3BL Associates is in the business of true value creation for companies, society and our planet. We help organizations—large and small—capitalize on sustainability as an opportunity to generate social, environmental and economic prosperity, in tandem.
CSR & Sustainability Audit & Needs Analysis:
The audit helps an organization identify both lacking and existing CSR and sustainability initiatives—including those that it may not recognize as such.
Benchmarking & Research:
Identifying, researching and benchmarking across industry leaders; most successful models; geo-specific models; and for ambitious organizations: benchmarking against nature and life principles optimized models.
Stakeholder mapping and engagement are an integral part of social responsibility. This process identifies stakeholder priorities and issues of concern, improves decision-making, enhances transparency and accountability, manages risk, strengthens mutually beneficial relationships, and enhances reputation.
We work with organizations to develop a clear social responsibility and sustainability strategy, which is embedded in overall operations with milestones and measurable indicators.
CSR & Sustainability Initiatives Development:
We help organizations develop well-aligned initiatives that simultaneously generate business, social and environmental value.
We identify partnerships that leverage core strengths and resources, and connect cross-sector and cross-industry organizations—often ones that don’t see the link between each other—to create mutual benefit and further sustainable development.
Sustainability Monitoring & Reporting:
Monitoring and communicating your sustainability performance helps track progress, enhances transparency, promotes stakeholder engagement, and manages risks. We conduct sustainability reports according to the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) framework, providing disclosure on an extensive list of social, environmental and economic indicators.
Curriculum Development, Workshops & Training:
We develop programs and curricula to further the sustainable development agenda: social entrepreneurship, peace and tolerance; biomimicry; responsible leadership...We also facilitate training targeted towards various segments, including youth, business, civil society, and intergovernmental organizations.
How would nature approach behavioural, engineering, or design challenges that your organization is facing? With zero waste and closed loop cycles, nature operates at a level of efficiency humans are yet to achieve.
