As brands strive to integrate sustainability across their operations and supply chains, our multidisciplinary team offers tailored solutions that help our clients effectively navigate the landscape of sustainability whether they are just beginning their journey or have mature programs in place.
Our suite of services include benchmarking, strategy, program development and implementation, team support, training and communications. These are offered as stand-alone services or can be packaged together allowing our clients to progress at their own pace and according to their specific brand objectives.
Benchmarking is a crucial first step in crafting a sustainability strategy that is both relevant and effective. Measuring yourself against competitors and recognized leaders helps illuminate areas needing attention and gives perspective to your perceived strengths.
We are your partner for developing a comprehensive, integrated sustainability strategy. We work with brands and their suppliers to identify priorities, set both practical and aspirational goals and align existing programs, governance frameworks, budgets and resources that allow our clients to effectively engage, measure progress and meet program objectives.
PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT & IMPLEMENTATION
Whether you have an existing program that needs refinement or are starting from scratch, our team has the technical and strategic experience to bring your sustainability vision to life. Our approach emphasizes supply chain optimization through programs that are highly tactical, collaborative, pragmatic and results-driven.
Integrating sustainability involves the engagement of all stakeholders whether they are internal teams (design, sourcing, merchandising, etc) or partners within the supply chain (training and ownership programs). We have workshops and training programs available that include basic sustainability overview and tool integration to comprehensive social and environmental training.
In the rapidly changing world of sustainability we recognize that internal teams sometimes need support in tackling new initiatives and objectives. Finding and training talent can be challenging and time consuming. As such, we can increase bandwidth and provide the expertise and guidance to achieve team objectives, without impacting headcount. We work cross-functionally in this capacity, supporting product, legal/compliance and stand-alone corporate responsibility teams.
We work with existing marketing teams, whether internal or external, to effectively and accurately communicate sustainability programs through meaningful and impactful campaigns and storytelling. Our understanding of consumer perception of and behavior on sustainability helps our clients align with their target consumers, understand the competitive landscape and create a point-of-differentiation that will manage reputation risk, build brand equity and drive growth.
