Regulation, market forces, and resource insecurity are signalling that business and organizations must accelerate the introduction of circular practices into their operations. We are passionate about assisting organizations learn about the benefits of transition to more circular practices.
We can work with your government, industry organization and business to help identify circularity opportunities and gaps, and then develop strategies to help you participate in a circular economy.
Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) management and assurance are now table stakes for industry. It is critical to understand how this huge topic applies to you and how to identify what is material to your organization and your stakeholders. Should you be focused on greenhouse gas emissions? Biodiversity? Water scarcity? Diversity and inclusion?
We can help with materiality assessments, measurement, gap analysis, sorting out which of the many standards and frameworks to subscribe to, and determine the most suitable way to disclose your performance to the people who matter.
The procurement function has the potential to be one of the biggest sustainability success stories in an organization. Sometimes it takes very small changes to internal policies, evaluation criteria, vendor engagement, or communication with other organizational functions to see improved sustainability performance.
Focusing on sustainable procurement and the overall strength of your supply chain can also help you materially reduce future supply chain shocks. We can lead or support these efforts.
Compliance & Conformance
Ensuring compliance to legal requirements, as well as voluntary standards, can be complicated. We can assess your organization’s environmental and sustainability performance, or serve as your internal audit function, to help you understand where your compliance risks exist.
We can also help you navigate the complexity of regulatory frameworks and sustainability standards, and then develop strategies to ensure ongoing conformance.
GreenTech / CleanTech
While CleanTech and GreenTech funding and investment continues to rise, so too do expectations. These companies and innovations are viewed as the vanguard of industry. Companies and service providers in this space must be able to demonstrate that a life-cycle perspective is being used and that they have the right data to prove that their technology is solving one of the many environmental crises we face.
These organizations are also under increased scrutiny by communities to prove themselves, their production impacts, and responses before engaging in feasibility studies and beta tests. We can help you check all these boxes early on in your development process, saving you time and money later.
Despite how prevalent climate change and greenhouse gas (GHG) language is it can still be difficult to understand how a single organization or sector can respond to really affect change, while still ensuring viability. We can help you identify what to really focus on, get your staff and members up to date on the latest information, figure out how to measure performance and assist in overlaying GHG and climate change issues with your organizational strategy.
