ABOUT US

reSimple

With a view to create awareness for a socially, economically and environmentally sustainable world and to promote sustainable development, we quit our insufficient and unilateral jobs and founded reSimple. With this step, we have taken an initiative to promote proactive movement as opposed to reactive responses.

In order to create change for global sustainability and to realize the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, it is pivotal for companies, the civil society and the public to create collaborative partnerships. Our aims at reSimple are to create common value by bringing different stakeholders together, to promote and help organisations adopt a proactive approach, thereby creating competitive advantage in terms of reputation, credibility, and brand equity, as well as to promote transparent and fair organisations through sustainable risk management.

We provide organisations with the means to increase their positive environmental, social and economic impacts and assess their compliance with any legislation and standard that seeks to promote sustainability and provide them guidance on how to implement such regulations. We develop and manage corporate social responsibility projects on their behalf and provide them and their staff with the relevant training. We help organisations respond to the demands of the current trends and requirements by including sustainability reporting, stakeholder engagement and code of conduct consultancy in our services.

OUR MISSION

is to create common value with a view to promoting sustainable development by bringing together companies, the civil society and the public.

OUR VALUES
