Networks and Partnerships for Sustainability: Briefing Paper
Earlier this year, we invited senior people from companies based in Bristol and the South West to come together and share how they use data to aid them with sustainability targets.
In the last of our three sustainability briefing papers, we ask our selected organisations to discuss the various networks and partnerships available within the sustainability space.
There is a multitude of sustainability routes available to organisations, and it’s not always clear which one to choose.
In this report, we:
- Look at how to source businesses that share your sustainability values.
- Suggest ways of creating sustainability led internal culture.
- Provide a handy network sustainability resource guide to get you started.
Funding for Sustainability Briefing Paper
In the second of our three briefing papers around sustainability, we ask our selected organisations to discuss their experiences around sourcing incentives and gaining finance to implement their sustainability plans.
With sustainability becoming a top-of-mind concern for individuals, organisations and governments alike, there are increasing ways of accessing funding for sustainability-related projects.
In this report, we cover how:
- Sustainability and efficiency are inextricably linked.
- To navigate the confusing government funding landscape.
- Partnership working can increase funding and learning opportunities.
- To source cost-saving schemes at a local as well as national level.
- How to measure and report on your sustainability impacts to help gain more funding.
- To use incentives to motivate customers and suppliers.
Data Driven Sustainability Briefing Paper
In the first of our three briefing papers around sustainability, we ask our selected organisations to share how they collect and analyse emissions data for their organisation.
It seems that, when it comes to sustainability, data is critical.
In this report, we examine how data:
- Can help us to understand patterns of consumption
- Can be used to incentivise and nudge customers and organisations to make better choices around sustainability
- Can help to build and measure services based entirely around sustainable solutions
Post-COVID Recruitment: Briefing Paper
In the third of our three briefing papers, we ask our selected organisations to contemplate how, once COVID restrictions have eased, we will find and successfully integrate new talent into organisations where people no longer share the same physical space.
Signs point to a significant shift in how work and home are structured.
In this report, we examine:
- How previous geographical constraints have been transformed by the pandemic
- How the magnetic appeal of big cities may be losing some of their power
- How a larger virtual talent pool also means increased competition for the right people.
