Contingent helps small and medium size companies meet their sustainability goals (e.g. B Corp, Net-Zero, setting science-based targets), with a 1-to-1 expert coach and our Sustainability Operating System (SOS).

Getting sustainability right isn't easy. Making credible progress, meeting customer requirements (e.g. questionnaires) and aligning to your own business objectives can be overwhelming. Especially with a lack of time, resources and in-house sustainability expertise. The old way e.g. consultancy isn’t cost-effective, doesn’t enable you to embed sustainability long-term and advice is generic.

Contingent provides businesses with a new way to achieve their sustainability goals, by delivering a 1-to-1 coaching platform, including an action plan, tools and all the guidance you need.
