Sustainability Goals

We can use frameworks such the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals to inform and guide your goal-setting process.

Setting public goals is a leading practice for corporate sustainability programmes. They are a primary way to differentiate among peers and credibly communicate commitment to sustainability improvement. They also are invaluable in setting a strategic direction that aligns the organisation and motivates internal stakeholders. Your goals should reflect the agreed vision and ambition level and drive progress on the environmental and social issues identified as strategically important.

How we do it

While we customise the goal-setting process for every client, we typically:

  • Assess your current sustainability programme and culture and review the external goals landscape and stakeholder expectations.
  • Facilitate one or more workshops to engage internal stakeholders and collect ideas for goals, which Anthesis will supplement and organise into a set of options.
  • Define a goals framework, including themes, timeframe, topics, and ambition level.
  • Finalise the framework and define quantitative time-bound targets for each specific goal.

Testimonials

Our ability to translate strategy into meaningful outcomes has been fully recognised and appreciated by the client: Simply put, we would not have been able to do it without Anthesis.
