Through its superior ability to innovate, scale, and influence consumer behaviour, we firmly believe that the private sector holds the keys to solving the environmental crisis.
Our approach is guided by six key principles:
Today's 'sustainability' sector is cloaked in obscure jargon and complex frameworks. There are few universally agreed conventions, and for the average business owner, there is a distinct lack of clarity. At Intaconnected we endeavor to assimilate and simplify the world's leading processes and frameworks into a clear, user friendly guide that covers the full spectrum of a company's impact on Nature and society.
Our Impact Framework was purposely created to measure and 'cancel' a company's true footprint across all relevant areas (carbon, social and ecosystem); help it build a more ethical and effective governance structure, and more broadly take positive action around any cause of their choosing.
A growing body of evidence shows that injecting genuine purpose into an organisation drives tangible bottom line benefits (increased competitiveness, brand resilience, employee engagement, talent retention & acquisition, etc). We are committed to helping companies unlock the full business benefits of taking positive action - internally and externally.
For companies wishing to act, the environmental and social transformation process is still largely manual, expensive and difficult to manage. Our aim is to leverage the automating and simplifying power of information technologies to develop a highly scalable solution affordable to all. A cloud based platform that enables companies to plan, execute and measure their entire strategy in the most enjoyable and user friendly way possible.
We believe in the power of collaboration - all things are interconnected. No one can win this fight alone. We seek to constantly develop, validate and improve our modus operandi and collaborate with a wide range of projects, organisations and research bodies in our field. Whatever our clients’ needs we strive to help them access the best solutions for every aspect of their strategy.
We believe in the intelligence and power of Nature. She holds all the solutions. We just need to learn from her, help her, and ultimately, let her do what is needed to reset the balance on our planet. We are committed to constantly learn from the most relevant experts, be they an acclaimed international research body or a remote forest community.
Companies need to address the full spectrum.
If we only tackle climate change through carbon reduction, we will not have protected ourselves against the gravity of biodiversity loss. And we cannot protect biodiversity if we continue to pollute and destroy ecosystems. Meanwhile, we believe it is impossible to restore our planet to full health without prioritising the wellbeing of communities.
The balance between people and Nature is a delicate one. Addressing the social issues of injustice and inequality is central to enabling environmental protection.
We help our clients identify and regulate the interdependencies between business, society and nature, to enable them to become a real force for good.
