Three changemakers are CEO for a day at NewForesight

http://eepurl.com/dckNj9Three high-potential changemakers in the agri-food sector visited our office today to share some thoughts with our CEO and Founder, Lucas Simons. A great learning experience!

For starters, these changemakers are not new to the world of sustainability. Daniela Rojas (Sustainable Business Advisor at Nature’s Pride), Pieter van Hout (Project Lead Innovation at ZLTO) and Susan Drion (Intern strategic projects at Triodos) know each other of the Slow Food Youth Network (SFYN) and are listed in the Food100.  This list counts 100 influential changemakers in food sustainability both below as above the age of 30. Today, this new generation got to chance to learn the ropes in becoming future CEO’s in the field of sustainability.

But what does this next generation want to learn about working in sustainability? The answer surprised us. Instead of tagging along to the meetings we have with clients here at NewForesight, the group decided they wanted a four hour long meeting with Lucas to discuss setting up your own business and how to incorporate personal development.

Pieter: “I am specifically interested in food systems and how to transform them towards better outcomes. This starts from the more abstract, but leads to more concrete steps to take. This is interesting to me. Most beneficial for me is to learn how I can set up my own business that contributes to a more sustainable food system.”

Susan: “I agree with Pieter. I find systems thinking very interesting, this is something we apply within the Slow Food Youth Network as well. For systems thinking, of course,  Lucas is the one to go to. I’m very happy to have had the chance to talk more thoroughly about his vision on sustainable food systems.”

Lucas, as our ‘Chief Inspiration’, did not disappoint: “It was a very open conversation and he gave many insights on how to set your path as a changemaker”, Daniela mentioned. We as NewForesight believe we will hear more from these three young, entrepreneurial people and look forward to meeting them as the CEO’s of frontrunning organizations in the future.

Collaborating with ICCO on the most interactive edition of World Cocoa Conference

Picture by ICCO

How to engage 1500 cocoa stakeholders from over 60 countries all with different viewpoints and interests and still create a common vision and agenda that accelerates action? This was the challenge we were faced with in supporting the facilitation of the 4th World Cocoa Conference.

It should come as no surprise for you that the cocoa sector is facing a number of severe sustainability challenges. Already for more than 15 years, the sectors largest stakeholders are struggling to turn this around. The challenges in cocoa are systemic in nature and therefore require a sector-broad and world-wide coordinated approach that understands the root causes of unsustainable outcomes. One organization dedicated to achieve better outcomes is the International Cocoa Organization, (ICCO); a global organization that represents governments of cocoa producing and consuming countries and, among other things, coordinates countries’ production policies and programs.

The ICCO organizes bi-annual World Cocoa Conferences attended by all stakeholder groups (government, industry, civil society, academia, financial institutions and farmers) from as many as 65 countries. This conference is a major event that convenes the sector to set the agenda, discuss challenging topics and indicate next steps on the road towards sustainability. A great opportunity to trigger collaboration in the sector and to collectively set measurable goals. NewForesight was given the assignment to co-organize and facilitate the fourth World Cocoa Conference on 23-25 April 2018 in Berlin with a new, interactive and actionable format.

A content driven and actionable agenda for the cocoa sector

What does the World Cocoa Conference need, in order to accelerate sector change? At NewForesight we support our clients to develop approaches to tackle complex sustainability challenges: such strategies often including defining a vision, setting clear roles & responsibilities and monitoring and evaluating progress (see also our blog on the Six Key Elements of Sustainable Transformation). Therefore, NewForesight was delighted to accept the invitation by ICCO to make the 2018 World Cocoa Conference more high-energy, interactive and action-oriented, leveraging the input of the audience on the critical issues the sector is faced with.

How did we include the audience of the conference in decision making and agenda setting? With Lucas’ moderation, the use of polling technology and through interactive and engaging breakout formats, it was ensured that each participant could contribute. Such participant engagement enabled ICCO to directly integrate input from the audience into the Berlin Declaration; the policy document presented at the end of the conference.

Our team, consisting of Lucas Simons, Renée Engelsman and Marlien Sneller, looks back to a successful conference where cocoa stakeholders added their critical perspectives and together formed an energized crowd dedicated towards action, and so did our client. We are looking forward to seeing the bi-annual World Cocoa Conferences becoming increasingly central and actionable towards guiding the progress needed within the sector.

Young Agents of Change Event: Meeting 23 high-potential sustainability changemakers

What does it mean to be a sustainability consultant? What do these people do in their daily job?

Many graduates and young professionals are driven to work on sustainability often find themselves asking these questions. NewForesight offered 23 high-potential young professionals a chance to find an answer to these questions during the Young Agents of Change event that took place on Friday, May 18.

As a BCorp, we are serious about creating shared opportunities, not only for our business but also for the world at large. We generously share our knowledge through blogs and articles, and this time we share it with the new generation of sustainability professionals. An opportunity to ‘Grow, learn and always develop’; something we strongly value as a company.

Inspirational talks and real-life cases

23 high-potentials from very diverse backgrounds gained a sneak-peak into the life of a sustainability consultant during a full-day crash course of NFC theory and practice.

The day started with an inspiring talk by NewForesight CEO, Lucas Simons, who explained the concept of market transformation that NewForesight has applied in many sectors across the world together with front-runner companies and organizations. Lucas also stressed the positive impact that young people can make in a world that is in serious need of thoughtful interventions.

Senior Consultant Will Saab presented a few examples of sustainability consulting projects, from building farmer economic models to developing high-level strategies together with our clients. Former Junior Analyst, Andrea Viviers, shared her experiences of being a Young Agent of Change at NewForesight. She started as a Junior Analyst and now works as an Analyst at the company for the last year. Before the participants were presented with the real-life cocoa sustainability cases, NewForesight Consultant Guus ter Haar gave a crash course on effective feedback and presentation techniques, which are essential skills for consultants.

The participants were then challenged to put theory into practice by cracking their own real-life cocoa sustainability cases. In a short time, they had to grasp the idea behind NewForesight’s methodologies and had to report back their findings to the fictitious client, the ‘Willy Wonka Chocolate Company’. Don’t let this name fool you, it represents the dedicated type of client NewForesight works with that holds a critical eye to making sustainability change in an effective way. The ‘Willy Wonka Chocolate Company’ therefore was not looking for a “quick fix”, but an integrated solution that leverages continuous impact in the long run. A true challenge for the participants!

High-potential sustainability change agents

We were thrilled to see all changemakers working hard to wrap their head around the complex cases, in a very collaborative way. The quality of their work was stunning; they proved to be a promising group of high-potential changemakers who are driven to tackle complex sustainability challenges. Following the event we were happy to hear the Young Agents of Change where able to learn from the experience and will apply the NewForesight-consulting skills in the future:

“The case study practice gave great insights on the types of information and challenges a consultant might face” – Robin Hooft van Huijsduijnen, MSc Sustainable Development

“I have been able to make use of many of the learnings already immediately during the week after the event” – Heidi Lampén, MSc Global Health, and Environmental Planning

 Creating shared opportunities together

We are looking back at a high-energy and exciting day that left both the participants and the NewForesight-team inspired, satisfied and driven to (continue to) make a change.

At NewForesight, we are excited to keep in touch with this new generation of change agents to use the knowledge gained from the Young Agents of Change event as a foundation in their quest of tackling the tough sustainability challenges of today, whether they will end up working at NewForesight or somewhere else.

Do you feel inspired?

Article – Connecting the dots: Progress measurement in the cocoa sector

Written by: William Saab (Senior Consultant), supported by Eva Schouten (Analyst).  Also posted on LinkedIn.

Reflecting on the 4th World Cocoa Conference in Berlin

The global cocoa sector agrees that there is a need for a more sustainable sector and that the sector faces critical and complex issues that we need to tackle collectively. This is the reason that 1,500 stakeholders, ranging from producers and producer organizations, civil society, private and public sectors of both origin and consuming countries, came together at the 4th World Cocoa Conference (WCC) in Berlin from 22-25 April. At this conference, I was asked to share recommendations in a plenary session on how the cocoa sector can start measuring progress towards becoming a more sustainable sector.

At the conference, I was inspired by honest and high-energy conversations. Various critical challenges of the sector were raised by different stakeholders, all with an interesting point of view. These topics included:

  • Living income
  • Diversification
  • Price volatility
  • Child labor
  • Productivity
  • Climate change
  • Policy and coordination

And of course many others.

Haven’t we heard all of this before?

Now let’s be honest, these topics are not new. The Cocoa Barometer, published by a global consortium of civil society organizations called The Voice Network, has outlined most of these challenges in each of the past three editions, including the recently published 2018 edition. Over the last few years, at conferences and in declarations, we have repeatedly talked about these topics. Below you see that for many of these issues, we have even been talking about them for more than 10 years:

Do you feel like playing cocoa bingo?

Of course new topics also arise, but in the cocoa sector we have been talking about many of the same issues for quite some time. Perhaps at the next World Cocoa Conference, we can hand out a bingo card to all participants and checkmark each of the familiar topics being raised.

Systemic challenges require systemic solutions

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mean to be negative. There is a reason why these challenges keep getting raised. These challenges are systemic in nature and therefore among the most complex challenges to solve, as they cannot be solved in isolation, and cannot be solved by one stakeholder alone. Take price for example: just increasing the farm gate price will almost certainly increase the amount of cocoa farmers and/or the hectares under cultivation, thereby increasing production, which would likely lower the price once again. Likewise, increasing yields might work for a small number of producers, but to be achieved at scale, it must be complemented with the creation of alternatives inside and outside of farming, as otherwise it will only lead to overproduction and price collapses.

Systemic issues are among the most complex to solve: they require a high level of coordination and a long term approach. As a senior consultant at NewForesight, I work on these kinds of challenges every day, across many different sectors. In our experience, to resolve these systemic challenges, broadly the same steps are needed, listed below as questions to be addressed:

Here comes the good news

What if I told you that we are already halfway there? Have you heard of the Global Cocoa Agenda? This document, essentially a roadmap towards a sustainable cocoa sector, was already agreed upon in 2012 by various stakeholders, including producers and producer organizations, governments, private sector and civil society. Its signatories include producer organizations, governments, traders, processors, brands, civil society, and industry associations and platforms. It already contains the first 4 of the 6 elements listed above. It outlines a vision for the sector (1) and identifies barriers (2) across four tracks – sustainable production, consumption, value chain and strategic management – which, not coincidentally, were also the four tracks used in the 2018 Berlin Declaration. The Global Cocoa Agenda goes further, and lists commitments and actions to tackle these challenges (3). It even allocates actions and commitments to different stakeholders, encompassing producing governments, consuming governments, private sectors, producers, civil society, and international organizations (4).

I’ve worked on systemic challenges in a lot of sectors, and I can tell you, this is pretty special. There aren’t many sectors out there where such a broad set of stakeholders has agreed on a common agenda as we have done within the cocoa sector.

Let’s start to connect the dots

In case you think I’m being too positive, let me state the obvious: it has been 6 years since the Global Cocoa Agenda was agreed upon and we continue to talk about the same issues without measuring or reporting progress at a sector level. This is not good for the credibility either of the Global Cocoa Agenda or of the cocoa sector’s commitments to sustainability.

While we are very focused on getting different stakeholders involved to set the agenda for a sustainable cocoa sector, the measurement of the progress and continuous learning – steps 5 and 6 above – are lacking. Already in 2009 at the second meeting of the Roundtable for a Sustainable Cocoa Economy in Trinidad and Tobago, the official declaration emphasized the importance “to develop a system of monitoring of activities aimed at achieving sustainability in the cocoa sector”. This has not happened yet.

The ICCO Consultative Board (mandated with monitoring and coordination of the Global Cocoa Agenda) and the ICCO Secretariat (the central coordination body to monitor effective implementation of the Global Cocoa Agenda) asked NewForesight to develop a Monitoring Framework for the Global Cocoa Agenda. To do this, we worked closely with a working group that includes different members of the ICCO Consultative Board: BDSIGISCO, the International Cocoa InitiativeUTZ, the VOICE Network, and the World Cocoa Foundation.

You may be thinking: do we really need another measuring framework? Do we really need more frameworks, more reporting, more indicators? While I agree that we don’t need yet another framework for the sake of having a framework, we do need accountability, transparency, and most importantly credibility when it comes to living up to our commitments towards a sustainable cocoa sector.

We have tried to avoid the risk of yet another framework that will not be implemented, by keeping this one simple, light, credible, insightful, and feasible.

In short, the monitoring framework we have created is designed to answer 2 questions:

  1. What is the state of the cocoa sector? Measured through impact indicators
  2. Are the various stakeholders living up to their commitments? Measured through action and commitment indicators

Impact indicators*

To measure the state of the cocoa sector, we have identified 12 indicators divided between the 4 tracks of the Global Cocoa Agenda. These indicators all come from existing sources, such as ICCO’s own statistical unit and the Cocoa Barometer.

Commitment indicators*

When looking at the commitments of the different stakeholders, most of the information comes from self-reporting on around 10 indicators per type of stakeholder, and based as much as possible on information that these stakeholders already measure.

Much exciting work is underway as I write this, for instance on deforestation (e.g., Cocoa and Forests Initiative) and living income (e.g., Living Income Community of Practice), and we have designed the GCA Monitoring Framework to be flexible and be able to incorporate new indicators as they are developed.

Cocoa Bingo and the Future

I am happy that the response to my presentation at the World Cocoa Conference was overwhelmingly positive and that the importance of monitoring and KPI measurement is mentioned directly in the 2018 Berlin Declaration. I hope that very soon the GCA Monitoring Framework will be formally approved and implemented, and that in the coming years it will continue to be adapted and used to remain relevant and impactful.

Of course we will continue to talk about the same issues for a while, as these issues will not be solved within the next couple of years. However, I hope that my presentation in Berlin (and this supporting article) will contribute to us looking more critically at the process we are making into solving them. I hope that from now on when challenges like child labor, deforestation and living income enter the conversation, the feeling of playing ‘cocoa bingo’ reminds us all to become evidence-based in solving them. And I hope that when the framework is properly implemented, it will lead not only to honest evaluations and what is working and what isn’t, but also transparency and accountability related to actions and commitments of the various stakeholders that will all need to contribute if we are to achieve a sustainable cocoa sector.

I sincerely hope that at the next World Cocoa Conference we can show real collective progress and results. In this way we can integrate the shared learnings and identified gaps and outcomes into the agenda and incorporate that in following declarations. This will open up an honest discussion about what worked and what did not work, which commitments have been met and which haven’t. And it will provide a much-needed boost of credibility to the various commitments and strategies in the cocoa sector.

If you are interested in making this happen, I urge you to make your voice heard, via the ICCO Consultative Board.

This is an outline of a presentation I gave at the World Cocoa Conference in Berlin on the 25th of April 2018. Want to continue the conversation? Let us know your thoughts either via the comments below or contact me via email, atwilliam.saab@newforesight.com

The Global Cocoa Agenda Monitoring Framework is under a final review by the ICCO Consultative Board and some indicators may still be changed, removed or added

CEO Lucas Simons contributed to Round table conversation in the Dutch parliament

Last Thursday, CEO Lucas Simons took part in the Round table conversation with the Dutch parliament on ‘Food: Sustainable and healthy choices for consumption’. Representatives of all political parties attended this hearing with experts on food policy, behavioral sciences, food supply chain and the relationship between farmer and citizen. During the conversation, Lucas explained how we can accelerate the transition by collectively striving for an industry that respects the limitations of our planet, while having a net-positive impact.

NewForesight contributed with this position paper on ‘The chain: Food in relation to agriculture’. It argues that any Agri-Food transformation must meet the 6 key elements of market transformation. Only a 3-page read. Enjoy!

NewForesight Insight: Driving the transition towards sustainability

Are you struggling to find effective ways to tackle complex sustainability challenges?

At NewForesight we use our frameworks and models to analyze pathways for change. This first of four NewForesight Insights introduces a powerful system thinking tool: the Sustainable Transformation Curve (‘S-Curve’) and the associated Market Transformation Matrix.

This cornerstone ‘phases thinking’ framework helps change makers understand how an agricultural sector’s progress towards sustainability is not linear, but instead a dynamic process consisting of four phases of ‘maturity’: (i) Inception; (ii) First movers; (iii) Critical mass; and (iv) Institutionalization. These models equip you with the required frame of mind to think in terms of systemic change, to recognize what phase specific sectors are in, and to devise strategies that recognize and leverage the dynamics of a sector to catalyze the transition towards the next phase.

This NewForesight Insight is complemented by an illustrated overview of the theory that is the ideal tool to accompany discussions and brainstorms on driving sustainable change.

Meet our Young Agent of Change: Marlien Sneller

You must be thinking: who are those Young Agents of Change anyway? Meet the current Junior Analyst at NewForesight: Marlien Sneller! Motivated to increase the link between science and society, she took TU Delft’s master on Science Communication, where system thinking is the main approach for analyzing and facilitating innovation and knowledge sharing within and between organizations. At the start of 2018, Marlien joined the NewForesight team as a Junior Analyst and we asked her what life at NewForesight is like.

Why did you attend the Young Agent of Change event?

Because the YAoC event is all about making an impact. That triggered my personal desire; to positively contribute to the world through my career. NewForesight has a real ambition to leverage sustainability with a business case behind it. This makes it sustainable from scratch.

What was most memorable about the YAoC event for you?

I was really grasped by the Market Transformations theory. As it is very meta-level and standardized, you can recognize it everywhere in daily life or when you turn on the news. More and more I start to notice market dynamics and the barriers that withhold sustainability to be reached at scale.

What did you expect from the Junior Analyst program?

I expected that I would be able to work as a junior in a team, doing consultancy work and learn a lot in the meantime. That I can ask a lot of questions and learn from others. Many people here are good at things I want to grow into, so I am very eager to pick their brains.

Does the JA program live up to that expectation?

There is a lot of space to grow here. I am surprised that the focus is very much on learning and reading up on old projects, for example. I think there is a lot of room to develop the skills that I want to work on.

 What do you think of the NewForesight-team?

From the first day, everyone has been so nice! Every colleague has complete different backgrounds, but all share the passion to create positive change in their own way. Everyone is driven, hard working and pushing themselves to grow. The added value of NewForesight I think is that the consultants are all very unique and not mainstream. Some are geeky, others have next level social skills, everyone has an extraordinary contribution to the team. This makes me feel very comfortable to bring my own unique skill set.

 What is more difficult?

I think the difficult thing is that I want to learn so much and as I see so different types of projects pass by, I sometimes want to do too many things at the same time. So I need to remind myself to not want to do everything at once.

Ok, here’s a dilemma: Working on systemic sustainability challenges or working with the NewForesight team?

This is a difficult one. I am really driven by the theory of systems change and would not want to work in tackling issues at symptom level only. I could not let it go. But I am definitely sure that I only want to work with a dedicated team like this. For the complex projects we work on, such dedication is needed.

 What would you still like to experience while working at NewForesight?

I could imagine putting Market Transformation thinking into practice in other sectors than food- and agriculture. I can see market transformation thinking being applied in fast moving consumer goods as well for instance. Something that has led to the new publication NewForesight is developing together with Nyenrode. I am excited to work on systemic sustainability challenges in an increasing amount of sectors at NewForesight.

What would you advise new Young Agents of Change that will be coming to the event?

I would advise being very critical about organizations in the sustainability field that you would like to contribute your energy too. There are many organizations around that just focus on symptoms and work without a clear theory of change. Try to connect with people that share your mindset and ambition and ask a lot of questions!

Convinced that you could be our new Junior analyst? Come to our Young Agent of Change event on the 8th of May! At this interactive day, young professionals work on real-life sustainability cases together with NewForesight Consultants. Register for the event here
