    Driving Sustainable Impact Begins with You

    Current trends reveal stakeholders demanding urgent sustainability action, yet achieving scalable and speedy impact remains a widespread challenge. 2023 marked the halfway point to our UN SDG commitments. The latest reports show we are significantly off-track, emphasizing the need for immediate, impactful action.

    Businesses must now actively integrate impact management into their strategies to overcome these challenges and secure a sustainable future. For enterprises, this means taking steps to integrate impact management practices at the core of business governance strategy and operations becomes urgent and important.

    Why is this necessary and different from ESG?

    “SDG Impact Standards are management practice standards. Leading change through transparency and reporting alone may be too slow in terms of the quantum and speed of change needed to put the world on a more sustainable path and achieve the SDGs.

    Also, using reporting as the driver for behavioural change can lead to form over substance and unintended consequences as the primary motivators tend to be marketing communications or compliance, but not on decision-making with the purpose to deliver impact.”

    Peadar Duffy

    Founder Director SoluxR

    Refreshingly challenging - significant benefit

    I worked with Syntegra on a board level organisational excellence project and found the experience to refreshingly challenging. The intellectual rigour which is always evident in Axel is matched by a supreme work ethic. Together they set a uniquely high bar indeed. I benefited significantly from the engagement as did the client organisation.

    Dr Victoria Hurth

    University of Cambridge Judge Business School, Visiting Fellow

    Engaging Axel on the topic of governance can't possibly be a mistake

    I have worked closely with Axel over the past 4 years whilst we undertook the challenging task of co-convening the first International Standard on Guidance for Governance of Organisations (ISO37000).

    I cannot recommend Axel highly enough due to a rare combination of experience and commitment to the topic of how to achieve the best governing system for an organisation - along with a highly advanced set of analytical skills around the topic. These skills are sharpened by a genuine and humble approach to solving the knotting questions that come with the territory. As such, he is honest when he doesn't fully understand a topic and is willing to adjust his views when presented with better evidence.

    Axel's serious yet relaxed style of working makes him a pleasure to be engaged with. He is also one of the most generous people I know - if he is able to help then he will do his very best to, even when this involves sacrifice on his end. In summary, engaging Axel on the topic of governance can't possibly be a mistake. It is more than likely he is already highly competent in the area, and if not, he would be honest in letting you know the limits of his skills, break new ground if needed, or point you in the right direction.

    Regional Standards Manager, Microsoft

    Organizations that are dealing with complex issues and wanting a clear path forward would certainly benefit from working with Axel

    I am a standards professional working for Microsoft. In this role I work on several international standards committees to provide guidance to organizations to help them develop information and technology strategies within a robust governance framework.

    For the last few years, I have worked with Axel Kravatzky as a co-editor on the standard “ISO 37000 Guidance for the Governance of Organizations”. In his role as editor and co-convenor of the international committee, Axel has brought a world of knowledge, research and real-world experience to the project. This has helped infuse the standard with the latest academic research on organizational governance, but also kept it relevant and useful for any organization across the world.

    I have personally learnt a great deal from working with Axel and talking through the theory, principles, and actual practices of governance. In our many and varied discussions, he has been able to illustrate his perspectives by pointing to examples, research papers, literature, and his own extensive library of practices. This depth of knowledge combined with his ability to clearly articulate the issues and consequences of actions is hugely beneficial.

    Axel is also a natural leader – his extensive international experience, quiet disposition, understated passion and deliberate approach means that the committee gives him time and attention and is happy to follow his lead.

    Organizations that are dealing with complex issues and wanting a clear path forward would certainly benefit from working with Axel.
