The success story of Poush

Poush, client de beautiful green

“A Beautiful Green helped us to realise a network exists, a community of companies that have a more sustainable impact. ABG introduced us to B Corp and their philosophy of taking into account all aspects of a company; we really liked it. So, we decided to go for B Corp certification. A Beautiful Green really helped us to outline the different stages of the questionnaire. Cintia gave us ideas for improvement, small things to put in place on a daily basis at Poush. A Beautiful Green has been a constant companion to us. They’ve supported, motivated and advised us throughout the process and long afterwards, continuing to answer our questions when we’ve been implementing new sustainable initiatives.”

The challenge

Poush wanted to take more sustainable action, including among other initiatives, to find a way to offset their carbon footprint. But when they started researching sustainability, they realised just how much could be done and how much they were already doing. With a huge range of possibilities open to them, making decisions about sustainable measures on top of their daily workload was too much to handle. So, the challenge was to navigate through the many possible options and pinpoint where to start the process of incorporating a set of sustainable actions into their business.

The strategy

After discussing their needs and the sustainable actions already taken in the company, we proposed our support to help Poush certify as a B Corp, a certification some of their employees were already familiar with. To offer the best possible support while respecting their daily workload, here’s how we carried out this project:

  • null
    Project management: initiation, planning, execution, monitoring and closure;
  • null
    Presentation of B Corp certification open to all employees after consultation with the project manager;
  • null
    Identification of key employees needed to carry out the project;
  • null
    Provision of a summary of the documents required to obtain certification;
  • null
    Intermediate point of contact with the certifying body;
  • null
    Proposal of a roadmap including the areas for improvement (improvement plan);
  • null
    Attendance and support at the verification meeting with the certifying body.

The result

The agency’s employees now have a more comprehensive view of the effect their company has on the environment in general. When faced with a choice, they directly identify criteria to achieve sustainability and good governance, which then guide their decisions. This has led them to implement new practices within the company and take actions that were previously still at planning stage. They are much more involved in their societal impact and far more careful with their consumption of resources. They support a Belgian forestry research project and the team is proactively involved in more pro bono actions.
