What we do
Experience has taught us that today’s challenges are often better solved when actors from different sectors come together around common interests.
We work with leading businesses to scope and support the delivery of inclusive, sustainable shareholder value – focusing on purpose-led growth for businesses and brands and working across entire value chains.
We help non-profits to transform performance and enhance the prospects for securing their particular social and environmental mission, whilst ensuring a holistic approach to their wider environmental, social and governance (ESG) responsibilities.
And we challenge and support ambitious philanthropists – and their foundation or commercial vehicles – to optimise the societal impact of their entrepreneurial and other assets.
We focus on the authentic - helping clients mitigate and navigate the risks of “corporate green or woke washing” or “NGO soul-selling”.
How we do it
Our style is collaborative and customised: we don’t begin with preconceived ideas and overly rigid processes; we take the time to listen, understand your context and ask the right questions before we develop our response. Together with our clients we engage, collaborate and co-develop solutions that are built to last and built to scale - drawing on the principles of enlightened self-interest and enduring value.
When we know what you need, we select the right team of people for you; together we develop the framework and navigate through the processes to achieve your strategic objectives and effect enduring and often profound, change.
Our services are summarised below. Please get in touch to explore how we can help you ask the right questions - and how we can work with you to secure the most compelling, sustainable value – for your business, for society and for the environment.
If I had an hour to solve a problem and my life depended on it, I would use the first 55 minutes determining the proper question to ask, for once I know the proper question, I could solve the problem in less than five minutes.
