THE PLANET SYSTEM®
Many organisations are responding to the sustainability challenge by jumping into some form of accreditation process in the hope that it will fast forward the appearance of “doing the right thing”. As a certified BCorp ourselves, we support finding the right accreditation programme. But if you dive into something too soon, without taking full ownership and properly understanding the full breadth of what sustainability covers for your business, this can lead simply to box-ticking or, at worst, to greenwashing. The PLANET System® allows for initial self-audit, and includes education and improvement tools. So you and your team can learn together and develop a future strategy that is right for you.
The Sustainable Business Book
Everyone we speak to is saying Sustainability (or ESG) is top of their business agenda, but in most cases action appears limited. We appreciate many are struggling to get to grips with how to create an effective action plan, which is why we wrote The Sustainable Business Book and developed The PLANET System®.
The book and system are informed by a large amount of research, reading and consulting over the past six years. We have also been through the complete process of B Corp accreditation ourselves, which has helped to shine a light on our own business and make sure that we practice what we preach.
