Business Planning for Sustainability
Companies that understand their environmental footprint and how the environment affects their business gain a competitive edge. Business Planning for Sustainability explores the business case for sustainability, and how a firm's culture, purpose and operations may change. As a strategic level module, it involves the firm's most senior management, calls for their commitment to the Sustainability Advantage program, and sets a long-term path and initial actions.
Partners first sketch their sustainability vision and long-term goals. These are reviewed internally to build support and to align the goals with existing corporate strategies.
A second session scopes out what is needed to deliver the sustainability goals - with appropriate plans, KPIs, resources and reporting. Companies then implement their plan for at least 12 months, reviewing it as they would any priority business plan.
While results depend on a company's own efforts, Sustainability Advantage assists its partners with:
- practical workshops;
- a comprehensive range of guides, case studies and templates;
- phone and email advice;
- feedback on company documents;
- and one-on-one specialist support.
Partners also work in a cluster of like-minded companies that offer mutual support, networking opportunities and specialist seminars. Partners' efforts towards sustainability are promoted through the Sustainability Advantage recognition program.
