SUSTAINABILITY CERTIFICATION

The S2M Certification is a programme of corporate improvement, verification and recognition, which has three components: Sustainability, Measurement and Mediation. The Sustainability component uses the Classic SSR Assessment and an 80% score is required for certification. The Measurement component uses the EvalHexa® Tool to assess the impact of two SSR projects (one internal, one external). The Mediation component uses the Stakeholder SSR Dialogue HexagonTool® to formulate project priorities and assess SSR progress. Initial certification normally takes 1-2 years and results in a public S2M Certification Achievement Award, with annual recertification.

IMPACT OF PROJECTS

The Eval-Hexa® Tool measures the probability of impact of a project, even before the project begins. The process involves meetings with various stakeholders, for instance, the business community or the project community. The tool, by means of a series of algorithms, determines the probability of impact of the project, which helps to decide if it should continue as it is proposed, or if modifications must be made or abandoned for a new one.

Before the workshop, our team of experts will help to identify your critical universe of stakeholders for the project. The scope includes moderation of the workshop and technical support for the success of its development as well as for setting the strategy ahead of it.

STAKEHOLDER’ DIALOGUES

The Stakeholder SSR Dialogue uses the HexagonTool®, which is based on an award-winning model of stakeholder engagement, based on public choice theory and game theory. The interactive, online tool, which is administered in a workshop forum (with more than 1,000 sessions run around the world), allows constructive, consensus-making dialogue across the 6 key stakeholder sectors: 1) government, 2) business, 3) civil society, 4) communities, 5) international organizations and 6) media. Using a democratic blind scoring methodology, the tool ensures no single stakeholder or representative has undue influence over prioritized issues and actions.
