“70% of companies have placed sustainability permanently on their management agendas.”
How We Do It
Creating sustainable value must be approached in a strategic and systemic way. We don’t just help create sustainable strategies; the solutions also need to be sustainable when implemented. Each initiative is customized to meet the client’s needs by utilizing a framework that emphasizes three key elements:
Ingredients for Success i5
For initiatives to be as successful as possible, several key ingredients must be present. We call this our i5 model.
Top down strategies don’t work. We work with clients to identify and engage multiple stakeholders to generate creative ideas and build the buy-in needed to achieve success. Convening the right players taps into and builds on the collective capacity of the organization.
Sustainability must be integrated into the organization’s core strategies and practices to be most successful. It must become part of the fabric of the organization, woven throughout the system, strategy, structure and culture.
Change is imperative. Achieving the best outcomes requires dedication, perseverance and an investment of time and resources. Educating and engaging others is an important component for building this commitment.
Sustainability is a tremendous catalyst for innovation. We partner with clients to engage multiple stakeholders to find new solutions and promote a more innovative culture that provides ongoing benefits beyond sustainability.
Ideas aren't enough; they must also produce results. Initiatives are designed to be implemented in a way that not only achieve desired outcomes, but build organizational capabilities and help to shape the culture.
