A Service Path for Sustainable Business
The Natural Step Canada has worked with hundreds of businesses worldwide to inform their sustainability strategy and action. The Natural Step Framework—our framework for strategic sustainable development—provides a scientifically-sound foundation to credibly establish a robust vision of sustainability from which to evaluate current performance and develop innovative strategies.
Our Service Path for Sustainable Business
Based on this framework, we have developed a comprehensive, phased approach to help your business understand and use sustainability to drive innovation and value creation. Our Service Path is predicated on three sequential questions:
For each phase, we may draw on a series of specialist organizations to partner with us, helping your business capture maximum value for each phase of your sustainability journey.
Progress from one stage to the next is determined by a "go/no-go" decision based on output from the previous phase. This enables our partners to see the benefits of where they are coming from, while making a considered decision on where they are going.
Where do we start?
If your business is near the beginning of its sustainability journey, continue to phase 1: What is the value of a strategic commitment to sustainability?
