What we do

Together we translate sustainability into business opportunities. SIGLA offers an enthusiastic, factual and adapted approach to how your business can turn sustainability into business opportunities. We are aware that all our clients have individual challenges and goals that require tailor-made solutions. We want you to work smarter and thereby achieve better and more efficient results from your efforts in turning sustainability into tangible business opportunities.

A fit for purpose business strategy provides your business with concise answers to what it entails to thrive as a business in the 21st century. Great understanding of sustainability is a prerequisite for such a strategy. SIGLA can help you understand and embed sustainability into your core business, aligning goals and visions. The result will be a description of your business as 100% sustainable, clear prioritisation of areas for development, an action plan and concrete targets to help measure and monitor progress in day-to-day business. With our extensive experience from a variety of businesses and academic backgrounds, many years of sustainability project experience coupled with a wide set of proven methodologies, SIGLA enables you to reduce risks, realise business opportunities and build a robust and future-proof business strategy.

Much can be done to improve the sustainability performance within your current business model. Examples include energy efficiency initiatives, products development and new partnerships. Our experience indicates however that larger gains require more radical innovation. Could your business become a net producer of energy? What would a fully circular business model look like? How can your business benefit from digitalization and swapping physical products for virtual services? And which business models work in emerging markets with limited purchasing power? We can help you assess such challenges and especially opportunities, drawing on our extensive experience from different markets and industries, so that you can make informed choices on how to strengthen and diversify your business.
