Organisation/Company Description

At 2degrees, we believe that business is key to solving the greatest challenge of our time: how 9 billion people can live well and sustainably on a single planet with finite resources.

This is also the biggest challenge facing business - how companies can survive and thrive in a time of turbulent change. They can only do this by adopting the principles of sustainable business, embracing greater economic efficiency, driving innovation and managing environmental and social risks.

We believe that most of the knowledge and capability needed to address the challenge already exists somewhere and that we can help unlock this opportunity. That’s why we’ve developed a unique and innovative approach using our online collaboration platform and specialist facilitation processes to connect the people, knowledge and organisations to solve this challenge. We call this fully-linked collaboration.

We’re a fast growth company and we work with some of the world’s largest companies and their supply chains to deliver programmes that have the power to transform their business sectors. Our clients include Asda-Walmart, the European Commission, GSK, Grant Thornton, Kingfisher, RBS, and Unilever.
