SED Consulting

Sustainability Executive Development (SED) Consulting

Our mission is to build and operationalise a corporate culture of sustainability that embodies the ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) criteria. By applying SED’s environmental and socio-behavioural principles, our clients are equipped to partner effectively with multiple stakeholders to enable and ensure progress in Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), so as to grow employee, customer, investor and community trust and confidence.

ABOUT SED CONSULting

SED Consulting prepares corporations for excellence in sustainability development through a behavioural science approach. We help companies develop robust evidence for improved
ESG know-how and CSR reporting for green certifications.

Fundamentally, SED facilitates increased corporate participation in the conservation of the
world’s depleting natural resources, adaptation to climate change and overall positive
contribution to society.

SED Consulting’s vision is best represented by the lacewing featured in our logo. Lacewings feed on aphids which deplete the health of trees. Therefore, despite being only 1 to 1.5 cm in length, the unobtrusive yet significant lacewing is thus considered a biological control needed to sustain the plant’s health – the very goal that SED Consulting strives to be.
