Your team is your biggest asset. When capacity is built and shared across teams, they can speak the same language and achieve greater things. Heartwood delivers customized capacity building programs for organizations, brands, buying companies, producers and certifiers on topics that include: living wage, living income, social safeguarding, climate justice, and sustainability labels.
The path to positive change is not often a straight one, and can rarely be travelled alone. We help companies and organizations design programs, craft standards and develop responsible procurement and human resource policies.
We are working with clients to understand national legislation and ESG reporting guidelines, select voluntary sustainability schemes, strengthen assurance systems, and build due diligence frameworks.
Heartwood helps design practical tools that measure what matters and turn the information into action. We help design and advise on leading living wage gap analysis tools, living income methodologies, human rights and decent work KPIs, monitoring protocols, and mixed-methods research.
Developing a new initiative or project and need someone to bounce ideas off of? Whether you want an advisor, a reviewer or friendly sparring partner, we can help you think through your options and consider which next best steps to take.
