FROM PURPOSE TO IMPACT

Do more and better within sustainability?

It's my experience that many companies would like to begin the journey towards becoming more sustainable, attain higher relevance for the customers & increase the financial bottomline.

Theres are so many areas to start changing or improve upon, that it becomes unclear, which actions should be prioritized, creating a lasting impact for the stake- and shareholders and even contribute positive to bio restoration and bio-diversity.

As a freelancer, I have been in dialogue with SaaS companies, ICT distributions, digital datacenters and SME´s, utilizing the dimensions in the method, which is applicable to SME´s, corporations and start-ups.

I have applied the methodology for these companies so far:

  1. A global marketleader within ICT distribution with potential 380 million end-customers.
  2. A start-up company within transport of water, famed from success of LIFESTRAW.
  3. A digital ecosystem, based in the SDG challenges, where I did UX and UI,
  4. Connecting impact investors, Nordic impact companies collaborating making sustainable businesses in a post-COVID landscape.

The conversations with these mentioned companies touched the themes below, which are solid starting points, but connect with me - and let's move forward!
