Siempre uses a unique and systematic ‘roadmap’ approach to measurably and consistently increase organisational efficiency, customer engagement, brand value and profitability at all stages of your business cycle – from service delivery to production and distribution.
The ‘Discover’ phase of your journey towards sustainability begins with a comprehensive market review:
What are your competitors doing in sustainability?
What are your customers’ expectations?
What’s the legislative and regulatory environment?
What are the macro and local market trends?
Following this, we undertake an extensive 'materiality assessment', which examines your full resourcing landscape – including packaging and process, where applicable – to uncover opportunities to lower your environmental impact, increase efficiencies, improve economic outcomes, build brand value and enhance your reputational resilience.
Socialisation and buy in are critical components of our overall approach, so we take your staff through an education process to introduce them to sustainability concepts, market trends and your audit results in order to ensure their engagement and commitment to your journey ahead.
The ‘Develop’ phase is focused on producing your sustainability strategy and roadmap.
We use a workshop approach to draw on all elements of your value chain to create goals, strategies and specific action plans. The output is a multiyear plan which integrates with the other elements of your strategic plan.
The ‘Execution’ phase involves designing and sourcing new solutions, allocating plans to staff, and mentoring and coaching them to achieve their targets.
A key output of the execution phase is regular communication with your staff, customers and other stakeholders covering progress against the targets.
‘Monitoring’ builds on the coaching/mentoring cycle and circles back to the original sustainability mapping to evaluate your progress with that of your competitors, and determine the degree to which you’re delivering to customer expectations.
Your sustainability roadmap has three main components:
Sustainability is a self-perpetuating cycle
Siempre’s approach is fundamentally one of methodical continuous improvement.
We analyse and identify your opportunities, and develop rationales and process efficiencies to address issues as they arise.
We test solutions and change propositions, generally on a small scale, and rigorously measure the outcomes.
We then analyse the results, validate the effectiveness and scalability of the proposed solutions, and support your Executive and Governance functions to implement and embed your new, sustainable policies, practices and processes.
Customised models for ongoing knowledge management, process innovation and reporting are then developed to support the application of Siempre’s systematic approach to sustainability into the future.
