Strategy

Depending on where you currently stand, GoBlu offers several approaches to strategy setting that can be tailored to your particular needs.

Starting out fresh? Kick-Start helps inspire internal leaders, define specific targets, and develop a strategy to roll out to the team.

Already have goals or a target in place? Laser Focus helps you build an actionable strategy in order to achieve a pre-defined sustainability target or goal.

Ready for radical change? 360 is a comprehensive strategy development process that helps you examine and incorporate a full range of perspectives.

Looking for a boost on your current strategy? Recharge evaluates and updates your current strategy, incorporating changes to internal and external contexts.

Technical Knowledge Support

Technical topics such as dyeing and finishing, chemical substitution, resource efficiency, or reduction of emissions might be unfamiliar or intimidating, particularly for non-technical teams. GoBlu has the expertise to guide and support you and your team in understanding these topics, empowering you to make important decisions in a considered way.

Training and Education

Knowledge is not a limited resource. Help your team get the information they need in order to succeed. Below are examples

Technical Topics: These trainings make topics such as dyeing, resource efficiency, chemicals, and waste approachable to those who are new to them, linking usable information to relevant products and roles.

Empowered Sustainability: These trainings help Sustainability teams understand the perspectives of their colleagues, understand technical concerns, or get up to speed on the ever-changing topics and key issues related to sustainability. Individual mentoring is also available.

ReDesign: Get designers, product developers, and buyers inspired and on board with new ways of thinking and helpful techniques that they can implement right away in product design and development.

BuyingBlu: This training curriculum helps buyers and product developers accelerate their understanding of sustainability as it relates to their day to day work. Topics covered will help accelerate the rate at which sustainable materials and processes are used within their brand’s supply chain, and helps them understand responsible purchasing practices and how to evaluate supply chain partners.

Sustainable Change: Examine your culture and find ways to successfully integrate sustainability into your particular business. VIA: Our VIA tool allows individuals and teams to take training at their own pace. This Visual, Interactive, and Approachable platform can be adapted to various topics and audiences, and can incorporate your specific goals, terminology, or requirements.

Coaching

Sometimes internal champions need a champion of their own. GoBlu offers coaching for individuals who are driving the sustainability effort within their companies, whether they are from Management, CR, Sustainability, or other divisions. A custom program will be developed based on the needs of the individual. A GoBlu mentor will host regular virtual and/or in person sessions, drawing on the strengths of the full GoBlu team, to build their knowledge, increase their confidence, or share the load.
