Where can your organization go in this rapidly changing world? What risks and opportunities do the next 10, 20 or even 50 years bring us? We support organizations on their journey to figure out clear goals, visions, and strategy towards leading sustainability performance.
Organizations face an increasing range of sustainability trends and movements. These include carbon emission reduction policies, the SDGs of the UN, the circular economy, biobased materials, climate adaptation, the plastic soup, fair-trade, biodiversity concerns, and so on. How do you navigate this space as an organization? Where does it affect your organization, how can you use this strategically, and what is the best next step to take? And the one after that?
Working together, we develop a clear vision and strategy with you and your team. We navigate these questions using the Symbiosis in Development (SiD) framework that ensures a holistic and systemic perspective. We engage you with stakeholders and connect you in co-creation sessions with experts to build a strategy and vision, using systems analysis, science, business insight, and design thinking. Make use of our two decades of experience working with parties such as IKEA, Heineken, Ahold, IFC, real-estate developers, and a wide range of policy makers and NGOs.
Start with the right team
Sustainability isn't something you can entirely outsource. It needs to be adopted into the minds and hearts of key people in the organization to succeed. Internally, there needs to be a team that understands, and works on the sustainability strategy from within. We support setting up a team, training the team, and gearing it up with an action plan to get started, building clear goals, and a vision. From these, we support the creation of a sustainability strategy, and then help to implement.
Goals and Vision
Starting with inspiring examples for successful cases from around the world, we start mapping the goals and perspectives of your organization. We challenge you to expand your perspective of what is possible, while fact-checking with our research team to stay realistic. By using systems-thinking and innovative road mapping we help you pinpoint where your company, organization, or industry will be in 10, 20, or even 50 years from now, and what you need to do in order to get to your desired sustainability goals. We investigate what scenarios are available to you, and what they'll look like. We support visions with movies, illustrations, inspiring books, talks, and events.
To develop our strategies, we use the Symbiosis in Development (SiD) framework. We include social, environmental and business intelligence to create roadmaps for resilient, socially just, and circular solutions. This includes development trajectories of supply chain partners, customers, and relevant policy organizations. From this we work with you to develop a long-term strategic vision with short term action plans that help to guide your actions today. We can then help you, step by step, in efficient execution and implementation, impact assessment, communication, and reporting.
