For more than 20 years, award-winning 3stepIT has been helping businesses to embrace the circular economy model, saving millions of electrical devices from going to landfill and tons of carbon emissions.
When it came to developing our own sustainability strategy, we wanted support from experts who shared our values and motivations.
Strategic review and materiality assessment
Terrafiniti were a good fit for us, not only because of their clear and unrivalled expertise in the field, but because they were also very down to earth and always approachable, accessible, and responsive.
They have helped us in several ways, supporting the development of our strategy first through a strategic review, then moving on to develop a Materiality Assessment and then to explore our overall ambition and vision for sustainability as a company.
Following that, Terrafiniti worked with people from across our business to co-create strategic objectives and targets, mapping out how these could be delivered in tangible ways.
In recent months, Terrafiniti has also been supporting us with our Total Cost of Ownership and environment business case for leasing/IT refurbishing services.
Engaging with colleagues at all levels of the business
Terrafiniti spent more than six months with us, talking with colleagues from all levels of the business and interviewing our key stakeholders to build the research and evidence we needed to develop our strategy.
Colleagues who worked with them found it a really positive and engaging experience that enthused them.
The impact of their work with us has been significant. For the first time we have a strategy that’s built on research and evidence and speaks to the core values of what we are about as a business.
We have always been passionate about sustainability and believed we had very good practices in place, but it was clear that there were areas we needed to look at and areas where we needed help.
Our sustainability behaviours
As a result of our work with Terrafiniti we are now able to speak to our customers – both existing and new ones – about sustainability practices in much more depth, which is helping our business grow in the way we want it to and, crucially, helping us add value for our customers.
We couldn’t have achieved this without the valued input from Terrafiniti.
