FuturePlus is a sustainability management platform that makes managing social and environmental impact accessible, affordable, achievable and trackable for every business, not just the 1%. FuturePlus qualifies a company’s sustainability achievements before quantifying and translating them into a realistic and trackable action plan.
Its indicators, made up of 200-300 questions, educate companies and business leaders to take practical, incremental steps towards sustainability by focusing on five pillars: Climate, Economic, Diversity & Inclusion, Social and Environment. Its indicators align with all 17 of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
Communicating your sustainability goals and dedication to fostering positive change is essential for the success of your business. Embarking on a sustainability journey signifies a significant achievement worthy of recognition and celebration.
That’s why FuturePlus introduced the IMPACT CERTIFIED badge.
Gaining a FuturePlus IMPACT CERTIFIED badge is an accomplishment to take pride in.
“To be the first winner of this award is a real honour. The fact we are gaining expert consultancy on sustainability practices which enables us to transparently show how we are achieving our goals, is vital to the success of our business. In order to scale, we must abide by our high moral and ethical code – one which is inclusive to those socially and economically less fortunate, without compromising on the impact it has on our climate and environment.”
“This award will help us to scale our company in the most socially and environmentally responsible way possible. FuturePlus gives us full transparency of our sustainability achievements and ambitions and is constantly consulting us to meet our goals across these five pillars: Climate, Diversity & Inclusion, Social, Economic, and Environment. As a result, it sets us apart from our competitors in an aggressive marketplace and we couldn’t be happier.”
