We work to meet our mission by:
Thinking: promoting guidelines about sustainable social, economic and environmental development.
Learning: delivering awareness-raising, training and other educational activities.
Doing: offering mentorship and support during project delivery.
Evidence-based approach: ensuring that our actions are based on evidence and case studies.
Advocacy: promoting the benefits of a sustainable approach.
We aim to:
Define and promote exemplar sustainable development (integrated and holistic). Because we consider limited understandings of sustainability a major challenge to our mission. Examples of highly sustainable projects are needed.
Build capacity among clients, investors and their advisers. Because poor delivery ca-pabilities, especially among clients, beneficiaries and investors undermine any developmental effort.
Bring together leading organizations and leaders to explore innovative solutions to social, ecological and economic challenge. Because we observe a lack of joined-up thinking to bring about change.
Given the challenges and aims identified previously, our objectives are to work in partnership with other leading organizations to help:
Identify innovations and solutions for a sustainable future.
Increase knowledge and understanding of sustainability.
Challenge and enable clients to deliver a step change in real-life sustainable perfor-mance.
Demonstrate that whole-life value can be achieved through a holistic sustainable approach.
Inspire behaviour that will create sustainable communities and lifestyles.
Encourage and support sustainable and community-empowering projects
