Guiding the Sustainable Actions Design process
Our Sustainable Actions Design process collaborates with you to gather intelligence, identify the root cause, and map stakeholder needs. We simplify variables, generate fresh ideas, and align them with your organization's strategy, priorities, and objectives.
We consider the impact on beneficiaries and the community, available resources, and alliances. It aligns with local policies, SDGs, Agenda 2030, and ESG. We set impact measurement indicators and identofy funding mechanisms from the perspective of People, Planet, and Prosperity..
Sustainable Actions Delivery: Planning and Execution
We take a comprehensive approach to Sustainable Actions Delivery, focusing on planning and execution. Our methodology includes assessing the immediate, second, and third-degree impacts on the community and the ecosystem while breaking down the design into manageable components to preserve resources.
We use horizon planning to evaluate waypoints and provide backup plans to keep the execution on track. Regular reassessment at every milestone streamlines the process and ensures consistent success, provides opportunities for reporting on performance indicators and motivates your team to continue making progress.
