Aligning our approach with business + nature
The challenges we face are complex, dynamic and intricately interlinked. To tackle them, we need solutions and approaches that reflect the reality of what we’re up against.
To achieve our mission of aligning business with nature, we’ve formed an interconnected network of communities designed to encourage the cross-pollination of ideas, foster productive collaboration and enable the co-creation of effective, holistic solutions that tackle critical industry topics and set companies up to drive transformation across their businesses.
This ecosystem is built on a solid foundation of environmental expertise, business acumen and market intelligence.
A planetary perspective + deep environmental expertise…
Transforming business to align with nature starts with a solid understanding of planetary boundaries, critical sustainability issues and the latest environmental science. Quantis’ Communities of Expertise reflect the need to act beyond carbon, bringing deep expertise on topics spanning land use, climate, biodiversity, water, and plastic pollution. They harness science to help organizations understand what it means to operate within planetary boundaries and point them towards true sustainability.
And because sustainability challenges, such as climate change, are intrinsically linked through complex feedback loops on multiple scales, our Communities of Expertise work in close partnership to share knowledge and ensure a whole-system approach when shaping solutions. This cross-topic collaboration serves to break down silos, avoid impact transfer, and set our clients up to deliver the greatest possible impact.
Our communities of expertise are lead by:
- Land + Agriculture – Tetyana Pecherska
- Climate — Pierre Collet
- Biodiversity — Edith Martin
- Water — Tatiana Fedotova
- Plastics — Laura Peano
…paired with business acumen + enterprise transformation capabilities
Quantis’ Communities of Practice collaborate closely with our Communities of Expertise to apply environmental science and the planetary boundaries framework to a business context. Communities of Practice are built on a strong foundation of business acumen and expert know-how in areas critical for driving business transformation, including organizational change, supply chain management and strategy design.
Our communities have a deep understanding of the challenges businesses face in driving transformation. They work across the entire value chain and harness systems thinking to root out the causes of complex problems, challenge prevailing assumptions and go beyond setting targets to create actionable roadmaps that lead to real impact. Our teams collaborate with key stakeholders across the organization — from the C-suite to marketing and product development — and deep in the supply chain to turn commitments into action to tangible transform their businesses.
Our communities of practice are lead by:
- Stakeholder Engagement + Communications — Adriana Olaya
- Footprinting — Emilie Carasso
- Strategic Insights, Goals + Roadmaps — Géraldine Noé
- Organizational Change – Cordula Richter
- Supply Chain Management + Monitoring — Jean-André Bonnardel
- Ecodesign + Circularity — Benoit Piette
Our Sector Communities bring an additional and essential perspective to our approach — the market perspective. They partner closely with our Communities of Practice and Communities of Expertise to help our teams stay on top of the latest market forces, trends and operating models in our focus industries so that our approach is always in context with the industry drivers affecting business.
Our Sector Communities are lead by:
- Food + Beverage — Charlotte Bande
- Cosmetics + Personal Care — Emmanuel Hembert
