Unlock Sustainable Ideas

You are keen to make your business more sustainable; or champion strategies for value beyond money. Yet peers are distracted and the organisation moves slowly.

Quicken your move to better business

Our Unlock Sustainable Ideas programme is a private consulting relationship where you can tackle your questions about the firm’s climate or social impact. Within four months you will complete the business case, win colleagues’ support and advance change.

Why this matters

To be ‘sustainable’, to thrive into the future, a business today has to pursue three ambitions in an ethical manner:

Generate wealth
Reduce warming
Enhance society

Our aim is to help companies respond to calls from shareholders, employees and customers for business that makes more than money. Already we see how slow responses to these new expectations are capsizing brand reputations and executive careers.

Yet change is hard. These questions are complex. Demands for current products and near-term profit can bind companies to outdated strategies. Busy leaders find that ‘the day-job’ leaves little room for fresh thinking.

What we offer

For executives and senior managers, the programme challenges you to forge ahead with your good ideas. Our resources equip you to progress from ‘we really should be doing this’ to clear action within three to four months.

Private consulting
One-to-one (plus your team members as needed), confidential, 3–4 hours per month.

Expert perspectives
Fresh, competitive insights from members of our diverse and qualified network.

Inspiration workshop
A half-day workshop where stakeholders examine how to achieve your ambitions.

Peer learning
Chatham House breakfast / dinner events with peers and expert speakers on agreed topics.

How you benefit

Unlock is a space to step back and clarify ideas for more sustainable business. Our approach covers all important angles and ensures you meet your own (we trust ambitious) deadlines.

Novel perspectives from outside experts strengthen your team’s position. The workshop helps you inspire colleagues, gain support and advance your plans. Private events allow you to share experiences with peers from other companies.
