We deliver powerful implementation of multi-stakeholder initiatives
In sustainability, sustaining frontrunner advantages requires implementing the right governance structures and strong and agile backbone organizations to facilitate collective action and accountability amongst stakeholders. However, after design and approval, the implementation of a multi-stakeholder strategy is often underestimated. Complex challenges arise: How do you build the right governance structures and ensure a strong backbone organization can keep momentum? How do you ensure that all stakeholders feel involved and that you are still able to move forward agilely? How do you build revenue models that ensure the long-term sustainability of your initiative beyond the initial phase of grant-based funding or membership fees? How do you collaborate with other initiatives and identify synergies and interdependencies?
Neutral and professional implementation and delivery of your multi-stakeholder strategy is crucial. In fact, well set-up, efficiently lead and run, back bone organizations of multistakeholder sustainability strategies will: accelerate effective delivery and create more impact, will significantly lower costs, will build credibility and presence, will help scale efforts and will help build massive marketing and communication value on sustainability. It also requires staying on top of game as a driver of change and to seek collaboration with other initiatives seeking synergies as much as possible.
