Business sustainability development services

– corporation sustainability management

C.C.I International Consulting Group, Consulting’s expertise in the field of corporate responsibility and sustainability can help your organization grow sustainably while fulfilling its commercial goals and business objectives. Sustainability is a holistic management approach that once embedded into each company’s business model and core strategy, can provide added value to that organization, and to the community and the environment in which the company operates. It is also a framework that can help companies identify, prevent and mitigate possible adverse impacts and risks. Our suite of services on corporate responsibility and sustainability also include consulting on corporate social responsibility (CSR), which we implement using the ISO 26000 standard on social responsibility.

We can support you with:

Sustainability Strategy Formulation and Implementation

We can help you formulate and implement a sustainability strategy, as well as other company policies and practices related to sustainability more widely. Specifically, we can support you with any issues pertaining to community and stakeholder engagement, the environment, consumer issues, fair operating practices, labor practices and human rights. We will design all policies, strategies and practices to align with your organization’s values and objectives, to help you achieve competitive advantage.

Corporate Governance

Corporate governance refers to the systems and processes through which an organization is governed, thereby prescribing what kind of corporate citizens organizations seek to be. Effective and efficient corporate governance can ensure the survival and sustainable development of an organization by improving its relationship with its stakeholders, ensuring transparency, managing risks proactively (covering legal, social, environmental and reputational risks) and ultimately providing the organization with a social license to operate in its community. We can help you develop and implement systems and processes relating to corporate governance and social responsibility.

Implementation and External Verification of ISO 26000

ISO 26000 is the internationally recognized standard on Social Responsibility. We are uniquely positioned to support you with integrating ISO 26000 into your business, as well as reviewing and evaluating it on a regular basis. We can also prepare you for external verification of ISO 26000 by an independent third-party. Our staff is certified by Austrian Standards in implementing ISO 26000 and in undertaking social audits of the established system once in place.

Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) – G4 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines

The Global Reporting Initiative’s latest guidelines on sustainability reporting (G4) help organizations to disclose their most critical impacts on the environment, society and the economy. They help organizations generate and publish reliable and standardized information with which to assess opportunities and risks to the company and inform decision-making. Our GRI-certified staff can support you in your efforts to report on sustainability using the GRI-G4 guidelines.

Measurements and Evaluations

We can advise you on and support you with evaluating the effectiveness of your sustainability strategy and initiatives. We can help you develop a set of relevant Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that can be used to measure progress against targets set and provide an overall picture of how sustainable your organization is.

Sustainability Communication Strategies

We can employ a range of sustainability communication strategies adapted to your needs and objectives to communicate to your internal (e.g. employees, etc.) and external (e.g. clients, competitors, regulators, public, etc.) stakeholders, the status of your sustainability projects, your successes and learnings, and any other information you require. We can also use these strategies to transform internal sustainability projects into broadly accepted and acclaimed company measures.

– sustainable supply chain management

Helping realize a next-generation smart supply chain: linking global with local– linking the SCM workplace with middle-management and corporate administration

The fundamental concept behind SCM is to gain a fresh understanding of each individual logistic element, from the raw materials supplier to the final customer, as comprising a single business process. The task, then, is to continually optimize this process as a whole entity.

In an era of progressive innovation in the structure of industry, as represented by Industry 4.0 and Connected Industries, etc., IOT, Big Data, AI and other technological elements can be exploited to optimize supply chain costs at every successive link. This is done by, for instance, connecting supply chains across industries and making inventory visible.

“Growth Strategy 2017”3, an economic policy initiative aimed at realizing Society 5.0 (an “ultra-smart” society), positions the development of next-generation supply chains as one of five key strategic domains. This makes it clear that a major contribution to the productivity revolution will be made by supply chains that eliminate waste and link data associated with development, supply & demand, manufacturing, sales and consumption.

C.C.I International Consulting Group, Consulting’s Next-Generation Smart Supply Chain adapts the client firm’s own supply chain to progress in digital/IOT technology to forge links between domestic and overseas operations, between companies and between organizations. This facilitates a transformation resulting in highly productive business processes.

Supply chain management is an indispensable part of a business’s sustainability program. Knowing the level of environmental, social, and economic impact and viability of your vendors and customers is becoming increasingly common as all industries move towards a more sustainable future. Government pressures are unlikely to be the driver of this change, but you’re already seeing corporate pressures on suppliers and vendors.

Companies are striving to operate in a more sustainable manner. There’s no denying that going green and being environmentally friendly is the way of the future. And, in order to meet the future head on, companies are making their products or delivering their goods or services in a way that doesn’t impact the environment, that doesn’t deplete natural resources, that doesn’t contribute to climate change, that doesn’t contribute to social inequalities or injustice, and that in general, is done “the right way”.

One of the ways a company does this is by looking at their entire manufacturing process (when we say manufacturing, we mean anything from a product to a service), from where the raw materials are obtained, through the entire process within the plant, to the use and ultimately disposal or recyclability of their product or service. We might call this evaluating the process from “cradle to cradle” (thinking beyond cradle to grave) or on a “life-cycle assessment” type analysis.

Our Approach in Sustainable Supply Chain Management

Companies are more and more expected to take responsibility for social and environmental issues in their supply chain. We analyze supply chains of private and public organizations to identify how key sustainability issues are being managed. The development of capacities, reliable relationships and systems is key for the establishment of sustainable supply chains. We work with suppliers towards innovation, fair labor conditions and environmental stewardship and help our clients to establish a risk-based procurement practice.

Sustainable Supply Chain Management Implementation

You could almost envision this as having the following steps:

– Develop some form of a sustainability plan for your business. What are your goals and objectives, and how do you want to go about them?

– Include your supply chain in your considerations of how sustainable you are. Supply chains are part of your operation, environmentally, socially, and economically.

– Develop a policy for your suppliers and customers. This is up to you, but you should at least be looking at some basic indicators of sustainable operations, whether it’s environmental impact, waste disposal, energy use, employee and community social factors, whatever. It’s your call. But make a policy and stick to it.

– Then, go out and evaluate your supply chain (this probably means a survey of some sort). How do they stack up, and more importantly, what are you going to do about it? The customer of my fellow attendee made it clear that they were making their buying decisions based on the answers. You do the same, figure out where you draw the line. Is your choice price only (not sustainable), or solely based on the sustainability level of your suppliers (bold move), or some combination thereof?

– Then, go back to your supply chain and take appropriate action. Who knows, they might surprise you with some changes towards sustainability themselves.

– business continuity management (BCM)

Having an effective business continuity management program has an important role to play in the success of any organization’s business. Experience has shown that more than 50% of businesses that did not plan for business continuity eventually went bankrupt. Today, the need to ensure the continuity of services in organizations has reached its maximum, because today’s organizations are providing services 24 hours a day during 7 days a week, and the dependence, and sometimes the extent of the organization’s tolerability, on the availability of some IT services are available for less than an hour.

C.C.I Consulting business continuity management experience and framework helps you stay aware of your sensitive and vulnerable business, and builds business plan flexibility and organizational requirements through the establishment of a plan to maintain business and its requirements. Conduct incidents by ensuring that they fulfill a specific program of continuity of their business in any circumstances. C.C.I Consulting provides the following with the following:

– Analysis of the status quo of the organization’s services and their sensitivity and effect of their business on the business (BIA)

– Risk assessment

– Developing and deciding on business continuity management strategies

– Compilation of Response Plans Recovery and Recovery Procedures

– Developing training programs for the preparation of relevant authorities and stakeholders in case of security incidents.

– Establishing a plan to test the business continuity plan and ensure its implementation and effectiveness

What is our approach to business continuity management?

The traditional approaches to business continuity management focused on retrieval and repair, meaning replacing systems and other key resources after a business crisis. For the same reason, many, instead of Business Continuity Management (BCMS), are referred to as a Business Continuity Plan (BCP) process or a DRP Recovery Plan; if they respond as a component the business continuity system only covers the reactive aspect of this system. C.C.I Consulting business continuity management framework, in addition to retrieval, puts in place flexibility in your organization, which helps you to get ahead of Develop crises and challenges to identify them and prepare yourself to deal with them. C.C.I Consulting specialists help you improve and improve your organization’s current status (whether in advanced or advanced stages) in terms of business continuity management.
