Achill Management

The Legal Sustainability Alliance is hosted and run by Achill Management – we provide the strategy, management and support services to the 170 member organisations.

Achill Management is dedicated to helping organisations benefit from the triple bottom line – people planet and profit. Our approach blends our experience in change and organisational development with our expertise in environmental sustainability to ensure your business is more sustainable, more productive and more profitable without costing the earth.

Our work covers three main areas:

Strategic and organisational development

Developing Sustainable Business

Effective Communication

Achill Management provides consultancy interventions, programmes and workshops, as well as running the highly successful podcast service.

Strategic and organisational development

Sustainability is not just about the environment – we believe that to be truly sustainable organisations need to think strategically about all their resources whether it is people or planet.

We undertake large and small-scale evaluations of projects and organisations to assess impact, value for money and outcomes and we support organisational change, development and growth to help achieve all three. So, whether you need help with developing or revising your strategy and business planning, with an organisational restructure or redesign, or are looking for board level support Achill Management can help you.

Developing Sustainable Business

Achill Management offers a range of interventions and programmes both as stand-alone modules or as part of wider consultancy programme, which cover all aspects of developing and embedding sustainable practices.

These include:

Climate Emergency to Climate Resilience

A new programme to support organisations move from inaction and a sense of panic to a sustainable managed programme of actions and policies to improve their resilience. We start with an audit of where you are, then devise a series of interventions from policies, staff engagement to carbon measurement, target setting and realistic KPIs to help your business be climate resilient.

Sustainability 101

Despite the constant conversations for many businesses sustainability is not a core priority and many are left wondering where to start. If you are feeling left behind by the current frenzy of conversation about plastics, climate and system change we can help build a clear, practical plan to enable you and your teams to move forwards positively, focusing on what is most material to your business.

Executive Coaching

Leadership is lonely. Sustainability leaders are particularly prone to burn-out and “eco-anxiety.” Our Executive Coaching packages are tailored to meet your individual requirements, but all offer powerful support and focus when it is most needed.

Sustainable Development Goals & understanding how they impact on your purpose and business model

Unsure why the Sustainable Development Goals matter to your future success? Struggling to define what your business really stands for? Keen to future-proof your product portfolio? Working with your senior team we can bring the constructive challenge and insight of a trusted, critical friend, and help broker a innovative conversation within the business.

Interim management and network hosting

As well as working with the collaboration of law firms within the LSA we host sustainable networks for other clients including private equity and local authorities and charities.

Effective Communication – getting your sustainable message out there

Achill Management are the team behind the highly successful Planet Pod podcast – a wide ranging podcast that brings insight and understanding to the sustainability debate. From politicians to protestors, scientists to entrepreneurs we talk to the people behind the headlines – informing, entertaining and diverting our listeners week by week.
