What stories of change do you tell your customers, stakeholders and employees? How do you collect the data that matters to your business?
More and more organisations are making a real effort to do business sustainably, but many don’t have the capabilities to measure their impact and tell the world about their achievements. If you’d like to better understand and show the impact you make, we can help. Just email us:
FLOCERT combines industry-leading technical infrastructure and a global network of auditors to check and make sense of your sustainability data. Ultimately, we will help you answer an important question:
Is your sustainability program making an impact?
Wherever you are on your sustainability journey, we'll support you to start measuring and communicating your impact. If you're just setting out we can work with you from start to finish to develop a comprehensive impact measurement program. Or, if your organisation is already practicing sustainably, we can tailor a measurement framework around your existing structures.
There are six key steps to measuring and communicating your impact. We can support you through each, or you can choose the individual modules that would be most useful to your business, right now.
- The six levels of Impact Measurement:
- Envision – Where does your business fit into the bigger picture? How can you drive impact along your supply chains? What kind of relationships do you have with your key stakeholders? What's your current approach to sustainability? We'll start by exploring questions like these together to build a shared understanding of what's possible for your organisation.
- Design – We'll support you to set up a Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEL) framework to track your company's performance against set objectives. Then we'll create a framework to measure your overall impact. This framework will set out exactly what impact-specific data you'll need to collect.
- Measure – It's time to start gathering data. Our specialist IT consultancy will help you set up clever mobile devices, online platforms and virtual interfaces so that your data can be easily collected and analysed.
- Verify – To build trust in your sustainability program, it needs to be independently verified. We'll work with you to design a cost-efficient approach to verification that's right for you.
- Reflect – We'll never use a cookie cutter approach when it comes to evaluating your data. Instead, we'll carefully consider the context of your business, and offer unique insight into your sustainability practices based on our long experience working across global supply chains. At this point you can show your customers, partners and stakeholders our clean, accessible reports, and use the clear messages we produce to talk confidently about the real impact of your sustainability drive.
- Integrate – Now's the time to be proud of what you've already achieved, and make plans to even further in the future. We'll work with you to design a robust learning framework that'll support the continuous improvement of your sustainability program.
