Purpose & Sustainability Strategy

Each journey to building a purposeful business is unique. Our role is to enable you to create positive change and become a shared value business because we believe that purpose drives people, people build communities, and communities change the world. Barefoot Citizens Consulting works with you to help mobilise your people for greater impact.
We leverage what you already do to help grow your competitive advantage. Our proprietary suite of tools provides data-driven insights, engagement strategies and a roadmap to create impact.

ESG Frameworks

We believe that an effective, trackable ESG strategy should sit alongside your business and underpin your commercial strategy, not as a separate list of things to do.

Our ESG frameworks provide the guiding principles to help you create social and environmental impact, where, and as appropriate, throughout your supply chain. Our team will help you build, measure and implement tailored ESG strategies into your business. Barefoot Citizens’ ESG frameworks are underpinned by Key Purpose Indicators and a Net Purpose Score to enable you to measure and report your activities.

Impact & Shared Value Strategy

The economic benefits of social progress can be realised through our social impact frameworks and measurement methods.

Collaborating on the Theory of Change for your business, we will develop the right community investment strategy, implementation and measurement tools for your organisation.

Not-for-profit partnerships and place-based impact frameworks can also play a role in making your business a true agent of change.

Behaviour Change Management

We know that change in any business can be challenging, which is why we have developed a number of tools to help make change management simple and engaging.

Whether you are engaging your people for the first time in your sustainability journey or are honing in on specific ESG topics, our Learning and Development modules deliver real results, covering a range of topics from sustainability, ESG, modern slavery amongst others.

To engage your teams in a fun and interactive way, our conference and event workshops are ideal.  These tools help mobilise your people for greater impact.
