INTEGRATION of Sustainability
Supporting companies and investors to create societal value and business value by aligning sustainability ambitions with business strategies
The positive impacts story
We want to support the transformation to a truly sustainable global economy and know that this will need a much better integration and honest collaboration between all companies, investors, governments, and citizens. Businesses that thrive in a future sustainable society will have governance for profitability and governance for sustainability combined as an integrated element driving their fortunes. This is the point from which PI starts – we are driven to build the architecture that enables tomorrow’s success. Each one of us at PI is a success story in our individual careers and we have all decided to pull together our strengths to drive the sustainability integration of the future.
After two decades of advising major global companies on existing sustainability standards, Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) criteria and strategy integration, Martin, the main founder of PI, decided a new, practical and more ambitious approach was needed. Typical ESG guidance has led to companies check boxes and “run” after reporting requirements, and consultants develop a strategy for every “hot topic” that comes up. Thus, they never quite tapped into the transformative and highly needed potential of ESG.
Hence the founding of positive impacts (PI) and the new approach it introduces. We are the support system behind managers and leaders on their path to integrate sustainability / ESG and transform companies, value chains and the eco-system around them.
