Advisory Service

The SBN Advisory offers one on one, bespoke, expert sustainability advice to the business community.

There is increasing momentum from the business community to take action on sustainability. The SBN Advisory provides the specialist support businesses need to accelerate their progress along the sustainability maturity curve.

We are focused on helping businesses understand and define their strategic sustainability direction. We can help you answer some of the following questions:

  1. Our business is doing a number of things around sustainability but we don’t really know what’s next, how to prioritise or what our strategy is. Can you help?
  2. The time is ripe for us to take action but we don’t know where to start. Can you help?
  3. We have an idea of what we want to do but we are not specialists. Can you help?

For more information on our services please take a look at our Advisory Services Summary. We offer a 20% discount on advisory services for our SBN members.


We have worked with a wide range of New Zealand businesses including Icebreaker, New Zealand King Salmon and Alsco.

Meredith Dawson-Lawry, Global Sustainability, Quality & Compliance Manager from Icebreaker, said:

“In creating our first Transparency report, we chose to partner with the Sustainable Business Network. Their input on the format, content, data crunching and copy writing of the report was invaluable. Their data analysis was particularly impactful, as they were able to take our raw data and translate it into meaningful insights. The team at SBN were fantastic to work with and we look forward to collaborating on future projects.”  

Jemma McCowan, General Manager of Marketing at New Zealand King Salmon, said:

“We’ve been using SBN’s Advisory service since December 2016 to explore a deeper approach to our sustainability strategy across the business. We’ve enjoyed the SBN approach which marries a skilled advisory service with a real consideration for our company’s needs and context – whilst still asking the tough questions, and challenging the status quo. We’re looking forward to completing the project and launching into the next stage of our journey – and I’m sure SBN will be right beside us in future projects.”

So why wait? We’re here to help your business succeed over the long-term and take its place as part of a truly sustainable New Zealand.
