Roots for Sustainability (R4S) is a social impact agency that designs, implements and evaluates transformational projects for organisations in the fields of sustainability, social impact and inclusive businesses in order to build a more inclusive, regenerative and sustainable economy.

R4S has an extended and deep connection with the B Corp community, as well as proven relevant and broad experience in providing sustainability strategy consulting services to SMEs, large and multinational companies. Both factors allow R4S to successfully provide tailored made and modular transformational services, that take into account the starting point and particular needs of the company, in order to guide and support its journey towards strategically integrating sustainability and achieving the B Corp certification.

In this respect, 100% of the companies R4S has advised and supported in their B Corp processes are now B Corp certified.

Service experience

BIA Advisory

R4S provides impact management services for organisations that are beginning their journey on sustainability measurement and assessment, as a first step for improving and reporting social and environmental impact and, ultimately, becoming B Corp certified.

R4S’s value proposition is designed to successfully respond to business challenges of companies of different sizes, sectors and with diverse needs (starting point, goals to be met, available resources, etc.). And depending on the purpose of the assessment and the maturity level of the company in terms of measurement, the scope, depth and modules of the solution provided are different.

The expected outcomes of this type of services are the improvement of the company’s BIA score (or other relevant standards’ assessment tools), as a result of implementing the improvement action plan designed for the organisation -and preferably the certification of the firm as a B Corp- and the progress of the company in its effort towards gaining a more mature sustainability integration status.

We are proud to work with relevant organisations like Ferrer, Grupo Consorcio, Holaluz or Teresa Carles Healthy Foods, among others.
