Empowering Sustainability & Circularity
Sustainability strategy development
In recent years, the strategic importance of sustainability has grown enormously. Climate change, scarcity of raw materials and concerns about social injustice are resulting in stricter legislation and greater social pressure to take responsibility.
Circularity strategy and measurement
By 2050, the Dutch economy is to be entirely circular. In order to achieve the transformation to a circular economy, we still have a big gap to bridge. Currently only 9% of the world’s economy is circular. How can organisations prepare for the circular economy? Which standards should be taken into account and how can this be translated into concrete action for employees?
Carbon strategy development and reporting
With CO2 emissions as one of the biggest drivers of climate change, corporate emissions have increasingly come under a magnifying glass. Companies have to make their contribution to the climate targets set out in the Paris Agreement.
The strategy is clear and the plans have been developed. The starting signal still resonates in everyone’s ears. Everyone knows what to do. Or do they? You may recognise this: in practice, energy can quickly dissipate.
Reporting and communication
Society is a critical observer that demands transparency. Sustainability reports have become the new standard. Organisations must fulfil their obligations, but a report also offers the opportunity to position the company in the field of sustainability and circularity.
To make the European economy and society future-proof (against climate change), the EU has developed the so-called European Green Deal. The European Green Deal aims to transform the EU economy into a resource-efficient, competitive economy whereby (net) zero greenhouse gasses are emitted by 2050.
CSR due diligence
Since the launch of the OECD Guidelines for multinational enterprises and the introduction of the UN Guiding Principles (UNGPs), companies have been struggling with the translation of these guidelines into their governance policy, management tools and business practices. As legislation surrounding these themes grows, so does the need to find ways to address them.
