Let’s be honest: sustainability-related activities are complex, cross-disciplinary and long-term. Ensuring alignment across teams, departments and even external stakeholders can take a lot of time and effort.

Sustainability programs break up big undertakings into smaller, more manageable projects. These offer the benefit of unifying direction, clarifying responsibilities, helping measure progress better, and standardizing data-collection and reporting. Our approach also provides ongoing results and deliverables that can further motivate all your stakeholders to achieve even bigger goals!

We help set up sustainability programs for your organization by:

  • Aligning program goals to your overall business goals
  • Working with your leadership team and internal departments to define realistic plans, work structure and metrics
  • Kick-starting implementation
  • Training your teams to take over

Materiality assessments

Carrying out your materiality assessments in line with international standards.

Why do a materiality assessment? Because with proven approach and methodology, you can focus on important impact areas that matter most to you and your stakeholders. Moreover, regulations are getting stricter and materiality assessment is now mandatory for companies that are or will become obliged to report under the European Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD).

Materiality assessments help you identify your organization’s most significant impacts and risks, engage stakeholders, and prioritize important material topics that will become the foundation of your sustainability strategy.

We conduct a four-step materiality assessment which follows the GRI standards, including identification of negative and positive impacts, which are then assessed and prioritized. You can then use the finalized materiality assessment to develop your own sustainability strategy or report
or let us do it for you!

Sustainable packaging

Guiding your marketing, engineering and operations teams towards choosing and developing the best sustainable packaging solutions.

Packaging is at the forefront of the product experience and clients for whom we have developed sustainable packaging tell us that they benefit from increased customer loyalty and a better brand image.

Behind the scenes, packaging can be a significant part of a product’s environmental footprint. Customers negatively associate packaging with waste and pollution, and rightly so. Also, waste and pollution can result in increased fees and taxes in some markets.

We can make your packaging more sustainable by:

  • Analyzing packaging’s environmental footprint using a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)
  • Defining the biggest opportunities (“hotspots”) for packaging reduction, innovation and savings
  • Setting up sustainable packaging plans and projects
  • Developing a financial business case, because more sustainable packaging can also save costs
  • Kick-starting implementation
  • Training your team to take over

Sustainability communication

Creating sustainability claims that meet the regulations and standards for your products and services.

How do you remain compliant to increasingly stricter rules and standards for sustainability, while also making sure none of your marketing could be accused of greenwashing?

If you want to position your products and services as sustainable, we can provide clear and defined direction on sustainability messaging and substantiation that does exactly that, now and into the future.

We help you by:

  • Assessing your existing marketing and communication materials’ compliance with green guides and ISO norms
  • Conducting competition analysis
  • Developing sustainability messaging and claims in line with regulation and standards
  • Setting up sustainability claims’ substantiation processes and systems
  • Creating tailor-made sustainable claims’ guidance
  • Training your marketing and communication teams how to apply all of the above

Sustainable product design

Guiding your product management and R&D teams towards designing for sustainability.

80% of product’s sustainability comes from the product’s design. Sustainability is a catalyst for product innovation and gives your products a competitive edge while also having positive impact on society and the environment.

We guide your product development teams to approach design with sustainability in mind, including supply chain and circularity considerations, while always addressing your customers’ needs.

We carry out product Life Cycle Assessments (LCAs) as required so product development can focus on the largest opportunities (“hotspots”) within defined environmental impact categories.

Sustainability / ESG reporting in accordance with GRI standards

Creating and updating your sustainability and ESG reports in line with international standards (GRI, ESRS), ready for your key stakeholders.

Issuing a robust sustainability report is a project in itself: key tasks include data collection, coordination of multiple stakeholders’ inputs, ensuring alignment with previous reports and selected standards, ensuring the right communication messages, as well as getting management buy-in.

Moreover, publishing your first sustainability report is an even bigger task, as you need to decide on the structure, content, tone, visuals, and what information to publish, while also securing buy-in from stakeholders and setting up the necessary data collection and metrics. Phew!

We create and update sustainability and non-financial reports that appeal to your key stakeholder interests and which are aligned to international standards. Our service includes:

  • Defining the structure and content in line with your organization’s activities and material topics
  • Coordinating input, including stakeholder interviews, input coordination and data collection
  • Developing the content and messaging
  • Conducting management and stakeholder reviews
  • Ensuring reporting in accordance with GRI standards
