A CSR-policy and a politically correct Code of Conduct is inadequate to meet the expectation of and demands for corporate responsibility.
To proactively meet future demands and to outpace your competitors, your company needs to integrate sustainability into your business and be able to know and show the impact and shared value of your operations in society.
We measure and assess sustainability performance in a multi-steps process based on established guiding principles (GRI4, ISO 26000, UN Global Compact). We operate in close contact with the local context and create platforms for constructive dialogue with stakeholders.
Our tools provide you with a clear picture of your operational reality, and the risks and possibilities that you are facing. And we help you plan and operationalize the next steps.
We help you analyse and develop your sustainability performance and position your company. This will assist your assessment of what works and what doesn’t, and how to improve your sustainability performance. We make strategies translate into results.

Assisted by ASSET, Shift may perform a diagnosis of the organisation and its operations in relation to sustainability in four areas: Environment, Labour Rights, Human Rights and Business Ethics. The data is further validated by triangulation. Based on these results, Shift can assist you in designing efficient measures for value creating initiatives throughout the organisation.
ASSET bears reference to established reporting guidelines and systems for external validation and quality assurance (ISO 26000, GRI 4, UN Global Compact and OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises). That makes it compatible with existing standards and can assist in ensuring compliance with different existing principles.
