Every enterprise registered in Latvia can apply to Sustainability Index to get their non-financial performance evaluation. In the project the consultants worked on identifying ways to raise public awareness of the importance of sustainable business values and designing a strategy that would change the perception of sustainability in the eyes of public.

    "It was valuable to hear and see view from those which have not been involved in our previous activities. The work done by consultants confirmed that some of our own ideas previously rejected as not so important or useful should be reviewed. As a result we have agreed to organize one of activities proposed by consultants - Sustainability Week. Thank you for inspiring us! I enjoyed meetings with young, dedicated consultants which tried their best to reach the objective set in the beginning."
