SUSTAINABILITY TRAINING, PROJECTS, POLICIES & PEOPLE
The many forces that impact the earth’s biosphere are transforming the way we make choices, work and live every day. We can no longer be idle and while many communities now recognize their role as global citizens of change, business and industry are the only institutions large, pervasive and powerful enough to truly make an impact and lead humanity to a sustainable and positive future.
We work with private and public sector organizations and NGO’s to identify opportunities. We then actively embed sustainable principles into the core of their strategy, operations and culture as they recognize their part in making a viable, collective transformation.
What we do to the planet, we do to ourselves. Green projects will help you protect the very thing that shelters us all.
In the initial stage we will work with you in conducting a detailed review of your current status against suggested green goals. Once firmly integrated into corporate level strategic planning, we will develop a detailed sustainability project plan for your long and short-term goals in a way that creates lasting value while also building trust.
We concentrate on the relationship between quality management and project management in the drive towards sustainability. Through PRISM methodology, ISO standards and other internal and external requirements and benchmarks, we can clearly identify and monitor to completion your sustainability deliverables and their impact on external expectations and your company’s overall goals.
Our sustainability, climate, training and project management experts will support you in your drive for a greener business.

The current financial crisis plaguing world economies has been detrimental on their global sustainability and the long-term viability of many financial institutions. This has had some dramatic effects on the implementation of projects sponsored by these financial institutions. It is true to say that sustainability projects remain a major challenge, not only to developing countries but for all geographies due to political changes, corruption, financial instability characterized by insolvency and liquidity problems and other social, cultural, environmental and economic factors.
As global communities rethink the way they conduct business to address challenges, we believe the most important mind shift is from seeing global ecological and social crises as risks to be mitigated, to opportunities, to “do well by doing good”. How business leaders address these challenges and where they see the best opportunities could hint at where the next big innovations happen.
Balancing increased regulation; protecting the brand and ensuring stable supply chains while seeking opportunity for enhanced performance. We work to bring about positive change through careful analysis, reporting and full project lifecycle management while tracking, delivering and reporting against your sustainable deliverables and overall strategy.
Our sustainability certified Project Managers and Business Analysts deliver and advise across project and programme lifecycle from small projects to full business transformations.
We work with ISO Standards and a number of methodologies including PRINCE II, PMP and PRISM.

Corporate governance is fundamentally about what a business interests are and how companies should and are run, however, wider issues such as business ethics through entire value chains, human rights, bribery and corruption, and climate change are among the great issues of our time that increasingly cut into compliance reporting. As a result, a growing proportion of our work has seen the fusion of corporate governance with such wider societal concerns. We work with the increasingly complex cross-connects between the rapidly transforming governance agenda and the growing world of corporate responsibility.
Our sustainability certified Governance Risk and Compliance experts not only deliver across the usual genres within Governance, but also support The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) in reporting standards, which enable organizations to measure and understand their most critical impacts on the environment, society and the economy.
