How to Change a Laggard Industry on a Tight Budget?

In terms of sustainability, the golf sector never has been a frontrunner, rather the opposite: a true laggard. The entire industry is jam-packed with tradition. An amazing challenge and opportunity to change such a back marker, is what Finch & Beak thought. Why not make the game of golf more sustainable? It was obvious that the only realistic solution to start, was to trace the sustainability pain-points in the value proposition of golf courses and their stakeholders, and to create value from it for those same stakeholders. With the help of our process tool GLOBE-US in combination with the Business Model Canvas, Finch & Beak could uncover the relevant sustainability touch points of the industry, and could develop a suitable value proposition.

Shaping the Horizon for Long Term Value Creation

Companies are outlining more and more sustainability issues in their annual reports. Recently published reports prove that companies in the same industry address different material topics in their Form 10-K, which is the annual report required in the United States by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for traded companies. The inconsistency in reporting, offers various initiatives opportunities to raise the bar for sustainability accounting standards. Organizations like the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC), Good Agricultural and Collection Practices (GACP) and so on continuously improve their standards.
