Our self-led projects

To support our focus on the Sustainable Development Goals, we have designed and embarked on a self-led portfolio of work. Being self-directed is very important to us as it ensures we have freedom to work in an unrestricted and objective way in service of our chosen problem and opportunity areas.

Our self-led portfolio includes:
Circular Purpose Pathways
Working with the Queen Victoria Market Purpose Precinct to:
- Help connect visitors and customers with stallholders and the positive social impact they create
- Design and create circular products at the market by reframing “waste” materials as valuable resources
- Inspire visitors and customers to make and use circular products at the Purpose Precinct and at home
Aged Care
We all know there is much to improve within the aged care eco-system. We are reimagining an aged care client, family and staff experience that is person-centred, trauma-informed and employs smart technology to ensure the high quality health outcomes and service experiences.
Clean Energy
There are a lot of exciting advancements being made in clean energy. Our focus is to amplify the social benefits of these advancements, applying behaviour change to help people make informed decisions, take action and save money.
Circular resources
Using behaviour change knowledge and principles, we are designing and prototyping interventions that work towards reducing and eliminating soft plastics from consumer waste streams.

Strategy through action

Taking action bridges the gap between strategy, execution and implementation.
Customers at the heart of everything
Prototype and experiment to learn
Work in accelerated formats
Build the culture and energy that drives momentum
Behavioural design for positive change
Systemic thinking for powerful results
