We believe that a business operates within a dynamic social system, is highly vulnerable to changes that occur within other elements of the system and, as such, cannot stay independent to environmental and social vulnerabilities.
We believe that the nature of socio-environmental risks and the multidimensional impacts on organisations require more than the typical methodologies and frameworks approach that traditional risk and business consulting provide. Creating innovative and adaptive solutions requires greater collaboration within organisations and across sectors to stay ahead with environmental regulations and generate insights on social trends that is becoming more prominent in our evolving landscape.
We believe in being role models and setting an example for our clients by managing our environmental footprint. As such, we adopt efficient and eco-friendly initiatives that guide our approach to delivering projects and in our lives.
We believe that with our understanding of socio-environmental risks, insights into our clients business and partnerships, we can support organisations to remain competitive while creating transformative businesses that positively impact the environment and society.
We believe that the true value of any organisation is measured by economic, social and environmental indicators. Operating in a social system, an organisation must ensure that it has unlimited access to human and natural resources to support its business operations and that its consumers are economically and socially stable to purchase its goods or services. This relationship ultimately necessitates a three pronged approach for defining and measuring corporate performance.
Because we understand the complex and systemic nature of socio-environmental risks and its capacity to negatively impact business along multiple dimensions, our team is comprised of a multidisciplinary group of professionals with a mix of skill set and experience who have worked across financial, agriculture, oil & gas, SME, and other sectors, to assist companies with integrating socio-environmental considerations in their business strategies.
Also, despite socio-environmental issues being unique to local environments, we acknowledge that some vulnerabilities are peculiar to markets that possess similar economic, social, cultural and environmental structures. For this reason, we have built partnerships with highly respected teams of international professionals working in similar markets in areas of research, academia and shared value innovation to benefit from different strengths, perspectives and best practices relevant for our target markets.
Sustainable firms are those doing the best job at creating net wealth–economic, social, and ecological–as compared to their peers.Toby Heaps, Corporate Knights
