To prepare organisations to be prosperous and resilient over the long-term and a core part of the global sustainability solution.

Our vision.

Morphosis is the partner of choice for organisations seeking transformational sustainability results.

Our Approach.

Morphosis creates forward-sighted, value-focused and living sustainability strategies that are integral to companies, owned by stakeholders and simple to implement. Our approach is grounded on deep practical experience and understanding of critical success factors for corporate sustainability programs. We work with our six STRATEGY DEVELOPMENT PRINCIPLES below.

  • Stakeholder MOTIVATION.

Ensure your business leaders and other key stakeholders are engaged and taking ownership of the strategy, helping to smooth the approval process and supporting leadership of it over time.

Enable staff to embrace it within their specific roles and personal interests.

  • Practical Implementation.

Establish the smart KPIs, tools, systems, procedures and roles needed for good operationalisation and quality reporting.

  • Simple Communication.

Structure and present the strategy to ensure all relevant stakeholders will appreciate it and move to action.

  • Material FOUNDATION.

Focus on the sustainability issues that are most material to your business and your key stakeholders.

Interpret the systemic trends that will reshape your priority list of material issues over time, from climate change to digitalisation.


Develop vision that is shared by your leaders, staff and other stakeholders, helping to ensure alignment on the destination and the inspiration and motivation needed to sustain the journey there.

  • Corporate Integration.

Interface well with your corporate strategy, structure, values and culture, to improve focus, ownership and accountability.
