How we do it Plan

Creating sustainable business and achieving sustainability outcomes always requires a good plan. Sustainability is our business and we work together with you to develop a plan that is right for your business and project. Our plans are action orientated with activities, milestones and owners identified that are focused on your success criteria and positive measurable change.  Our projects adopt the highest standards in project management delivery to ensure success.

Your project may be focused on a particular sustainability issue or range of issues that could include: climate change, energy, green materials, carbon, waste, packaging, water, sustainable supply, social value, community benefit, bio-diversity, human rights, diversity and anti-slavery, equality, inclusivity, health and wellbeing, corporate responsibility. Sustainability is a complex multi-disciplinary area which we understand. We will work with you to develop a plan that delivers the outcomes and competitive advantage that you want.

Our purpose is to drive sustainable business through action. Good planning is a key part of this.

Why do you need a good plan?

That old saying, 'fail to plan, plan to fail'

It is true that a failure to plan can lead to failure. Action Sustainability work collaboratively with you to develop a plan that is workable and ensures success. Our consultants adopt the highest standards in project delivery.

Identifying risks before they happen

During the planning process, we will highlight risks and assumptions we have made to ensure a successful delivery. We typically provide regular progress reports to you that highlight any issues and risks to the project as we move through implementation.

Full transparency of the financial implications

Our projects typically operate on a fixed fee basis which we agree with you upfront prior to the project commencing. Our promise to our clients is that there will be 'no surprises' on project costs or over-run and any changes to the project will be agreed with yourselves in advance.

Our process Step-by-step

Action Sustainability works collaboratively with you to develop a workable plan that ensures success. We typically hold a face-to-face inception meeting with you to discuss the plan which we then refine with you. Good project management practice is embedded into all our projects.

Step One

The meet & greet

We'll meet to discuss the requirements of your business and how we can help you acheieve these goals in a set time period.

Step Two

We create the initial plan

Based on our intial discussions, we'll create a solid plan of action for the weeks/months/years ahead which will of course address all the action points you brought to us.

Step Three

We’ll review this together

We'll meet again - your place or ours - and go through the plan with a fine-tooth comb to ensure everyone is on the right page. When you're happy we will then move onto the next phase of the project.
