B Corp Implementation
Assess your organisations impact and implement the global B Corp standard to grow your business while positively impacting society.
The decade of action to the UN 2030 Agenda requires commitment, transformation, collaboration, creativity and boldness.
From the corporate world, public administrations, local and global not-for-profit and from every single citizen too.
We believe times of uncertainty can present windows of opportunities.
We love to advocate for a better, more sustainable and inclusive world, but we excel in designing and delivering concrete solutions that drive change, from within our clients’ companies, through to their stakeholders and to the public at large.
We love to listen. And observe. Only then are we in a position to partner, to guide, to suggest and to empower.
Because we believe only our clients can truly own the solution to their challenges. Our role is to ignite, to plant the relevant seeds at the right time in the right soil… and to identify and nurture the right water spring.
The SHIFT is inspired by this journey and aspires to make a meaningful contribution!
We draw our inspiration and values from the world of sport. It determines who we are, how we work and why we are unique.
Every challenge has its solution. Sometimes, solutions have already been tested elsewhere and it’s just a matter of tweaking and fine tuning… and other times it has to start from a white page.
In all cases, we believe in a humble, cross-sectoral approach - simply because today’s challenges are too complex to be fixed through a single scientific formula.
We say no to collapsology and prefer to consciously cultivate positivity.
We want to be architects of a better tomorrow, to design better prospects for people and ecosystems and to empower young talents into action. We believe in youth to aspire to a bright future and to contribute to the organization's decision-making process.
