SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS CONSULTING
We provide strategic advice on sustainability-related business decisions and support you to implement them. Our sustainable business consulting services are tailored to the sector, culture and aspirations of your company and always seek to maximise business value - operational efficiencies, de-risking and building trust in your brand. If you want to be the best in class we’ll help you get there, and if you want to just take a step in that direction, then we can help with that too.
The solutions we offer utilise the tools of sustainability strategy best practice set out below.
DATA & TARGETS
Data provides the foundation for understanding performance, tracking progress and showcasing achievements in your public reporting.
Technical, procedural and behavioural change solutions can all play a part in helping you achieve your sustainability goals.
GOVERNANCE & RESOURCES
The right accountability and approval structures coupled with engaged and supported business owners facilitate the smooth delivery of change.
STRATEGY DNA: CDP CLIMATE CHANGE
Rawstone Consulting worked with Strategy DNA to provide technical advice to a multi-billion dollar and globally renowned fertiliser company on the calculation and presentation of their carbon data and management information for the CDP Climate Change benchmark. The company achieved a 'C' rating in their first year of response, higher than they had originally aspired to.
VISION & COMMITMENTS
Clarity of vision and leadership buy-in sets the framework for strategic decisions. Setting this out in a formal sustainability policy gives stakeholders confidence in your commitment.
Engaging with stakeholders to build an understanding of their sustainability priorities is vital to maximise the business benefits of your approach. Addressing key issues and effectively communicating your response back to stakeholders completes the cycle.
RISK & OPPORTUNITY ANALYSIS
Evaluating the short, medium and long term impact and consequences of ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) issues from a risk and opportunity perspective allows appropriate measures to mitigate or capitalise them to be put into place.
