Integrating sustainability into long-term strategy is no longer just an option but is a business imperative. Businesses are increasingly under pressure to meet complex and rapidly evolving needs of investors, customers, regulators, employees, business partners, and communities in which they operate. And smaller businesses cannot afford to ignore these forces, particularly if their customers are larger organizations, who increasingly face regulations around the world demanding transparency of ESG performance in their supply chains (see our article What North American businesses must know about EU’s new ESG regulations). This rapidly changing world brings risks, but also many exciting opportunities to gain new market share and secure best talent, among others. Regardless of how far along you are in your sustainability journey, we will meet you where you are and help you in a cost-effective way.
Whether you're just starting out on your sustainability journey or are well on your way, we are passionate about getting your ESG message right. Guidelines, requirements and expectations on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) disclosures are diverse, complicated and rapidly evolving. Some disclosures are mandatory, while many other frameworks are voluntary. The nature and extent of your disclosures will depend on the interplay of the nature of your business, your local regulations, your sustainability strategy, and expectations of your key stakeholders (see our article What North American businesses must know about EU’s new ESG regulations). We can help with stakeholder engagement; materiality assessment; ESG roadmap development; analysis of ESG risks and opportunities; data collection; metrics selection and measurement; analysis of applicable disclosure regulations; application of frameworks that are right for you; and of course the preparation of visually impactful documents to deliver your sustainability message.
As companies embark on their sustainability journey, they often find themselves in the midst of challenging, yet exciting culture transformation. We are here to help you make the most of it. Your employees are one of your most critical stakeholders, and we know that people want to work for companies that are responsible, values-oriented, and that care about their people and society (see our article Why ESG-conscious companies have more motivated employees). Sustainability commitment alone goes a long way to motivate and retain the best talent - but it does not stop there.
We provide team coaching services and employee engagement advisory, tailored to your business and culture. One of the tools we use is Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) assessment, which is the world's most widely used method to understand communication and other differences among people (see our article What does Carl Jung have to do with corporate team building?). It is commonly deployed in work environments to promote team cohesion and align roles and leadership styles with individual strengths. You can learn more about this tool at https://www.myersbriggs.org/. We can deliver team-building workshops that utilize MBTI or are MBTI-independent, on topics such as culture alignment, communication, conflict resolution, stress management, leadership, and change management.
