At FUTURE-PROOFinc. we envision a sustainable world in which individuals, communities and organizations thrive within nature’s limits. Our worldis rapidly evolving, becoming increasingly complex yet, is more transparent than ever. The current global developments provide challenges at regional and local level for societies, organisations and individuals. The sustainability challenge is global and consists of many interconnected issues. The global population will increase to 9 billion by 2050 and the demand for finite resources is growing exponentially. Your business sector will be progressively impacted by resource scarcity, climate change, supply chain insecurity, stakeholder demands, increased regulations and rising costs for resources, insurance and finance and sustaining by itself is not enough, you want to thrive. This drives change. We help our clients future-proof* their organisation by building capacity in viewing, exploring and using sustainability and thrivability as magnets for successful innovation.

Driven by different stakeholders, definitions, methods and frameworks of sustainability the variety of topics, efforts and investments are treated separately. Complex issues, such as sustainability, require a holistic, vision-driven, structured integral approach. Through a structured approach and with the appropriate set of business lenses we bring clarity to complexity, allowing organisations to be strategic, focus their resources on designing resilient, sustainable and future proof strategies, practices and products. In addition it will allow effective communication with stakeholders while bridging the sustainability gap. For our work we use our Context-driven innovation model, with the Framework for Strategic Sustainable Development (FSSD) at it’s core. FUTURE-PROOFinc. applies the Natural Step approach and is connected to The Natural Step The Netherlands.
Organisations recognize innovation as a core strategy for continuity and financial benefit of the organisation. However, what are the visions organisations innovate towards? We help organisations to create meaningful value by innovation towards sustainability, while simultaneously contributing to the bottom line. For those who do it right, investing in sustainability can reduce costs, lower risk, thrivability for their stakeholders, increase productivity and increase revenues and market share, creating both short-and long-term value.
Not communicating your sustainability understanding, your efforts, investments and results will prevent you from reaping the benefits. Inadequate sustainability reports and product labels – that are missing the essence – cause further degradation of trust, as it is perceived as green washing. We help you to align your communication with your strategy and sustainability context to reap the benefits of your efforts.
Organisations involved in sustainability should do so simultaneously and continuously in three areas:
- awareness and understanding of their sustainability context;
- think & act by using sustainability to strategically drive innovations; and
- report their sustainability vision, strategy, performance and progress.
Risks of only partial performance include:
- communications showing misunderstanding of sustainability and its effects on the operations vice versa;
- missed innovation opportunities;
- missed benefits from current efforts and investments; and
- deemed effective solutions causing other problems.
