• Adopting standards to improve on sustainability continuously
• Roadmap, action, and investment plan for recommendations
This international retailer wants to be a frontrunner in sustainability. It already made improvements on many sustainable topics. After being inspired about the B Community, the Dutch organization formulated the ambition to use the B Corp standards and methods. To assess the current level of social and environmental performance according to the B standard. Been Management Consulting is a B Corp Way Partner. Can we guide them? Sure we can!
Interviews, B Impact Assessment, Workshops
First, we onboarded client in the B standards. What does this holistic approach entail? We organized interviews with key employees, analyzed publicly available materials and compliancy with B standards.
In phase 2, we completed the B Impact Assessment to identify the current level of ESG performance. Looking at sustainability in the broadest sense: Environment, Employees, Clients, Community, and Governance.
We involved colleagues of different departments and disciplines to answer questions on operational impact and the company's business model. Together with the client, we developed a detailed improvement plan. Along the way, we facilitated outside-in inspiration and workshops for the leadership team.
Quick Scan and Continuous Improvement Plan
We delivered a Quick Scan with key strengths, key opportunities for improvement plus an assessment of compliancy items. In phase 2, we completed the B Impact Assessment. We delivered a detailed improvement plan for continuous improvement. This includes a roadmap, action plans for each board member and colleague. Plus an investment overview for the first sustainable improvements we recommended.
You provided fantastic support. We truly experienced the ‘bicycle model’, where you transfer knowledge and skills.
