Welcome !

Gaining an understanding of how climate change will affect your organisation, our country and this planet, and more importantly what you can do about it, is an issue that is finding its way to risk meetings and business planning

  • So, for organisations who believe that climate change is here,
  • believe that it is important to do something about your impact,
  • and are unsure where to start or need some help getting there –

I can help

By delivering clear inputs into strategy & policy, understanding current state, creating targets with ongoing measures and tracking projects.

I support organisations that need extra thinking, extra hands to help and best practice guidance

Its all about Getting Sustainability Done, Getting Stuff Done (see what we did there)

Proven skills, technological understanding and strategic thinking.

Lets talk…

Link to a bigger outcome

So….climate change is here and whether some believe it or not – many businesses and individuals have started to think about the financial, social and environmental impact.

Deciding to do something about it starts with a commitment to do something. As example – the Climate Leaders Coalition.  Many leaders and organisations have made commitments to work on change and it all starts with a decision to do something about it.

Goals need to be set. Policy and direction clear. Strategy set, a sustainability plan in place. 4 key stages for any change outcome – know where we are, what we need to do, take action and re-adjust to hit our targets.

We need to link to a bigger outcome. The UN SDGs is an example of a bigger outcome where it is not just about being sustainable across environmental, social and financial areas.

Many organisations are choosing to embed the SDGs into their organisational goals. How are they contributing to this important area and how can they affect some change.

Start with a Materiality assessment, discover where you already may be working and align even further

The UN SDGs

In September 2015, the General Assembly adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development that includes 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Building on the principle of “leaving no one behind”, the new Agenda emphasizes a holistic approach to achieving sustainable development for all.
