Service with Minor Environmental Footprint
operàri comes from Latin and means - quite simply - to work. We strongly believe our work is a tangible expression of our being; in other words, our values take shape day after day in our actions. operàri sequitur esse, it was said: what we do always expresses what we are. We are like that. We support businesses to embrace transformational governance, aiming to adopt an ethical and values-based approach to culture and leadership resulting in greater shared value for the business, employees, investors, consumers and communities, as well as the environment. We encourage businesses to assess where they are on the transformational governance journey and to identify opportunities for improvement. We assist businesses to integrate the underlying values and principles of transformational governance — to be accountable, ethical, inclusive and transparent — in their internal and external activities, including throughout their supply chains. Transformational governance is good governance. It fosters an environment of trust, transparency and accountability; it also helps align an organisation’s purpose with the interests of society, building strong stakeholder relationships while effectively managing risks, gaining opportunities, creating and protecting value.
