Many companies are looking to grow sustainably in the market these days, and are either pushed by their customers, employees or own values to lighten their environmental footprint. While it might be daunting for some company owners to think about where to start, we have a simple system to audit 4 key areas of a business, and identify the easiest and best places to make some shifts in process to either make products and services more green, or even, a the company functional performance.
Through assessing a company and giving them a business robustness score, we identify where key weaknesses are to be filled. Typically, we have investors, funding programs, awards or even entrepreneurs themselves asking for this. We do this by conducting our 8 point check to identify where a company might need support to secure their future success. After this check, we start a coaching and key process project, and then connect and activate our network to help them over the hurdle.
We work with investors, funds and awards to help them set goals which are beyond annual finance reports with broader KPIs which involve environmental and social good and convert stranded assets. We do this by conducting our 3-step analysis of goals and target investments. With the UN SDGs and circular economy measures, we help investors identity which goals they personally and communally have and help them align them to companies who deliver in that perspective.
We are an organisation who delivers services to entrepreneurs who want to develop more circularity or sustainability in their product or company, or for investors or funding organisations who want to build more entrepreneurialism into their investments.
