The GRIPS Process

 

According to the Better Business World Report released by the Business and Sustainable Development Commission, pursuing the Sustainable Development Goals could create trillions in market opportunities.  With SDGXCHANGE, organizations of all sizes have a strategy-tool at hand to tap into this potential. 

The strategy tool applies relevant tools and methodologies accelerating the transition to true business sustainability.  It enables companies to reflect and focus on long-term solutions creating a net-positive impact for all.

 

 

 

 

The SDGXCHANGE provides organizations with a GRIPS five step process guidance and support on how to change from an inside-out to an outside-in perspective, and how to embrace true business sustainability into the core strategies.

Each step within GRIPS is described below.
