Partnering with business for purpose

We believe the best work is done in partnership. As a charity as well as a consultancy, we're committed to providing independent, ethical advice. We work closely with businesses to unlock their intention and translate it into practical application.

Driven by impact

Our work enables companies to make the social and environmental commitments that fulfil their purpose – in ways that matter to them, their customers and their employees.

Central to our approach is the belief that impact is critical to deliver meaningful change. We focus on applying impact thinking and models to a business context.

We act as a guide and critical friend to clients. Helping them to unlock the right discussions, simplify complex thinking and put recommendations into practice.

How we help our clients

We believe that purpose is central for businesses to achieve transformational change in society.

Our experience has shown that the most effective way to integrate an authentic sense of purpose is to build ownership amongst key stakeholders and help them root this in a real work context.

We work with our clients to build their purpose strategy, generate stakeholder buy-in and deliver high-impact programmes.
