Accelerate your sustainability transformation with a value-driven partner

Sustainability is an unmissable opportunity to do business better. But where do you start? And how do you accelerate time to value in your sustainability transformation?

Deliver early and ongoing value in your sustainability transformation

Creating a sustainable future is not just about reducing emissions, cutting costs, or meeting ESG regulations. It's an opportunity to deliver positive change that can benefit everyone: your customers, business, and partners; your stakeholders, communities, and the world around us.

That’s why our approach to sustainability is value-led and outcomes-driven. From sustainable product design and sustainability consulting, to lifecycle assessments and data-empowered ESG strategy, we help diverse organisations to accelerate their sustainability transformation, with a focus on creating tangible customer and commercial value, for example:

Impact assessments

Want to shape a more sustainable future for your organisation and the world around us? ​ 

Our impact assessments help you understand the economic, environmental, and social impact of your projects, products, portfolios, and processes.​ 

  • Gain the insights you need to understand and elevate the sustainability potential of your organisation and value chain.​ 
  • Identify improvement opportunities with the highest potential to deliver impact against your sustainability goals. 
  • Kickstart your sustainability journey with a data-driven assessment that improves sustainability awareness and advocacy within your organisation. 
  • Assess the complete lifecycle of your digital or physical products and solutions with a lifecycle assessment.

Sustainable product design

Keeping your products, materials, and resources in circulation as long as possible unlocks big economic benefits and minimises your costs, waste, and emissions. What’s more, sustainable product design enables the regeneration of finite natural resources. 

  • Create the next generation products with a reduced ecological footprint, higher efficiency ready to tackle new market segments​. 
  • Improve the lifecycle to reduce impact and improve circularity to keep products alive. Changes are made ​in alignment with business cases and production costs. 
  • Realise sustainable products to reduce the ecological impact and reduce costs. Products can be used in a circular way according to a sustainable business model.​ 

Sustainable business models

Harness data, modern technologies, and ecosystem partnerships to innovate sustainable business models that deliver positive impact. For your business, people, and planet. 

  • Develop and scale sustainable business models that better serve customer needs and unlock new value streams for your organisation. 
  • Innovate digital and circular business models that enable you to reach new audiences, drive profitable growth, and reduce costs and emissions by keeping resources and products in use for longer. 
  • Ensure sustainable competitive advantage with a validated model tested in market and with your customers.

ESG strategy and reporting consulting

Many organisations lack information on the ecological footprint of their business processes. Even where that information is available, it’s usually static. This means you’re unable to continuously monitor the effects of your CO2 reduction initiatives.​ 

  • Turn static ESG data into real-time actionable business insights that help you deliver on your sustainability goals. 
  • Digitise your ESG reporting with the right software and data pipelines to uncover opportunities, tackle your most relevant emissions drivers and measure changes and impacts systematically. 
  • Benefit from an efficient emission reporting process and steer your business in a sustainable way. Clearly connect CO2 reduction possibilities to your business processes to enable consistent decision making.​

Data-driven sustainability

Realise a systematic approach for creating business value from sustainability data. Accelerate time to value with a data-driven sustainability transformation and sustainability consulting approach. Harness the power of data to improve knowledge sharing. And uncover new sustainability use cases and business opportunities. 

  • Develop a portfolio of qualified sustainability use cases, informed by data, analytics, and AI.  
  • Prioritise and realise your use cases while we build up the company-wide foundations for innovation through sustainability data.​ 
  • Benefit from a systematic approach to innovation with data and ongoing value creation. 
  • Upskill your people, streamline your processes, and realise new market opportunities.​

Green IT & sustainable software

Energy efficiency is the biggest lever you can pull when transitioning to a sustainable IT landscape with tangible business benefits. But where should you start, and which metrics should you use to ensure impact?​ 

  • Analyse your existing environment to identify the biggest levels you can pull to improve energy efficiency and optimise costs. 
  • Create and implement a roadmap of prioritised initiatives to transition your IT and software to lower energy alternatives that reduce costs and resource consumption. 
  • This provides a blueprint for action to turn the identified initiatives into action and successively guide your company in the direction of energy efficient and green IT​. 
  • Boost efficiencies with sustainable software engineering approaches such as low-code development
