Our approach to business assessment is at the proof of concept stage, and available to companies registered in the UK, at no cost. We'd welcome feedback as we continue to develop.
“Create simpler engagement mechanisms for SMEs to engage with Net Zero (and broader sustainable issues across social value frameworks). Barriers of time and cost should be addressed to encourage businesses to begin their transformational journey....less than 10% of UK SMEs currently attempt to measure their carbon emissions, progress needs to be made quickly to deliver Net Zero”
“Mission Zero, Independent Review of Net Zero, Chris Skidmore MP
Organisational performance data, rather than promises, are analysed to estimate when an organisation will hit Net Zero and social value targets.
Friction causes delays and barriers to engagement. We aim to create a frictionless experience minimising time investment and frustration.
Expressed as a simple, easily communicable, dial device, a “date” reflects progress to meeting targets, as well as indicating the amount of data or verification provided, to prevent greenwashing.
New data creates new “dates”, removing lengthy & costly review processes, with action improving an estimation, rather than waiting for lengthy review processes.
Expectations of businesses to act "sustainably" are increasing, but many assessment approaches are subjective, interpreting future promises into today's rating. By focusing on available performance trends, and reporting on available data, we reflect both commitment to action and transparency.
Not all businesses have gathered the data suitable for assessment, but that should not hinder the start of their journey. We advocate the use of appropriate benchmarks to guide initial engagement, rather than wait for a perfect data world to exist. It won't.
As well as assessing business progress, we curate resources that will allow them to progress along their sustainable journey, be that from educational, financial, accreditation or partnership viewpoints.
