Custom Engagements

Your organization has made big commitments. We can help you get there.

Forward-thinking organizations want to integrate sustainable business practices across all operations, decision-making, and long-term strategies.

However, aligning the interests of employees and stakeholders can be challenging, time consuming, and resource intensive.

ASI works with our partners and clients to offer custom support to help you achieve clarity and alignment with your team, department, organization, or community. It’s one thing to understand climate science and raise ambitions with bold targets toward net zero emissions. It’s quite another to take climate action with stakeholders who are juggling competing priorities.

Our Offerings

ASI’s custom engagements offer support to organizations that are interested in leading and working differently in the face of climate challenges.

Our offerings include online and in-person workshops, expert facilitation, engaging eLearning solutions, and other customized support to help you achieve clarity and alignment with your stakeholders.

eLearning

For Organizations

ASI develops customized eLearning solutions tailored to the specific needs of organizations looking to offer education and training to increase awareness of climate-related issues among their employees and stakeholders.

eLearning for organizations often cover topics such as climate science basics (climate and/or sustainability literacy), climate change trends impacting the organization or sector, organizational commitments to climate or sustainability, and how employees or other stakeholders can take action within their roles.

Facilitation

For Organizations, Conferences, & Events

To support organizational and sectoral change processes, sometimes what is needed most is facilitated dialogues or planning sessions with key stakeholders.

ASI draws on our many years of experience with designing engagement processes, hosting, facilitation, and innovation labs to co-develop a process to help you effectively navigate change.
