Pioneering organisations create systemic impacts beyond their own boundaries. We help them understand the opportunities, and how to unlock them.

The SDGs and Paris Climate Agreement have set in stone what Forum has always believed: that organisations don’t only need to transform themselves, they also need to take the lead in transforming entire systems. In fact, the global scale of some organisations’ operations makes them especially well-placed to drive progress on issues like sustainable nutrition, renewable energy and resource scarcity. Where they lead, others follow.

Our long-term collaborations with major multinationals including Unilever, O2, TUI Travel, Kingfisher and M&S; NGOs such as the Rainforest Alliance and Forest Stewardship Council; and government agencies such as Innovate UK therefore gives us a unique opportunity to create system-level change.

We're able to inform senior level strategy and scale-up the organisation’s impact on issues like product innovation, creating consumer demand, reshaping markets and driving policy advocacy, which ultimately leads to change across entire sectors and systems. 

We support the development and delivery of sustainability strategies.

Since 2007 we have been a ‘critical friend’ on M&S’s Plan A strategy and implementation, reinforcing its global reputation as a sustainability leader.

We devise strategies to help organisations tackle systemic challenges

We helped Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation strengthen the effectiveness of its oceans work, bringing together its key NGO partners in a unique collaboration.

We reinvent carbon strategies for a 1.5°C world and develop Net Positive approaches

Unilever’s pioneering commitment to eliminate fossil fuels from its operations and directly support the generation of more renewable energy than they consume was driven behind the scenes by Forum.

We help partners deliver their strategies in the long term

We act as an implementation sounding board and troubleshooter for companies such as Aditya Birla and Swire Pacific Offshore and China Navigation Company.
