Working with a future-fit mindset and methodology

At thl we recognise that business, society and the environment are part of an interconnected system and depend on one another to thrive. The scale and pace of change needed requires a holistic, science-based approach, focused on system value. Over the last four years we have focused on embedding a science-based, systems-focused sustainability framework throughout our business using the Future-Fit Business Benchmark.

We approach this as both a mindset and methodology, guiding our decision-making and activities from global strategy to country work programmes and Future-Fit Sustainability Action Plans for all branches.

Our commitment to becoming a future-fit business acknowledges the significant and rapid change needed to tackle the complex issues the world is facing, including the climate crisis. It is a way of thinking, a pathway and clear destination to aim for contributes to the aspiration of a socially just, economically inclusive, and environmentally restorative society.

Over time we aim to achieve all 23 future-fit 'Break-Even' sustainability goals, of which three are our top priority. We conduct an annual Health Check of our performance against the goals, please check out our Health Check showing our progress over the past four years

"We have continued our future-fit sustainability journey and share progress on the priority future-fit sustainability goals identified to address the highest impact areas for thl. Applying the system thinking and science-based approach that underpins the future-fit framework throughout the business is a key focus. We see this as both a mindset and methodology that informs our decisions and guides activities."
