Our core values
All businesses should be a force for good. We promote the values of business as a force for good, demonstrate our responsibility to people, our planet and the economy. We create shared value with all our stakeholders.
We drive change. We do not waste time discussing problems. Instead, we focus all our energy describing what the ideal situation looks like. Then we work backwards, towards what is required to achieve the change we seek.
We embrace the spirit of interdependence, between people, planet & profit. We steer away from polarizing debates. We are all in the same boat,… and there are 17 holes (SDG’s) in the bottom. Let’s join forces and get to work!
Out of many we are one. We work as a team. We set the stage for each other. We recognize the strength of our differences. We proactively support each other, in every way we can, to achieve our collective goals.
The best ideas must win. No matter where they come from. It is not an idea until it is written down, backed by data and shared with your team.
The words we use matter. How we speak about ourselves and others, has a profound impact on how we are understood by and resonate with people. The voice of Sustainability Partner is informal, positive, supportive, and inclusive. We aim to follow these principles during all interactions, with every life we touch.
The way we listen matters. We really listen. Not to be able to speak ourselves, or to evaluate and judge what is being said based on our own frameworks. We listen to fully empathise with others and truly understand what drives them.
Sustainability is not about perfection, it’s about reliability. Our stakeholders must be able to trust us. That is why we commit to continuous improvement and share our progress to accelerate change transparently with all stakeholders at any given time.
