Delivering responsible business and human flourishing
Established in 2004, we are a management consultancy working with international companies to implement their social sustainability strategies, aligned with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs) and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). When human rights are realised, people not only survive, but have the chance to grow and flourish. Whether our focus is vulnerable workers in supply chains, working in partnership with our clients, or how we deal with each other, human flourishing is at the heart of all we do. For us, this is central to 'positive impact'.
