We believe we can help society move forward and this is embodied in our purpose - Enhancing Society Together. Our purpose drives us and helps differentiate ourselves in the market. It’s also our daily compass:
‘We care deeply about our people, our clients, and society at large. We take responsibility for having a positive impact on the world and we constantly challenge ourselves and others to develop sustainable solutions to local and global issues. We feel the urgency and are committed to accelerating the measurable benefits we deliver.
We act with integrity and transparency and hold ourselves to the highest standards of environmental and social governance. We are diverse and inclusive. We will not compromise the safety or well-being of our team or communities – no matter the circumstances.
We actively collaborate with clients, partners and stakeholders in projects and initiatives, together. Our actions, big and small, will drive the positive change the world needs, and will enhance society now and for the future.’
We want to be a consulting company with purpose; one that is trusted by society, valued by clients and motivating for our employees. We believe we have the experience and expertise, the relationships and the reach, the skill and the will, to do this.
Our success as an organisation supports us in our purpose. The more we are recognised for the leading role we play in innovation and sustainability, the more we can expand our activities and our influence. We have the opportunity to make a positive difference through the projects we are undertaking, co-creating solutions that enhance the lives of communities everywhere. We are committed to use this opportunity and ensure we are driving positive change at every level – globally and locally. We do this by exploring different perspectives, shaping new solutions to make the transition to smart and sustainable while considering the ethical implications of these solutions. Our contribution in 2021 - activities, initiatives and example projects - are presented in the section Our Performance.
Enhancing Society Together provides us with a daily compass which is supported by our values. These are key to our ambition and our purpose because they form the basis of who we are and what we want to be. The following five points, which create the acronym
B R I T E, explain these values:
Brightness: We keep an open mind to ideas that lead to the best solutions for our clients. We innovate and are eager to lead by inspiration. How? One of our solutions is the use of our 4 Questions.
Result driven: We aim to get the best possible results for our clients and our company to ensure sustainable financial performance. Read more on how we ensure quality and sustainability of the products and services we deliver for clients.
Integrity: We care about our clients, our staff and society as a whole. We create integrated, sustainable and pragmatic solutions with a high respect for people and their environment. We have zero tolerance for non-compliance with our integrity code. Read more about our standards and performance in the section Integrity and ethical performance.
Team spirit: Our way of working is proactive, open and inclusive. How we encourage diversity of thought and unlock our full potential is presented in the section Employability.
Excellence: We deliver on our promises and strive to continuously improve the added value of our services. Read more on how we ensure quality and sustainability of the products and services we deliver for clients.
Insights from an employee survey as well as from client interviews could lead to changes in these values in the course of 2022.
