As we enter our 15th Year, we’re looking back at some of the key moments and milestones that have shaped our business to date.
Over the past 15 years, our services have continued to evolve as the market has matured and our customers have grown ever more ambitious. When we launched back in 2009, our primary focus was on delivering inventory assessments and high-level strategy work. In 2011, we linked this consulting with implementation through the introduction of our engineering capabilities, along with the idea that you could reduce costs and carbon emissions at the same time. Bringing engineers together with our consultants was a pivotal moment and is still a key differentiator of ours to this day.
As brands started to consider moving beyond working with individual suppliers and into supplier portfolios, we evolved again. When the Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi) introduced Scope 3 targets, aligning ambition levels with global emissions trajectories and temperature targets, it acted as a catalyst, compelling companies to seriously consider carbon management as both a risk and an opportunity.
This instilled a shift in attitude towards supply chains, emphasizing the necessity for a comprehensive carbon strategy that encompasses the entirety of the supply chain, rather than just select manufacturers. More recently, the SBTi trend and regulations linked to it have pushed reporting requirements, leading to the production of a much more sophisticated set of tech offerings.
As we reflect on our journey thus far, we are excited for what can be achieved in the next 15 years, but for now, here are some of our key milestones.
