"The corporate members of the Embedding Project were increasingly being asked to contextualise their sustainability performance. They wanted to understand how they could factor socio-ecological limits into their corporate strategy and goal setting processes, and were being directed towards many different frameworks and tools designed to aid this process. Many of these leaders felt overwhelmed, and told us they needed help in making sense of it all. As a result, the Embedding Project assembled a Global Community of Practice (CoP) on Contextual Strategy-making where interested companies participated in a process to bring these ideas and tools together under an overarching framework to help explain how companies are approaching the concept of context."

"Since the beginning of the sustainability context conversation, we have seen the introduction of various methodologies, frameworks, tools, and ideas that aim to support the embedding of context into sustainability performance. There is little doubt that resources and initiatives such as Planetary Boundaries, The Doughnut of Planetary Boundaries and Social Foundations, the MultiCapital Scorecard, the Science-based Targets Initiative, The Natural Step, The Future-Fit Business Benchmark, Reporting 3.0, Net Positive, and even the Sustainable Development Goals have all shaped the evolution of this space. Our free “Road to Context” guide lays out four key steps along with resources and initiatives can help you contextualise your core strategy and develop contextual goals. We are applying these steps in a set of pilot companies and will continue to update our guide as we learn more."
