The future of truly sustainable business? Meet the Future-Fit Business Benchmark.
Future-Fit Business Benchmark is the most ambitious sustainability management methodology available to guide companies and investors to a sustainable world. It is developed together with some of the world’s leading companies and investors, such as Mærsk, Novo Nordisk, Ørsted, Body Shop, and Hermes.
We have worked with various clients, including Coloplast and Hempel, to build their sustainability strategies based on Future-Fit. We also use the framework in our work with the financial sector to help transform how financial institutions generate and use ESG data.
Future-Fit is the only methodology linked to planetary boundaries, while still mapping the Sustainable Development Goals.
Future-Fit also helps to report under the new EU taxonomy for sustainable finance.
Future-Fit was created by the Future-Fit Foundation and you can access all of the resources open-source here.
Impact baseline analysis
In a workshop or process covering a few weeks, we use the methodology to create solid impact analyses, also called “materiality” analyses to base organisational decision-making on a solid data foundation.
Based on an analysis of our clients’ impacts, we help them define their key priority areas, initiatives, KPIs, business cases, and implementation timelines as part of their overall sustainability strategy.
Capacity building programme
As the leading Future-Fit consultancy, we’ve developed a range of tools and helpful approaches to working with the Future-Fit Business Benchmark. We support our clients in their Future-Fit journey by providing capacity building and equipping them to use our tools.
Corporate sustainability strategy development in the Medtech field
We have helped Coloplast through the full process of creating their new sustainability strategy, including a Future-Fit baseline assessment of their impacts, a collaborative process to set KPIs and targets, as well as developing a suite of initiatives and measures to reach those targets. Camilla Hjort Pagh, Coloplast’s SVP on Global Quality & Regulatory Affairs, had this to say: “Nordic Sustainability was a competent, passionate, and professional partner for us in the development of our sustainability strategy. They helped us reach a solid baseline understanding of our impacts and were integral in ensuring our efforts have a high ambition level.”
Pushing the sustainability agenda in the finance sector for impactful ESG management
Client: LD Fonde
LD Fonde is one of Denmark’s leading pension funds within sustainability and a Future-Fit Pioneer. We are collaborating with LD on a pilot program that aims for investee companies to adopt the Future-Fit Benchmark, and thereby integrate sustainability into their strategic decision-making on their way to becoming sustainable within planetary boundaries. For investors such as LD, the hope is to also get better ESG data. The project is running in 2020/21.
Future-Fit baseline assessment for chemical company
We supported the world-leading supplier of coating solutions, Hempel, in creating a solid baseline understanding of its sustainability impact, by performing a Future-Fit assessment. This has helped create a comprehensive and holistic understanding of sustainability among leadership and strengthened the drive and alignment in choosing priority areas to focus on going forward.
Redefining sustainability ambition with top Danish companies
Client: Global Compact Network Denmark
We partnered with Global Compact Network Denmark to create a conference around the Future-Fit Business Benchmark and corporate impact measurement. The overall goal of the day was to introduce 35+ Danish companies to Future-Fit, help them understand the methodology, and show how the framework redefines sustainability ambition. The conference had the founder of Future-Fit, Geoff Kendall, a panel debate with representatives from Ørsted and Novo Nordisk, and a workshop where the attending companies were quizzed on their understanding of how to make progress on the Break-Even Goals as well as discussing how companies can undertake the Positive Pursuits.
