Thinking outside the box
Newleaf’s genuine insights and experiences of CSR and supply chains, along with our economic, social and environmental hotspot methodology gives our clients the entire picture of sustainability issues across their business, avoiding sustainability blindspots.
Supported by our high standards of research and data collection our work has enabled our clients to:
- quantify the sustainability hotspots in a raw material supply chain to inform government policy and change existing perceptions of sustainability issues in the category
- interpret a client’s data on timber-containing products to articulate what net positive would look like – before B&Q came up with the idea! For timber, B&Q calculates the volume of timber they use annually, which equates to a forest the size of Finland, and ensure they plant more than this.
- change the conversation with suppliers from underperformance and compliance to innovation for future business needs and
- work with new partners and collaborations to have more positive impacts and longer lasting outcomes.
