This outdoor retailer had recently appointed a Corporate Social Responsibility Director but needed additional bandwidth and sustainability expertise to communicate the organization’s socially responsible successes to both internal and external stakeholder audiences.
Sustainable Business Consulting helped to promote the company’s sustainability message by:
- Gathering stories and sustainability metrics to create and design the company’s first externally-facing Corporate Social Responsibility report
- Customizing specific tools to help the organization calculate sustainable value-driving opportunities and use corporate responsibility metrics to better communicate the business case for sustainability across its leadership and employee base
The Corporate Social Responsibility Director was able to make a strong business case for sustainability to the company’s Board and Leadership team which led to increased funding for the program and, ultimately, increased cost savings from sustainability and socially responsible investments across the organization. The company also benefited from an integrated, company-wide sustainability program rather than a department-focused effort.
