The Engagement phase helps teams identify and adopt ‘best practice.’ ¬†Examples of the activities associated with this phase of work include:

Cross-functional engagement to ensure involvement by all parts of the organisation:

  • Build commitment to place sustainability at the heart of organisational strategy
  • Assess the implications for each functional area
  • Identify opportunities to implement ‘best practice.’

Assessing implications for the organisation:

  • Identify options to reduce adverse impact on the environment
  • Define the behaviours and capabilities required to support new ways of working
  • Assess the gap between current vs. required behaviours and capabilities

Develop action plans for teams and functions

  • Identify how teams/functional activities link to organisational objectives
  • Identify potential changes to processes that will deliver the low carbon strategy
  • Develop high-level ‘benefits case’ to evaluate proposed options
  • Agree action plans for teams/functions that will feed into the emerging low carbon strategy for the organisation

A practical example of the value of effective engagement is provided in the attached article: ‘Three best practices’. ¬†This shows the linkage between collecting data, management reporting and effective cross-functional engagement.
