Creating a strategy for your organisation that focuses on sustainable value creation
Societal value creation has become critical for corporate strategy
The world has woken up to the scale of global challenges including climate change, nature loss and extreme inequality. Investors, customers, employees and regulators are demanding a much more purposeful response from businesses. Moving to a genuinely sustainable economy will require transformative change in almost every established industry.
For most organisations, surviving in this reshaped economy will require fundamental business model changes. The shift to a sustainable economy represents an existential risk for slow-to-respond organisations. But there are major opportunities for those businesses that identify risks and opportunities early and take decisive action.
To do this effectively, you need a partner that understands the complex and interrelated sustainability challenges and the practical and commercial challenges for your business. We give you clear and actionable insight throughout your journey, from strategy to execution and implementation. We can also help you measure, evaluate and communicate your results.
Societal value creation has become a critical lens for corporate strategy. In disrupted times, an explicit focus on creating value for society provides a means to navigate market uncertainty and strengthen an organisation’s purpose.
We work with you on strategy definition, through execution and implementation, to delivery of results and communication of your sustainability narrative.
We combine industry experience with skills in corporate strategy and purpose, impact measurement and predictive analytics, to work with your board and executives to develop evidence-based strategies that deliver value for all stakeholders.
We can also help integrate sustainability value drivers into M&A activity, major change programmes and core organisational strategy.
Sustained success can no longer be achieved through a narrow focus on short-term financial returns. Businesses need to be able to measure and manage positive and negative impacts on all stakeholders. You can effectively measure and value your impacts using our market leading Total Impact Measurement and Management (TIMM) framework and peer reviewed methodologies.
Our proven methodologies are highly flexible and have been applied to measure, estimate and forecast the societal impacts of products, investments, initiatives and sites, as well as whole organisations and value chains. We also use our methodologies alongside predictive analytics to forecast the societal impacts of alternative growth scenarios, strategic plans, and prospective policy changes. Our impact measurement approaches are frequently used at the definition stage for sustainability and society-first strategies.
The ESG wave is fast approaching. Public awareness of ESG related risks, major societal shifts and rising regulatory scrutiny all stress the immediate need for the Private Equity sector to anticipate this new reality and step-up their strategic measures in order to change along with the times, for the benefit of their investors and the wider community.
Reliable and consistent sustainability reporting can be a challenge in the face of increasing disclosure requirements. Assurance increases credibility with outside stakeholders, but also provides internal assurance to management, staff and board members that your business practices are sustainable.
Incorporating both financial and non-financial information into your sustainability reports can pose new challenges.
The art of navigating high-pace resource disruptions in the world today
The demographic explosion, changing consumer demands and expectations, trade wars, resource scarcity and price volatility and climate change. These are just a few examples of the social, economic, environmental and geopolitical drivers that organisations, industries and governments have to take into account to retain their licence to operate and create and maximize value for all their stakeholders.
