Organization Mission: What problem is your organization committed to solving? In particular, describe what is innovative about your approach.
We are focused on changing the sustainability narrative tocreate a low carbon world.
The current sustainability narrative is inaccessible to many people. This is a result of using overly complicated and scientific explanations. We want to simplify the narrative. And rather than concentrating on ‘what’ sustainability is, we want to connect with people on an emotional level by showing them ‘why’ sustainability is important in their lives.
We have blended our skills and experience in science and policy with communications and marketing. This blend provides clients with innovative communications approaches that get to the heart of the challenge.
Impact: What has been the impact of your solution to date?
To date, we have delivered 22 projects working with 18 clients. Our revenue from these projects is approximately £200K.
We do not have a formal financial management system. Although we do track our sales pipeline and create budgets for our projects.
We would welcome some support to develop a simple financial management and planning system that would enable us to track how we are doing, how we can cost our projects more effectively and how we should be planning and budgeting for growth.
We have recently won a long-term project that will provide a little bit more financial security, but we recognize we need to make some good decisions about growing our team to ensure we can make the most of it.
Impact: What is your projected impact after receiving consulting support from American Express?
Some professional support from American Express to help us get better at financial management and planning would help us to grow our team in a sustainable way.
Sustainability: Do you currently have the financial and human resources to implement new strategies or recommendations offered through this partnership, or would implementation be dependent on receiving additional funding? Please describe.
