BWD has worked with the Oceania subsidiary of a Japanese market leader in optical, imaging and industrial products since 2019, advising on multiple aspects of the company’s sustainability agenda. In 2023, BWD was tasked with developing a comprehensive five-year sustainability strategy and implementation plan.

The strategy outlines how the business can use sustainability to enhance organizational resilience and long-term value creation. Key themes include circular economy, innovation, emissions reduction, diversity and inclusion, data privacy, and resilient supply chains. The implementation plan is a practical guide for implementing the strategy. It includes sustainability objectives, advice on addressing current gaps, evidence-based metrics and targets, peer analysis, governance arrangements, resourcing implications and timelines.

As a B Corp business, we are committed to helping our client move outside its comfort zone, working closely with internal champions to build the investment case for sustainability and articulate the cultural and productivity benefits of embracing meaningful change.
