Aligning a sustainability strategy across stakeholders

Client – Consumer healthcare organisation

Challenge and approach

Our client, a newly formed Sustainability team in the early stages of designing their sustainability strategy, required support to rapidly accelerate its development for communication to the Board. We provided support to agree and document the sustainability strategy, implement an effective programme structure, and create a delivery roadmap to achieve the team’s strategic goals and objectives.


An agreed execution roadmap and understanding of key priorities and timelines. Clarity within the Sustainability team on the key activities and sequencing to implement the strategy, where there will be demand on the business and the investment and resource required. More efficient and streamlined governance structures and processes, incorporating agile methodology and behaviours, to drive and demonstrate progress in a regular and transparent manner.
