Created in 2010, Greenfish is a Belgian consulting firm focused on sustainable engineering. Our clients represent companies and industries who wish to improve their ecological, social, and financial impact. The firm is active in Belgium and France, with headquarters in Brussels. Greenfish offers 2 types of complementary services: Expertise Consulting and Green Solutions • Greenfish engages green talents to help companies achieve their sustainable goals by offering consulting solutions in Energy Efficiency, Quality-Health-Safety-Environment, Industrial Engineering & Optimization, Sustainable Construction, Project Management, Corporate Strategy, Supply Chain & Procurement,… • Created in 2016, the Green Solutions department develops sustainability services. We create a response to problems submitted by our clients, coordinating our consultants work, and delivering the final result. Our focus is on Smart Energy, Carbon and Water Footprint, Zero Waste, and Mindset Change. Sustainability is at the heart of our business, and the values we strive for are Integrity, Commitment and Responsibility. Hence, it was fundamental for us to reinforce our commitment towards our stakeholders, society and the environment, with the framework of the SDGs in mind.
The Shift helps members to make use of the global framework of the UN Sustainable Development Goals to map their societal ambitions.
3. Good health
Several initiatives are being set up to invite Greenfish staff to be fit and stay healthy. In 2017 employees are encouraged to run the 20km of Brussels with United Fund for Belgium and a sports centre is made available once a week with planned activities.
7. Affordable and clean energy
Greenfish’s core business is to help its clients with smart energy solutions. Our consultants work for clients that provide energy to the entire Belgian territory, and strive for renewable means of production. Energy monitoring, audit and efficiency, as well as reduction of greenhouse gas emissions are some of our main interests. Greenfish is also concerned about its own energy consumption and moved beginning of 2016 into new offices in a BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) certified building in Brussels.
9. Innovation and infrastructure
Innovation is key for Greenfish activity, but also to address the societal and environmental challenges we are facing today. Our consultants are expected to develop creative and innovative client oriented solutions, on the technological side. We are also partnering with an ecosystem of organizations and companies that offer specific, precise, innovative solutions and techniques. Nevertheless, innovation is also part of Greenfish’s DNA: we constantly reinvent ourselves and our ways of working to maximize our positive impact.
12. Responsible consumption and production
Greenfish facilitates the integration of sustainability at the heart of its clients’ business model, to foster responsible production, and in this way influence their customers towards more sustainable consumption choices. We help our clients to limit their energy consumption, to reduce their CO2 emissions, and operate in a more circular way. We also facilitate mindset and behaviour change to achieve these goals. At Greenfish, we are also aware that commuting is an important issue, especially in Belgium. Companies can implement sustainable mobility strategies to contribute to the reduction of fossil fuel use, of CO2 emissions and of stress due to the number of cars on the road. We want to do our part: our offices are easily accessible through public transport, and we are currently working on developing a sustainable mobility policy. Our purpose is to raise awareness among our stakeholders, and to propose softer alternatives to the unipersonal car to our employees, including promotion of carpooling and intermodal commuting. We also offer support to our clients to develop innovative mobility solutions.
17. Partnerships for the goals
At Greenfish, we believe partnerships and synergies are key to a more sustainable society. We partner with universities and schools to help students find their first professional challenge and help them on various research projects. We believe it is essential to develop strong ties with local associations around us. To bring new innovative sustainable solutions to our clients, we also enroll into several strategic partnerships with other companies, which offer very specific solutions that we can bring to our clients. We believe working together is key to creative solutions and creating shared value.
