“Knowledge is one thing, but helping businesses such as ours utilise and put that knowledge into the heart of the business is a deeper challenge. Seismic has ably delivered on this and as a result we are excited to continue our journey with an ambition to become a certified B Corp.”

“In the course of working with Seismic to explore B Corp Certification we have started to explore a fantastic network, made up of decent like-minded people at various stages of their own B Corp journey, with whom we have formed new working relationships and some of whom have become clients in their own right.”

FAQs

How can I respond to client demands around sustainability?

We work to understand your specific ambition paired with your client’s needs. From there, we develop a plan to bridge any gaps in your capabilities – helping you establish credibility before advising your clients. The path may include sustainability baselining, materiality assessments and stakeholder engagement in order to identify focus areas.

How do I avoid greenwashing and communicate our progress credibly?

Using recognised reporting frameworks like GRI, SASB or TCFD gives your business credibility and accountability, but it’s important that your reporting simplifies the sustainability complexities to bring stakeholders on the journey with you. We help you tell your sustainability story in relatable business terms, making it tangible and engaging.

What should I prioritise on our sustainability journey?

Priorities emerge from holding your goals up to your current sustainability performance and capabilities. Where gaps exist, we create clear roadmaps to build your firm’s capabilities through training, process improvements and internal incentives.

How long will it take and what investment is required?

Given the sheer breadth of potential needs, it’s impossible to prescribe a one-size-fits-all timeline or investment level upfront. With an open discussion to understand your specific circumstances, we partner with you for the long-term – or defined 6-12 month programs – to focus on driving lasting, sustainable value with continuous improvement.
