Materiality Assessment: RNLI
As Sustainability Manager for the RNLI, I believe that sustainability is not a place you arrive at, it’s a horizon and the closer you get the more it moves and changes.
Every day there is the opportunity to learn something new and my engagement with Terrafiniti always opens my eyes to what we can and need to do to achieve our ambitions. Over the years they have helped shape my knowledge of and approach to sustainability, including ways of embedding it within my organisation. Their Sustainable Business Guidance & Resources, Towards 9 Billion books and Sustainability Professionals Resilience Group, is continuing to inform my thinking and our sustainability journey.
I first began working with Terrafiniti in 2018 when the company helped us refine our initial thinking and work on completing a Materiality Assessment.
Integrity and expertise
It was clear right from the beginning that Terrafiniti understood the needs and challenges of our organisation. Their work is all about providing solutions to those needs and challenges in realistic and pragmatic ways.
Their technical skills and expertise are second to none, and Joss is very able to work with people from all levels of an organisation, from executives to managers, engaging and enthusing people along the way.
Terrafiniti honestly care about the bigger picture, and that shines through in every conversation and meeting I have had with them. Their approach is underpinned by a solid integrity that I find both inspiring and reassuring.
Presenting complex topics in a simple way
The work to prioritise and structure our Materiality Assessment was a crucial first step for us. Joss helped frame our approach and thinking and supported me to be able to present what are complex topics and concepts in simple, engaging ways without ever losing the heart of the issue.
That early work and the foundations it laid, has helped me to better understand, challenge and influence our sustainability thinking and strategic approach as an organisation. It contributed to the fundamental basis of some of the work we have completed and are embarking on now.
Terrafiniti have always provided a brilliant service, a great sounding board and practical presentations. They are experts in their field and their technical skills and knowledge are second to none.
They deliver a service with real passion and integrity and build trust, delivering results that make a difference.
Personally, I cannot recommend them highly enough.
