Tendris: the impact of a sustainability role model

Tendris and its subsidiaries are a group of companies with the ambition to lead the activation and motivation movement towards a sustainable way of living globally. In various different markets Tendris companies show the business case of realising industry shifts by launching sustainable products in an entrepreneurial way. The group’s portfolio currently consists of companies such as: Lemnis, XXimo and The New motion, while an example of a divested business is energy company Oxxio.

Although sustainability is a core element of what Tendris stands for, its shareholders and management wanted to better understand the impact the group is making. Steward Redqueen was asked to design a pragmatic methodology that would provide clear insights and execute the impact assessment.

Annemieke Jordans, director of Tendris says: “Steward Redqueen’s approach was spot-on. There is a lot of talking about impact, but it was immediately clear that this consultancy has actually done such projects before. They have both the experience and the intellectual flexibility to present a very useful report within an ambitious time slot. We have used it in our discussion with key stakeholders and it can serve as a basis for future impact assessments.”
