Revealing the Next Forefront in Institutional Leadership

One of the world’s largest aquariums sought Foresight’s support to solidify their position as sustainability leaders by honing their strategy for assessing difficult-to-measure environmental impacts in areas such as purchasing, animal medicines, and public awareness of the museum’s conservation and sustainability-related efforts. Foresight consulted with 13 stakeholders from across the Shedd’s departments who are involved in the collection of sustainability-related metrics to develop a rich, systems-based understanding of their challenges in pursuing greater sustainability, and supplemented this effort with insights from peer institutions, and a thorough review of relevant and transferrable sustainability measurement standards from multiple industries.

Recognizing that the challenge to further embed and integrate sustainability priorities institution-wide was fundamentally one of leadership, communications, and management in addition to data collection, Foresight recommended a transformative and holistic approach to accountability that included a new, cross-departmental measurement tool and process, accompanied by a collaborative cross-departmental implementation and communications plan to activate staff leadership and engagement.
