What are we doing for tomorrow?
The Purpose Cards Sustainability Team Kit (currently only available in German) is designed to support you in making your team or business more sustainable: initiate important conversations, understand your leverage points, develop solutions together and decide where to start.
For a sustainable and future-proof economy
How may businesses and organisations operate more sustainably? Even if we are aware of the urgency of that question, it's not always easy to initiate change and take action — especially in businesses where many people with different perspectives work together.
Making businesses more sustainable is a complex and multi-layered challenge that affects the entire organisation and requires the cooperation of people from different disciplines, who consider and enact the necessary changes in their daily work.
30 key questions organisations need to ask themselves right now
With this Team Kit we want to support you in coming together as a team in order to learn about sustainability and start working on solutions for your organisation.
The insights, questions and ideas in the kit are the distillation of intensive research and many interviews and tests with industry and sustainability experts. The primary focus of this edition is on ecological sustainability.
The Purpose Cards consist of two parts that you can use together or independently in workshops:
❶ Create a shared understanding
Use the quiz cards to understand key facts and concepts related to organisational sustainability — from circular economy to product emissions and climate-positive companies. The playful approach facilitates important conversations in your team and allows people to share their own experiences, ideas and concerns.
❷ Develop ideas and take action
How might you make your organisation more sustainable? Use the action cards to reflect on the challenges and opportunities for your company — from the first sustainable steps to the big questions that affect the core of your business. By discussing and sorting the cards, you're taking the first important decisions towards more sustainability.
Use the cards to build a shared knowledge base, initiate discussions and develop a sustainability strategy that will be carried forward by as many people as possible within your organisation. Foster ownership on an individual and on a collective level, prioritise measures and take the first important steps towards more sustainability.
For teams, coaches, managers and employees
The Team Kit is for people in businesses and institutions who want to take steps towards more sustainability in their organisation. The organisation may be large or small, a start-up or an established company, developing products or services, working in an educational context or in the non-profit sector: We have designed the Team Kit to be as open as possible. Let's begin!
»Sustainability is not a task for specialists, because it can only succeed if everyone recognises their part and contributes to finding solutions. The journey begins by opening a space for new thoughts.«
