Where do I start?

Our 5 step process from insight to impact. 

We have designed a comprehensive, five-step process to help you deliver an ESG plan that is not only insightful and effective but also actionable and impactful.
As with all our processes at Social Change, it begins with research and understanding people, so if you are just starting out on your ESG journey - or you have a plan but it seems to be going nowhere, let us take you through our process.

Step 1: Insights
Step 2: Analyse
Step 3: Prioritise
Step 4: Communication
Step 5: Impact
Step 1


Set your organisation up for success by outlining goals and using research to inform your materiality assessment. 

Understanding the most pressing ESG issues is key. We conduct research with your key stakeholders to uncover their views on critical environmental, social, and governance issues within your business and in the broader society. 

We will:

  • Engage with employees, customers, suppliers, and other stakeholders to gather diverse perspectives. 
  • Identify the most significant ESG issues that resonate with your stakeholders. 
  • Build a solid foundation of knowledge to guide your ESG plan.
Step 2


With the collected data, we will perform a detailed analysis to map the impact of these issues on both society and your business. This dual perspective ensures that your strategy is balanced and aligned with broader societal needs as well as business goals. 

We will:

  • Analyse stakeholder data to uncover patterns and key insights. 
  • Map issues based on their societal and business impacts. 
  • Ensure your plan addresses both external and internal priorities.
Step 3


After in depth analysis, we will identify the issues that are financially material to your business and have a significant social and environmental impact.  

We will:

  • Help you determine your organisation's priorities based on these findings
  • Pinpoint critical issues that align with your business objectives and societal expectations.  
  • Identify trends and emerging priorities. 
Step 4


An effective ESG plan must be clearly communicated to all stakeholders. Our expert team will craft tailored messages to resonate with your audience, ensuring that your stakeholders understand and support your ESG initiatives. 

We will:

  • Develop targeted communication strategies for different stakeholder groups. 
  • Craft compelling messages to promote buy-in and engagement. 
  • Embed behavioural insights into your plans to enhance the effectiveness of your communications. 
Step 5


The final step is to ensure that the planned changes are put into action. This will involve fostering behaviour change within your organisation and among stakeholders to achieve your ESG goals. 

We will:

  • Help you implement plans to encourage and sustain human behaviour change. 
  • Ensure stakeholder buy-in and active participation. 
  • Monitor progress and make adjustments to stay on track towards your goals.
