what we do

Consulting and Thought Partnership,

Interim Executive Appointments and Board & CEO Advisory

Strategy &

Integration

We partner with businesses who are starting on their sustainability or transformation journey, through to established businesses who are seeking to evolve and innovate on existing strategies or programs.

 

We conduct strategic reviews, develop frameworks and engagement plans, through to helping you understand the problem (or problems) you’re trying to address through research and stakeholder input.

 

Leading organisations are looking beyond their own direct organisational footprint and looking across value and supply chains to create shared value and impact.

 

We can help you map your impacts, opportunities and potential partnerships and work with you to develop a robust action plans. 

 

 

Strategic

Communication

Critical to any change, transformation or business initiative is understanding and engaging your stakeholders and effective communication.

 

Planning what to communicate, to whom and when, along with thinking through the best delivery method has never been more important with declining trust in business.

 

We are skilled at translating environmental and social issues for different audiences inside and outside your organisation. We can help you map your stakeholders and develop your engagement strategy.

 

We’re well connected across industries, sectors and geographies and can help you develop your story, positioning and messaging, and coach your leaders or spokespeople on effective delivery.

Capability
& Culture

Culture eats strategy for breakfast. Ensuring your organisation – from the board to front line employees – has the right knowledge, skills and mindsets on environmental and social issues relevant to your business is critical to future success.

 

Environmental and social issues are frequently seen as complex. People are less likely to champion, act or innovate on things they don’t fully understand.

 

We are skilled at translating environmental and social issues for different audiences inside and outside your organisation to help drive change and transformation.

 

We’re experienced in developing training, engagement and communication programs.

 

 

Innovation
& Circularity

Today’s savvy companies are looking at social and environmental threats as opportunities for innovation, be it business model innovation, new products, services, partnerships or processes.

 

We can help develop transition plans to move to more circular business models, including mapping your value chain, identification and evaluation of strategic partnerships, stakeholders and technology.

 

We’re well connected across industries, sectors and geographies and can help you connect the dots to create change and innovate for future success.

 

Brands of

Purpose

For brands to prosper, they must stand for more than their functionality or service offering. Today’s brands and businesses must have a defined societal purpose. However, they have to walk-the-walk and talk-the-talk.

 

We can help you develop your brand or businesses societal purpose and articulate the value you hope to create.

 

However, actions speak louder than words. We have developed and successfully scaled brand-led social and environmental programs with a range of partners and NGOs that have helped to solve environmental and social issues such as sustainable forestry, seafood, sanitation, health and empowerment of women and girls.

 

Programs we have developed have been loved by customers and consumers (and a range of other stakeholder) and have delivered significant business and brand benefits.

 

We can help you navigate the terrain from thinking through risks and opportunities, to engaging and coordinating partners, developing your narrative and embedding it into your brand architecture and strategy.

 

We can also advise on measuring impact and how to authentically communicate it.

Reporting
& Impact

Stakeholders are demanding transparency, but is your current reporting regime creating value? Do you know if you’re having a positive social or environmental impact?

 

We can advise on social impact creation, help you develop your theory of change, design and measure your program.

 

Sometimes organisations find themselves reporting for reporting sake. Are you clear on why you’re reporting and who the key target audience is?

 

We can help you evaluate your reporting and define “The Why”. We can also advise on ways to better leverage the information shared and tailor it for different audiences.
