Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how this solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.
If Carlos, owner of the plastic bags factory, decided to contract our services, he would receive an international accreditation for his positive environmental footprint, after the necessary adjustments to the reduction in toxics in his products. Carlos, with the connection that WeAreTwo realized, would generate indirect employment. He could create an agreement with the city recyclers, to be in charge of the recycling process of his products. These people would be organized so that their work was formally now. Best of all, is that parents of children as Nico , would be the people trained for this work, so Nico could stop asking for money on the streets and go to school like other children . We would finally break the cycle of poverty.
Impact: What is the impact of the work to date? Also describe the projected future impact for the coming years.
The impact would be reflected through two areas: Donations and implementing CSR in a company. If Carlos decides to change his business habits, he begins receiving a benefit because WeAreTwo will be responsible for generating innovative ideas that will give added value to hiscompany, which in turn generate more clients and consumers. The impact for the environment begins from reducing energy, for his employees, respect for appropriate labor practices with the Millennium Goals, for society, generating indirect employment. If Carlos decided to make only donations, he would impact the number of children and families who benefit from the creation of libraries to improve education . Society would be the largest beneficiary in any way. Therefore the project is self-sustaining, as a benefit for both sides is generated.
Spread Strategies: Moving forward, what are the main strategies for scaling impact?
Our innovation is to create CSR plans for both large companies and small. The job is difficult because in Colombia, over 96 % of companies are MSMEs and is precisely for this reason that we want them to more competitive in market, through social value added. We have already created the training and ongoing events for education of managers and employees on human rights, labor and environmental rights. Compromise must be for each one of members of the company. We offer support, processing and reporting of sustainability, international accreditation, brand positioning, exemption of taxes.
