Here at Net Balance, we help clients accomplish their sustainability goals with a fresh, enthusiastic, and rigorous style that stems from our values and our deep experience.
Our approach to sustainability is simple – define the issues, identify risks and opportunities, and appropriately manage them as you would manage any other business operation. We bring this practical viewpoint to all of our sustainability services, and complement its simplicity with the extra care and commitment it takes to help your organisation successfully embed sustainability.
Net Balance aims to work with clients and employees who are serious in their attitudes and capacity to move towards a more sustainable business model for their own benefit, the economy, broader society and the environment. We do this by considering the following in our approach:
Net Balance Foundation
We express our commitment to sustainability by operating a unique organisational structure in which we share our resources with the Net Balance Foundation.
The Foundation is a not-for-profit think tank specifically set up to undertake open-source sustainability research and provides services to small to medium enterprises, non-government organisations, not-for-profit groups, and industry and professional associations on a not-for-profit basis. In this way we seek to attain our vision to be part of every organisation’s sustainability journey. Our clients over the years have included Rugby SA, World Vision, Australian Conservation Foundation, Music Aviva, United Church of Australia Funds Management, St. Vincent’s Hospital, Environment Institute of Australia, and other SMEs and industry associations.
At Net Balance, we strive to step closer to achieving our vision with the work we do every day. Our vision is not an expression of what we are doing now, but where we aspire to be. It is an image of the future we seek to create.
Our vision is:
To be part of every organisation’s sustainability journey.
Net Balance makes major contributions to the progression towards a sustainable future in every organisation through Advice, Assurance, and Research.
Net Balance’s values serve as the guiding principles to fulfil our vision to be part of every organisation’s sustainability journey. Our values have been formed to be inspiring, supportive and clear, so they shape individual behaviour in a corporate context, provide certainty and boundaries, and are unambiguous.
