– Advocacy, Research, Consultancy, Training and Advisory Services
With a combined experience of over 35 years in CSR and Sustainability, our team of consultants are readily available to provide consultation and advisory services to Governments, Enterprises, Regulatory Bodies, Civil Society Organisations and the general public in areas such as:
With experience in over 80 countries, our international team of auditors and consultants can assess your organization against any salient risks, be it financial or reputational and identify opportunities for sustainability in the market place.This may be potential interwoven risks posed to a regulatory agency, an environmental risk in a production company or an intricate combination of supply chain issues that may adversely affect bottom-line
Awareness, Strategy, Structure and Process are key to stakeholder engagement. We can work with organizations to audit their key stakeholders be it a global supply chain network, financial investment partner, an insurance client or licensed shipping line, then review their strategy enabling us to help to structure and put in place a CSR process which will in turn help to identify enhancement opportunities. We can then build a customized training program that allows field teams and internal stakeholders to improve performance in this critical area. Programs normally involve an initial review and assessment period followed by a classroom training session and a field mentoring period and culminating in a final classroom session. Ongoing mentoring and support is also available.
CSR and sustainability spending is often more focused on corporate philanthropy not creating the desired societal value to stakeholders. We help companies to create and capture more stakeholder value from existing CSR and sustainability programs.
We specialize in designing and implementing sector-focused training programs and practical learning events tailored to your needs. These programs are usually delivered at desired project sites and training venues. We also provide other training programs across the region on CSR and HRDD. The training schedules are published twice per year on our website and other online platforms.
We work with organizations to assess CSR needs and develop a strategic CSR plan for their organization. With an understanding of the unique opportunities and challenges through sample audits, we develop and deliver training programs that facilitate efficient and sustainable implementation of the CSR program.
Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) have emerged recently as one of the best ways to foster development, fueled by insufficient resources, growing pressures on government budgets and a general concern about service provision by state enterprises and agencies. CSR Partnerships can be an efficient means to deliver both developmental value to the community and value to the organization. Whether it is a business partnering with the public sector or a development partner, there is a potential for synergy and improved and broadened value creation. We will work with your organization to review/develop your CSR partnership strategy and then work with your team to identify and develop sustainable partnerships.
Reporting and communications are vital in achieving your CSR goals and involves all units within the organization. We will to review your CSR Reporting and Communications process, identify opportunities for increased efficiency and value creation and then help train key personnel in line with global best practice to help create shareholder value.
Every organization has a ‘social value brand’ whether you know it or not. It can help you to create value, or it can be a drag and cost you value. We can help you to understand your social value brand and use it to create shareholder value.
We can work with you to develop strategic CSR events to help build your public image and position your organization.
