We play an active role in our Partners' community activities.
Since 2012, we have been members of 1% for the Planet, a global movement of companies who donate 1% of their sales revenue to environmental non-profits. In 2013, our CEO Kathryn Sheridan became the first European Ambassador for 1% for the Planet.
Flemish nature conservation NGO Natuurpunt is our 1% for the Planet non-profit partner. So far, we've worked together on improving visitor information and access to nature in the Steentjesbos and Mechels Broek reserves. We launched our 2015 project on 5 June. We helped Natuurpunt build a new picnic table and infoboards for the Silsombos woods in Flanders.
On 2 June 2015, Kauri and Business & Society Belgium launched The Shift. A new network which aims to be the Belgian meeting point for people and organisations to realise the transition to a more sustainable society and economy. We were an active member of Belgian CSR network Kauri since 2013 and one of the only non-Belgian firms in the network. Attending events organised by The Shift helps us strengthen our connection to the Belgian sustainability community and to share our expertise in credible communications and PR.
Sustainability Consult joined forces with NNFCC in 2015, to offer integrated market research and communications services to the bio-based industries. NNFCC is an international consultancy with expertise on the conversion of biomass to bioenergy, biofuels and biobased products.
