Awareness & Purpose Design
Impact Pioneers teach us that concrete Impact is only realized from an acute Awareness of the Systemic problems, the stakes, the stakeholders and the value chain in which they are playing. We spark a reflection around your mission and help you (re)define a meaningful Purpose for the Company, that will bind all stakeholders, inside-out, to drive Impact and Value creation. Without a clear Purpose, any Sustainability Strategy will end up with marginal Impact and often Green-washing. We help you engineer and embed that Purpose into Business with several Tools.
