Focus Areas, Functional Strategies and Innovation

Strategy development is integral to deliver on your ambitions and goals in a coordinated, effective manner – we have the tools, experience and insights to not only support implementation of your existing initiatives but also bring new ideas to the table.

Holistic corporate sustainability strategies address multiple environmental and social topics, such as climate change and diversity. They will also cover functional aspects, such as operations and supply chain, and branding and communications. Sustainability considerations can also uncover innovative opportunities for process, product, and business model innovation.

With so many elements to consider, Anthesis can help you to define a strategy that clearly organises your strategy by topical and functional focus areas and defines objectives and initiatives within each aspect of your programme.

How we do it

  • Conducting an assessment of your sustainability risks, gaps and opportunities. This will involve interviews, research, and analysis on both internal and external factors.
  • Identifying and framing a set of high-level strategy options and goals that can deliver the most business value while improving sustainability performance. These options can be presented as part of an internal engagement session for feedback and refinement.
  • Organising the strategy into a comprehensive set of focus areas. For each strategy area we will consider the level of ambition needed, develop specific goals and outline how to achieve them.


Anthesis has acted as an extension of our internal team – effectively guiding us throughout our sustainability journey, taking into account our unique business drivers, company culture, goals and objectives. Their expertise and partnership have been instrumental to our ongoing progress.
