Assessing your impact

We assess business environmental and social impact using the most comprehensive sustainability assessment frameworks available, including the B-Impact Assessment, Future-Fit Business Benchmarks, and the Sustainable Development Goals.

Our assessment process will involve a number of meetings or workshops, depending on the size and complexity of your business. This can be done face to face or via video conference, depending on your location.

These assessment meetings are a critical step that will help you define a performance baseline across all areas of your business including governance, impact on the environment, the community, your workers and your customers. You can learn how assessing your impact fits within our 4-stage approach here.

 

Engaging your stakeholders

Creating an impactful company requires business leaders to define their mission as creating long-term value not only for shareholders, but also for customers, suppliers, employees, communities, the environment, and all other stakeholders.

 

Our 5-step framework for Stakeholder Engagement aligns with the global AA1000SE Standard. Using this framework, we help you design an engagement strategy that identifies your stakeholders and their key issues, establishes appropriate engagement methods, documents engagement outputs, develops action plans and communicates the outcomes and impact of your strategy.

Communicating and collaborating effectively with stakeholders is the foundation for coherent and sustainable impact management.

Designing Good Governance

We help you to design stakeholder-aligned governance that balances the competing objectives of all stakeholder groups to create shared benefits for all.

We review your current governance policies and practices to understand what you are already doing well and the areas that can be improved. We perform a Materiality Analysis to understand and prioritise the key risks in your business and sector. We help you set social and environmental KPIs, create internal controls and ensure that you have implemented all necessary ethics policies and practices into your company.

We help you to ensure that your business's social and environmental performance is a part of the decision-making process over time, regardless of company ownership.
