The transition to sustainable business models must be successful. Business as usual is not and will not be sufficient for a healthy planet that our businesses depend on.
We offer a variety of research services to help organisations understand the impact of the sustainability agenda on their work and to support them design their own sustainability strategy.
Some of our research services can be found below:
Understanding the impact of climate change will be one of the most important elements of strategic planning or both short and long-term. Sectors ranging from energy to insurance, from production to services must comprehend their own impact on the planet and must plan accordingly.
We conduct research to help organisations understand the impacts of climate change, assess their own footprint and plan and invest based on the projections inormed by research.
In parallel with rising environmental awareness, ever faster developing technology and improvement in the overall livelihood of people; parameters of natural resource use and environmental risk are becoming increasingly central concerns for decision making in addition to conventional parameters such as costs and performance.
Life cycle analyses (LCA) is a tool that helps decision making in complex situations. It is a tool in constant progress. LCA is used to calculate, manage and report the impact of a good or service, covering all processes from extraction of raw materials to production, supply chain, consumption to disposal.
Any company or sector with the sole aim of economic growth and profit will not be able to sustain their business. All business actors should evaluate their success in terms the wealth and social impact they create, as well as the environmental harm they avoid making while doing business.
We provide analyses and research for businesses to understand and evaluate their economic, social and environmental impact.
Sustainability is a long journey. Companies should review their progress periodically and shape their plans accordingly. After evaluating a company based on its goals, functions and issues we help them answer the following questions:
The transformation for sustainability is only possible through a relevant vision and long term planning. For this purpose, we support companies in:
In order to ‘sustain’ the sustainability strategy, the strategy should be carefully managed in a structured way. For this purpose, we recommend reviewing the system set for sustainability:
We support companies in creating such systems and reviewing the previously existing systems periodically.
For those companies who strive for sustainability, the higher levels of management should determine the main paths to follow and relevant teams for those paths should develop and implement necessary projects required to keep track. Reviewing and reporting the progress on a baseline is essential.
We help companies assess their progress, measure different indicators of sustainability and report the results periodically:
Reporting sustainability is essential because:
• It attracts attention from the employees, it helps raise awareness and expand the culture of sustainability within the company.
• It expects contributions from all departments and functions within the company, thus helps establish the metrics/indicators for sustainability.
• It provides the major benefit of measurement and reporting in general: “You can only manage what you measure.” It attracts effort and attention from employees, it guides the organisational behavior.
The purpose of reporting is to keep track of the company’s long term vision which covers all stakeholders and planet/people/profit approaches.
We guide companies in both choosing the best way of reporting that suits their needs and reporting their efforst and implementations effectively.
Capacity building for sustainability is crucial to internalize the sustainability vision and to successfully implement necessary actions. It is possible to design and conduct a variety of seminars:
Some of the seminars we have conducted previously are:
Our seminars are interactive (through facilitation, games, surveys etc.). During these seminars we introduce the best case scenarios from around the world in related sectors and fields, we put these cases in a relevant context for the company. All seminars are tailored to the needs and the dynamics of the sector, the company and the employees.
Managing an agenda for sustanability requires structured planning, engagement of teams and adaptation to change.

We support your projects and committees for truly effective governance and implementation while helping employees build capacity and show progress in their own roles with a vision for sustainability.
Sustainability is a transformation that must be successfully completed. It is usually easier to transform established systems than transforming established cultures…
