • Benchmark and Assessment - Baseline gap analysis with examples of leading non-financial risk, global indicators, mapping of quantitative and qualitative data, and policy development.
  • Stakeholder Engagement - Identification and prioritisation through desk research, surveys, focus groups, and interviews.
  • Framework - Developing materiality matrices, visions, recommendations on targets, KPIs, and milestones across the marketplace, environment, community and workplace.
  • CommunicationsBuilding overall communications strategies for sustainability.
  • Monitoring and EvaluationA compendium of performance measures including tracking of targets, outputs, and outcome.
 

We are experts in understanding and analysing the issues that matter

 

Our approach is based upon international best practice experience, information gathering, and analyses. As part of the assessment, we will gather data, interview key employees and stakeholders, perform SWOT and gap analyses of current sustainability efforts, and provide both company-wide and department-specific recommendations to help move forward on your corporate sustainability journey.

 

 

We advise clients in all aspects of environmental sustainability including carbon, water, supply chain standards, and environmental management systems

 

Some of our work includes:

  • Benchmarking, identifying, and prioritising environmental impacts, clients’ impacts, and assisting them in setting objectives and KPIs
  • Implementing environmental management systems and helping to embed these with the right processes and training to track carbon footprint, recycling, and waste
  • Mapping supply chains to identify potential risks and opportunities, including KPIs to track supply chain performance
  • Communicating and reporting impacts to relevant stakeholders.
 

We believe in strong and memorable community programs

 

Fundamentals are important. We assist companies that are setting up corporate foundations through regulatory and governance issues. We also structure strategies and thematic approaches.

We further work closely with companies to improve or develop community programmes by decoding the community value chain across the organisation. Some of our work includes developing strategy maps, thematic approaches, governance structures, and accountabilities as well as developing community engagement matrices. We also assist in selecting NGO partners and setting up performance measures and targets.

 

We understand the 'language' of sustainability

 

Many companies struggle to navigate around the CR minefield (Corporate Responsibility? Corporate Accountability? CSR? Governance? Sustainable Development?). There is a fine balance that can tilt good communications as an authentic narrative or  a ‘greenwash’.

For us, the communications in sustainability should not just support and drive corporate responsibility initiatives but should also be targeted with impact measurements to ensure that outcomes are achieved.

We help companies develop effective communications for stakeholders in the area of:

  • Sustainable communications strategy
  • Sustainability branding and marketing
  • Digital media, creative design and productions
  • Consumer publications
  • Internal communications
 

We are researchers at heart, with a heart to share

 

We are happy to help clients with bespoke research engagements, whether company-specific or sector-wide. Our research raises awareness, improves responsiveness and is often the starting point for change in direction. We also run various training programmes both in-house and for the public. Some of our programmes include:

  • Introduction to Sustainability Workshop
  • Community Investment and Stakeholder Workshop
  • Advanced Sustainability 2 — Implementation Workshop
  • Total CR Communications Workshop
 

We are well-versed with various global standards in reporting

 

The development and increasing complexity of approaches to reporting such as the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) has raised both the expectations of stakeholders for materiality, transparency, and completeness through reporting. We help companies develop best practice in reporting by using clear and simple checklists and providing guidance.

We support new reporters in starting their sustainability journey and advise on how to respond to the increasing demands of reporting initiatives and stakeholder concerns. We also work with existing reporters by pushing their boundaries and getting them to up the ante in their reporting. Our work is built upon experience advising a number of leading companies. We provide clear, business-relevant guidance and advice for CR reporting — in a way that can be heard and understood by stakeholders.

 

Sustainability Reporting Guidance

Every client needs a different level of support depending on the resources they have available. We can support you at any or all of the stages below by providing strategic advice or getting involved in detail, including writing and project managing across the reporting value chain.

Our work is to develop and demystify critical aspects of reporting such as materiality identification, stakeholder issue mapping, and specifying third party assurance. Some areas that we work in:

  • Report Mapping: Prioritisation and content development
  • Report Framework: Based on the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Framework and ISO26000
  • Data Consolidation: Allocation of relevant staff, stakeholder interviews, consolidation and synthesis of relevant data
  • Draft Report: Draft report submission, GRI Index
  • Final Report: Edited and syndicated copy
