Developing a Roadmap for Sustainability

When sustainability becomes an integral part of business, its legacy is ensured for future generations and stakeholders to enjoy. Plotting the Future is a holistic tool to facilitate the development of a high-level roadmap for the implementation planning of a company’s sustainability strategy. It is based on back-casting, a technique that starts by projecting a future objective on a time horizon and then plans backwards towards the present.

Pinpointing The Potential of Sustainable Innovation

In order to better understand customer requirements and to encourage firms to generate Many Alternative Sustainable Solutions (MASS) in developing sustainable innovations, Explore Your Customore was created; a toolbox with a set of inspirational cards with proven innovation methodologies.

Defining a Vectoring Approach to Sustainable Development

An outside source of drive and inspiration for many organizations and individuals can be found in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): a unique initiative in voluntary global responsibility with clear targets and deadlines. When a company considers the development of an SDG initiative but does not have the resources to conduct full-fledged detailed research on this, the need for a simple and straightforward SDG analysis arises. Applying the SDG Proposition Canvas in a workshop format is aimed at addressing exactly that need.

Designing a Purposeful Business

Many firms fail to successfully implement their sustainability strategies, not because they lack the desire, the willingness or even the belief in the impact of sustainability on their businesses, but because they fail to identify proper objectives for their efforts. Setting a clear and meaningful purpose can help an organization to coalesce various efforts and goodwill and gives a shared sense of direction. The Bob’s Burgers workshop and Cover Story exercise can help to define a sustainability-based purpose.

Empowering Smallholder Farmers within the Value Chain

What do the Rana Plaza clothing factory disaster and the Chinese food safety scandal that, according to Reuters, caused a 4.2 percent share price decrease for Yum Brands have on common? They are two of the many examples of the costs and risks that companies can incur when a sustainable and integrated supply chain management is not in place. On the other hand, responsible management comes with many benefits, including greater access to capital and new markets, reducing the cost of material input, energy and transportation, and spurring innovation in order to meet evolving customer and business partner requirements. The business case is clear.

Start 2017 with Accelerating Your DJSI Approach

In 2016, increased transparency on ESG aspects towards investors has changed the ratings game and accelerated the business case for sustainability. Investor benchmarks such as the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) provide an excellent opportunity for external acknowledgment of your company’s efforts. RobecoSAM and Finch & Beak are excited to announce two dedicated trainings: one for experienced DJSI participants, and one for companies that are just joining the process.
