Our motivation

The world we once lived in is gone. We find ourselves in a changed world, one with less resources, more poverty and a blind eye. Many people believe that the world is still okay, global warming does not exist and that forward thinkers are simply eccentric. The world is clouded with opinions and perceptions and a true sense of honesty with regards to what is really going on in the world, has been lost.

There is a sense of honesty in reflecting, and by doing so, we are able to find more, we are able to see further and we are able to find real solutions.

Our approach

Sustainability Truthing is a sustainability and thought leadership consultancy, based in South Africa. We work with forward thinking, brave business leaders seeking to inspire and implement positive change for a more prosperous and enduring world. We recognise, upfront in our engagements, that the world has changed and that it will take brave leadership to create the kind of world we need to sustain our future.

We pride ourselves on the ability to develop an understanding of complex issues at a broad systemic level, identifying the change levers at an operational level and implementing strategies to drive sustainable change.

We harness the power of business to improve the livelihood of people and ecosystems and create meaning for people through connecting them to each other and the planet.

Our service offering
