Building a Green Future
What uplifts the planet uplifts us all.
We help corporations, small businesses, and individuals optimise their operations for maximum sustainability and lasting social impact.
WHAT WE DO
Raise Awareness & Take Action
Before we connect the dots, we help you define the dots.
Defining official benchmarks for sustainability is a step towards efficiently reaching those benchmarks. First Resource SG® demonstrates how the big picture is reflected in the details, helping you make decisions based on grand-scale social impact and profit.
Once we assess your needs, we compile information and metrics to:
- Communicate your sustainability goals with professional-quality presentations, infographics, and numbers.
- Ensure your company both benefits from and contributes to the local economy.
- Minimize your carbon footprint.
- Align with short-term and long-term UN standards for sustainability.
- Implement a data-driven business plan that seamlessly integrates sustainability and profitability.

ADVISORY & CONSULTANCY
Many companies are spending a fortune on sustainability analysis but do not yet have a plan for implementing their research in a profitable and equitable manner. Our experts can help you build a framework for bringing your sustainability goals to life.
STRATEGIC COMMUNICATIONS & REPORTING
We can help you strategically communicate to stakeholders your plan’s impact on sustainability and climate risk. Using different frameworks, such as the Future-Fit Business benchmark tool and the Global Reporting Initiative schema, we will deliver the message that your business is doing the right things for the right reasons.
INVESTOR SUSTAINABILITY SCREENING
Our experts can do a thorough evaluation of the sustainability performance of your business. We employ positive screening techniques using Future-Fit benchmark tool criteria for determining corporate resilience and sustainability and minimizing exposure to climate risk.
