From enterprises working in silos to an engaged, connected and collaborative one

Transition from a linear economy to a circular economy

Treeni’s tagline is ‘Reimagining Sustainability’, this essentially means focusing on performance and impact instead of reporting, breaking down enterprise sustainability silos and creating engaged, connected and collaborative stakeholders, and from a take, make, dump economy to a regenerative, restorative economy. Our approach is consulting led with subject matter experts, designing and deploying our sustainability data management, analytics and performance management, and reporting and disclosures SaaS platform resustain™.

Our approach is also emphasized by SPC – Strategy (S), Performance (P) and Collaboration (C), the 3 critical focus areas that we have incorporated into a unique approach conceptualized by Treeni that enables ‘Reimagining Sustainability’

Strategy

In a post-COVID world it is critical that we redefine ‘sustainability strategy’, the world as we know it has changed. In many cases supply chains are broken, social issues around employees, suppliers and communities are magnified, ESG focused companies are being rewarded by Investors with a certain degree of certainty that they will lead the recovery while continuing to stay focused on addressing climate change. In redefining strategy making decisions while understanding governance risks and opportunities is critical. At Treeni we are positioning our platform resustain™ and it’s functionality to help clients ‘redefine sustainability strategy’.

Materiality Assessment to enable ‘Redefining sustainability strategy in a post COVID world’

Figuring out what is material in a post COVID world through a formal materiality assessment that engages all important stakeholders like investors, clients, consumers, employees, suppliers and communities, creates the opportunity to understand what has changed, identify the new gaps between what is now material such as supply chain risks, diversity of the workforce, social risks etc and the traditional sustainability focus areas. These gaps then help craft a future proof sustainability strategy and roadmap that is relevant in a post COVID world.

While traditional sustainability strategy and roadmap might have addressed carbon neutrality, waste management, Circular Economy, water management, scope 3 emissions, in a post COVID world the materiality matrix might emphasize gaps such as ESG Risks & Opportunities, goal setting that includes Future-Fit sustainability goals and SBTs, smart goal analysis, governance - including leadership and accountability, diversity, human rights/minority rights, supply chain risks, enterprise collaboration.

ESG Risks/ Opportunities Assessment

Evidence shows that sustainability-related crises often result in loss of investor confidence or reduced stock value. Business case for sustainability is stronger when you identify your ESG risks and opportunities. Treeni’s risk and opportunity assessment functionality in resustain™ and sectoral research database helps to

  • Identify risks in the context of the materiality matrix - which would typically emphasize regulatory compliance, climate change, water and waste, social issues, human rights, supply chain, governance issues such as bribery and corruption and brand and reputation risks
  • Opportunities for new products and services, markets and business models
  • Strengthen your business case for sustainability
  • Prioritization of risks, mitigation and avoidance strategy
  • Proactive opportunities identification for competitive differentiation.

Performance

One of the most important developments in addressing climate change is the collaboration between CDP, the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), World Resources Institute (WRI), and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) and one of the We Mean Business Coalition commitments, that has led to Science Based Targets (SBTi). TCFD & SASB are very important not just for large global companies, but also ‘Small and Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs)’, driven by the need to establish themselves as ESG and sustainability focused suppliers to their customers. To improve CDP ranking and ratings it is increasingly critical to sign up for SBTi, Performance Management is an important module of resustain™ that provides the functionality to baseline sustainability data around the relevant KPIs, set up SBTi and timelines, and use predictive analytics to assess the ability to goals & targets, and take corrective actions as needed.

Sustainability Data Management, Performance Management, Reporting & Disclosures

A company’s ESG (environmental, social and governance) practices define its long term success, sustainability reporting and disclosures help enterprises engage with key stakeholder groups and communicate how effectively they manage and improve sustainability and ESG performance.

Treeni’s consulting led approach helps clients deploy resustain™ to achieve:

People-process-technology mapping

  • Data profiling, governance, software inventory, integration touch point identification
  • Streamlining your transition to a technology platform for automation of reporting, and help enhance governance and the data collection processes
  • Drafting, communicating and disclosing a client’s sustainability strategy, goals and performance
  • Define appropriate key performance indicators for the three pillars of ESG multi-disclosure indicator mapping and base-lining.
  • Multi-framework reporting (DJSI, CDP/SBTi, FTSE, SASB, EcoVadis, GRI, NVG, BRR)
  • Transitioning to Integrated Reporting

Collaboration

Excellence in sustainability strategy and roadmap execution, is possible by engaging and communicating with key stakeholder groups. resustain™ creates the opportunity to use data, analytics, dashboards and disclosures to engage with stakeholders. From providing an ESG lens into sustainability data and performance to the CFO, CRO (Chief Risk Officer) and Investor Relations, to collaborating with Suppliers to collect Scope 3 emissions data, or from engaging with millennial employees around their sustainability aspirations, to addressing the needs of local communities.

Treeni’s offerings are conceptualized to be relevant to our clients’ business irrespective of the maturity of their sustainability journey, and technology enabled by the different modules and functionality of our resustain™ platform.

Circular Economy

Businesses are increasingly required to bring about fresh thinking to existing linear business models and transform them into circular ones. The prevalence of such models now, is testimony to the rapidly growing mindset and acceptance that inclusive circular models are a business imperative. Key drivers are the need to reduce dependency on constrained resources, cost of extraction and related supply chain risks and negating adverse environmental impacts.

Our consulting led approach helps in:

  • Identification of circularization opportunities
  • Cross industry collaboration
  • Waste minimization opportunities

The Treeni resustain™ platform serves not only for data collection, tracking and streamlining, but to also utilize its rich analytical reporting capabilities to establish ‘circularity’ in a business or manufacturing process

Supply Chain

In certain industries like the consumer sector more than 80% of GHG emissions come from the supply chain, commonly referred to as Scope 3 emissions. A resilient sustainable supply chain not only helps reduce scope 3 emissions but also saves precious resources and money, it also promotes strong corporate values, reduces reputational risks, drives competitive advantage, and attracts institutional investors .

Treeni helps clients:

  • Develop and enhance your supply chain strategy
  • Supplier assessment, score-carding and performance management
  • Defining supplier code of conduct and policies
  • CSR Audits, corrective action plans (CAPs) and reporting

Treeni resustain™ Enterprise and IDEA platforms help clients be they large global enterprise or SMEs that are also typically suppliers to large global enterprises, seamlessly track supply chain sustainability data and manage performance, engage and collaborate effectively with suppliers, and manage supplier engagement and training programs. The platform helps in mapping supply chain to assess social and governance issues such as human rights, child labor, forced labor, inequality in wages, and take appropriate actions

Corporate Social Responsibility

Apart from a company’s environmental stewardship or corporate ethics, their social responsibilities and their impact on stakeholders and communities form the core of any company’s sustainability strategy. By improving the quality of life of its workforce and their families as well as of the community and society at large, businesses can make CSR a strategic management imperative.

  • Aligning it to the sustainability strategy and business strategy
