Print the Impact Scan template on an A3 or bigger format.
TIP: If you plan to use this tool as a guide to push sustainability forward in your organization, you might consider printing in a larger format and hang it somewhere people will notice.
Score your organization on each topic of the 5 categories by coloring in the number of boxes corresponding to your score.
TIP: Talk to people in your organization to get a full picture. Maybe they know about sustainability initiatives or systems you didn’t know about.
Analyze your scores and determine where you want to grow. Where can you minimize negative impacts and increase your positive impact? You can indicate the score you want to strive for by outlining the boxes on the template.
Write down initiatives that can help you achieve these goals. What projects could you launch to create positive impact and use business as a force for good?
TIP: Ask your colleagues for ideas. Involving more people at this stage will help you to come up with more sustainability initiatives, but more importantly it will create shared ownership between your co-workers. People feel more responsible when they are involved, which will help you to mobilize them later on and make your sustainability journey a success.
Share the Quest Impact Scan with your company, set-up your sustainability initiatives with allocated budgets and start working towards a more sustainable and resilient business.
