Uncovering Sustainability Potential

April 1st, 2010

At Vivian Partnership we deliver real commercial success by uncovering sustainability potential.

We work with what is already in place within businesses and brands.By exploiting it we can unlock a desire to develop a robust sustainable approach to business.The majority of businesses have a considerable depth of activities in the sustainability area.

Many however are unrecognised, seen as peripheral and unconnected to the rest of the business. By identifying and highlighting them a coordinated and powerful approach can be developed, working with the reality of the business and taking it forward.

We are a sustainable business consultancy based on fact and outcome, where sustainable development needs to be the clear result of actions not vague ambitions.

We are entering an era where sustainability is no longer peripheral to businesses and organisations, but where it is central to their successes.

We help clients find the right path to being more sustainable. Our approach fuses the worlds of technical sustainability with branding, marketing and communications. It delivers effective solutions deepening understanding, building trust and delivering commercial returns.

We start by asking two simple questions:

how sustainable are you at doing what you do?

how much is known about how sustainable your activities and products are?

The answers provide a clear perspective and starting point from which ideas and actions will flow.

We start at the bottom and work up, uncovering truths and details and aiming to connect all business functions. This provides confidence and trust for organisations who want their sustainability to make a difference; whether working in a B2B or a B2C environment.

The considerations take into account all components of sustainability and green marketing including Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), carbon footprint, energy usage, waste disposal, recycling, community development, supply chain control, natural resource usage, environmental policy and biodiversity consideration. And link them to commercial ambitions and targets.

The methodology provides a clear starting point and a road map to deliver the ambitions of the organisation by balancing sustainability practices with their communication. The emphasis is on clarity and transparency, so green marketing and sustainability stories can be told and celebrated with confidence and risks reduced.

Contact us now if:

you have made a start on the sustainability journey, but have stalled because you are unsure what to do next…

you have great products but are not sure how to create the right messages…

you have customers who are setting ever higher standards of performance…

We will look forward to embarking on a very rewarding journey together

    It is fantastic to leave a seminar feeling inspired and full of practical ideas. Thursday’s oomph seminar did exactly that, Ben and Dan are naturals at putting an audience at ease which meant real participation from the group. As environmental professionals often form a one person team, it is fantastic to share a room with like minded individuals from local businesses who have faced and tackled similar challenges and can offer insight and advice. Eagerly anticipating the next installment of Oomph!

    Thank you both for inviting us to today’s Oomph seminar. From our point of view, we found the stimulus material and subsequent debate insightful from a sustainability perspective, but also in a wider context applicable to the successful deployment of general business initiatives.

    Really enjoyed this morning. I have attended very few seminars over the past two years simple because they are all too similar, often the the same speakers and follow the same theme. Today was most importantly enjoyable, interesting and got the brain cells working. I like small groups with variety of people and backgrounds.
