Why be sustainable?

Sustainability is no longer just a buzzword, it’s a necessity for businesses to thrive in today’s world. Not only is it the right thing to do for the planet, but there is also a strong case for building business resilience. By implementing sustainable practices, businesses can reduce their impact on the environment, improve their bottom line, and create a positive social impact. The three key drivers for becoming sustainable are:

Customer Demand

If you are in a supply chain, then you are likely to have been asked to provide your sustainability credentials or evidence of your GHG emissions so customers can satisfy their Scope 3 requirements.

s

Compliance

Legislation is already impacting on larger companies who are legally required to report their impacts and emissions. This will soon apply to all businesses, including SMEs and micro companies.

Reputation

Investors, employees, customers, consumers, and communities have higher expectations that companies will be ethical and responsible. If they are not, these companies risk damaging their reputation and brand image.

Or do you simply want to do the right thing?

Here’s how we can help…

A Strategic Business Review

Sustainability Staircase – Assessing where you are now and where you want to be.

Our team of experts is here to take you through a comprehensive Strategic Business Review. This review will consist of a detailed analysis of your business and its sustainability credentials, in addition to assessing your sustainability goals and objectives.

We will explore any gaps in current operations and research and analyse your markets and market position. We will then use this information to uncover potential business opportunities and risks so that you can be sure your business is on the right path to success.

Our combination of consultancy and online learning support ensures that you have the resources you need to reach your goals.

DEVELOP

A Robust Sustainability Strategy

Once the review is complete, Wylde will produce an Internal Sustainability Strategy and Action Plan. We will then work closely with you and your teams to create a professionally crafted External Sustainability Plan and Road Map tailored to your business and showcasing your brand identity.

A gap analysis from the previous sessions will help us to develop an Action Plan and Road Map. This will outline the key actions that need to be taken and the timeframe for completion, taking into account available resources.

The success of any Sustainability Strategy depends on everyone being on board. During this phase, it is important to involve stakeholders. We will work with you to identify who your key stakeholders are and what involvement they will need to have in the project.

Rob Barlow, TDP Ltd

I did not hold out much hope of benefiting when Joining a webinar in July 2021 organised by our bank. The topic was ‘Achieving Net Zero in Manufacturing’ however a keynote speech by Denise Taylor, Managing Director at Wylde Connections made me sit up and take notice. Not only was Denise well versed in sustainability, it was the no nonsense way that Denise made a case of why businesses should adopt a strategy that would put growth and profit centre stage, at the same time making sustainability a core driver for brand creditability in the future.

We started working with Wylde Connections soon after the event and over a year later have come to trust and respect Denise and the rest of the team.

Taking the time to understand our business and what drove us enabled Denise and her team to guide and work with us to refocus our strategy. Forward facing documents and digital marketing produced by Wylde has resulted in increased sales and brand awareness. Internal documents and team engagement has improved productivity and creativity. Everyone in TDP has benefitted from the relationship and we have tremendous vision and drive for the future through our work with Wylde Connections.

Andy Moon, The P & M Group

You employ a consultancy to fill a gap in your own knowledge, without which you wouldn’t be able to progress. When we looked for support to guide us through the process of writing our own sustainability strategy I’m so glad we found Denise Taylor and the team at Wylde Connections. They have provided us with the knowledge, tools and the confidence to believe we can make a difference.

Frequently asked questions

What is an ESG strategy?

An ESG strategy provides your business with a practical plan to put the three pillars of sustainability – Environmental, Social and Governance – at the heart of your operation. It provides businesses with a framework to set their priorities and collect data to track and report on progress. The strategy allows companies to measure their impact on each of the pillars and identifies ways to mitigate risks and drive positive interventions that benefit the triple bottom line of people, profit and planet.  

What do sustainability consultants do?

A sustainability consultant is a trusted partner that supports your company in meeting its ESG objectives. They help navigate the ever-shifting landscape of sustainability requirements and regulations and maximise the benefits of being an ethical and responsible business. As a strategic ally, they interrogate your business operations and provide expert guidance in developing and implementing a comprehensive sustainability strategy, action plan and road map.

Does my business need a Net Zero strategy?

Although sustainability is about more than decarbonisation, working towards meeting our Net Zero commitments is critical. To be a sustainable business you should measure, track and report on your Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions. You can then set ambitious but achievable targets to reduce your carbon footprint. This will not only help you respond to pressure from regulators and customers but will also give you a competitive advantage by reducing costs and driving efficiencies.

How do I become sustainable?

The first step to becoming a sustainable business is to understand your current position. You can achieve this by taking a deep dive into your operations and analyse everything you do through a sustainability lens. Understand the impacts you are having and what is important, or material, to your various stakeholders. Use this to shape your priorities so that you can devise a strategy that reduces negative impacts on people and planet whilst highlighting opportunities for positive interventions.

What are Carbon Calculations?

Carbon calculations are what we use to measure the carbon footprint of your business. It is important to establish this baseline of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions so that you have the information you need to set targets for decarbonisation and track progress along your sustainability journey. Calculations are split into three scopes encompassing the direct emissions your business causes through its operations, emissions from the energy you buy and indirect emissions from further down your value chain. There are a variety of carbon calculation tools and platforms available to provide you with the insight you need to make more sustainable choices and support the transition to Net Zero.
