Create a viable business case for sustainability and act on quantifiable results
Today, more and more organizations are concerned with finding the business case for sustainability, and are seeking evidence-based approaches to designing their sustainability interventions. Under which conditions can a cocoa farm be sustainable? What is the business case for nutrition interventions in the supply-chain? What is the optimal business model for delivering sustainability services to farmers and rural communities? The importance of sustainable business models that are powered by analytics and fueled by data driven projects is becoming increasingly apparent for businesses that aim to become sector front-runners. Donors, NGOs, governments, and private sector front-runners realize that solutions must have an economically sustainable basis to be viable in the long run.
Many sustainability challenges are rooted in economics, such as low prices, endemic poverty, and no pricing of negative externalities. In turn, these factors contribute to – and in many cases are at the root of – social and environmental challenges as well. At NewForesight, we believe that in many cases, the solution to these sustainability challenges should be market-based, and that opportunities exist not only to create more effective and scalable solutions, but also to open up possibilities for viable business models to deliver sustainability services. Where such a business case cannot be found, our evidence-based approach allows us to identify fundamental barriers to real sustainable outcomes, and determine how these barriers can be overcome. With a range of solutions, we enable our clients to tackle the fundamental causes of unsustainability and translate these into opportunities at the farm, business, national, and sector levels.
