Strategies for purpose-led business

79% of people are more loyal to purpose-led brands according to respondents in a 2018 Cone/Porter Novelli Purpose Study.

The Financial Times defines this kind of social responsibility as ‘a business approach that contributes to sustainable development by delivering economic, social and environmental benefits for all stakeholders’.

In a nutshell, this means creating a business that not only does no harm, but also strives to do good. It’s all about balancing purpose and profit.

Although environmental awareness has increased significantly over the past few years, defining sustainability can be complex, often making it difficult to differentiate between true environmental responsibility and ‘greenwash’. At True Horizon, our mission is to simplify sustainability for businesses.


We work closely with businesses to understand their ethos and to align environmental and social strategies with corporate strategies.


There is no one-size-fits-all solution, so our targeted and bespoke service is designed to develop effective strategies, starting with quick wins and working towards setting and achieving longer term environmental and social goals.


We work as an extension to your team, providing our sustainability expertise to help your business increase efficiencies, reduce costs and enhance reputation.


Stakeholder engagement is at the core of what we do to ensure that any changes that are implemented suit the needs and objectives of groups both within and external to the business.


You can’t improve what you don’t measure. Our goal is to embed data-backed strategies within your business by developing streamlined processes without the admin burden, as well as monitoring & measuring progress and improvement.


We understand that SMEs often have very different requirements to bigger corporates when it comes to delivering environmental performance. It’s becoming increasingly common for businesses to provide evidence of how they manage environmental impact in order to become a preferred supplier or as a part of a project / client bid. If you’re struggling to capture your environmental initiatives and procedures and provide the necessary documentation, then you’re certainly not alone. That’s why we’ve developed a suite of tools designed specifically for SMEs.

"Nancy worked with us to establish our company CSR policy and strategy. She offered clear and concise guidance and we are really pleased with the results."

Alec Smith – Director, Artisan Surveyors

"A fantastic company to work with and highly recommended. Always willing to share valuable information on becoming more sustainable."

Patrick Crosley – Director, Stanbury Chameleon

"Nancy and I worked very closely on the implementation of environmental management systems to ISO 14001 for a variety of FTSE100 companies during our tenure at CBRE. I have no hesitation in recommending Nancy as she is very knowledgeable in environmental issues and has the distinct advantage of also being an engineer. She is world leading in her meticulous approach to environmental projects and I wish her every success with her business venture, which will no doubt thrive, as a result."

Paul Prendergast – Environmental Manager, Coats

"Nancy and I worked together at Goldman Sachs for over 18 months and throughout I found her to be highly committed and knowledgeable. She was responsible for the rollout of ISO 14001 accreditations across 15 of our offices, dispersed throughout EMEA. In this role she interfaced professionally with stakeholders at all levels of both our own internal business and external supply chain. Nancy was a pleasure to work with and I have no hesitation in commending her work."

Stephen Holford – EMEA Infrastructure Manager, Bloomberg LP

"Working with Nancy is an eye opening experience. You don't just look at how to reduce waste from the aspect of using less paper or plastic, but in terms of your in-house processes, suppliers and their sustainable practices as well as what other options you may (or may not) have. Nancy does not shame. She understands that some industries or processes are going to be CO2 heavy and so then looks at how you can at least offset that."
