In creating a tailored solution for your Ethical and Sustainable Purchasing (ESP) needs, we use a three-phased approach:

Analysis &
Design &
Implementation & Accountability

We develop a deep understanding of an organisation’s unique culture and the drivers motivating change.  Benchmarked against leading best practices, we help organisations understand where they are in the ethical purchasing and sustainability spectrum and suggest realistic and practical strategies to move forward. We help organisations both identify and engage with key stakeholders.

  2. Review Key Issues within PR and Marketing Strategies
  3. Best Practices Scans and Thought-Leader Interviews
  4. Stakeholders Maps, Consultation and Facilitation
  5. Purchasing and Supply Chain Process Audits
  6. Communication Strategies

We fast-track policy and design options based on best practice templates, which we then customise to your goals and your unique situation. We collaborate with you on streamlining new processes and use off-the-shelf tools to move quickly into piloting, review and implementation.
