About Futureproofed

 

Our mission

At Futureproofed we see climate change as one of the greatest threats to humanity  — on par with nuclear warfare, in fact — but also as an unprecedented opportunity for people, cities, and businesses to thrive. 

 

We believe our ability to reverse the climate crisis and build a fossil-free, circular and biodiverse society will determine our fate in the coming decades. Either we become the fools who let the climate change tragedy unfold, or we become the superhero generation who speed up and scale the transformation to an attractive fossil-free future. 

 

Our solutions 

At Futureproofed we use an outcome driven innovation approach: we always start from business challenges. Then, backed by data, we guide businesses to create more sustainable value while saving costs, reducing risks, developing new business opportunities, and reinforcing their brand.

Time and again, our customers see for themselves that the move towards a fossil-free and sustainable future helps to bring about very tangible business outcomes, today.

This is how we help to create sustainable value for our clients :

  • Our interactive carbon and SDG assessment tools help establish a baseline, set targets, monitor and manage climate, environmental, economic and social impact, and review performance.
  • Sustainable strategy development workshops, programs, or conferences help innovate existing and new business, using engaging and interactive co-creation methods. 
  • By raising awareness with motivational speeches, we help customers, stakeholders and coworkers move from a responsibility to an opportunity mindset. Along the same lines, we help craft and tell sustainable success stories.
  • Throughout the journey, Futureproofed guides on all levels by coaching and challenging teams and acting as a sparring partner in projects and strategic processes.

Our people culture

To grow Futureproofed we are looking for people who are the most talented, curious, dedicated, right across the organisation  —  from sales to account management, from expert advice and coaching to project management. 

We don’t want to be hiring just the smartest people, we are also looking for fun people, eager to share knowledge, to be constructive and flexible team players who can work independently where needed.

If you have skills, knowledge, energy and time, why would you devote these precious resources to Futureproofed?  We realise there are many other opportunities to contemplate, but this is what we have to offer: 

You will have to work hard, be creative and adapt to a wide variety of projects and customers. The quid pro quo is that you will have more responsibility, it will be more fun, you will learn and grow more, you will do meaningful work, and if things go well, you might even participate in the upside.
