Living With A Green Heart

LWGH Social Sustainability Certificate

The purpose of the standard is to measure and identify employees’ mindset and willingness to make a change towards the new economy and then suggest the activities needed at the individual, team, and corporate level to reach the start-up mindset in every individual employee – Green Heart Warriors – engaged, healthy, happy, and loyal members of the corporate core.


For the past 50 years, humans have tried to compete with robots in the desire to be as efficient as they are. However, we have managed to make robots a lot more powerful than we are. The era of digitization, robotization, and Industry 4.0 brought about awareness as to which qualities are essential for the transition to Industry 5.0, which will be based on the synergistic collaboration of humans and machines. The main added value that people bring to the table is in fact their humanity. Once all processes have been made efficient and technological performance has peaked, it is crucial that they are operated and overseen by someone who lives with a mindset of shared wellbeing, balance, and social belonging.

Why Certificate: Employee Wellbeing and Engagement

We all know that a fundamental transformation in how we do our business is just a step away. AI and automation are both replacing the work of human beings. The skills companies are looking for all over the world are rapidly changing. The way we work is changing. The COVID-19 pandemic merely additionally accelerated all those changes. We need our employees’ creativity, resilience, and intelligence to successfully differentiate and compete in today’s world.


More and more companies are becoming aware that employees cannot be ordered to be creative or commanded by standard operating procedures to be resilient. Employees hold the keys to those things and when they are healthy and feel well, they are ready to put them into the service of the company. Companies have recognized the importance of igniting and keeping their employees’ entrepreneurial spirit alive, and have put as one of their main priorities a working environment where their employees can flourish and be their very best.

Why Certificate: CSRD reporting & Sales KPI

UN sets the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable development goals (SDGs) as a new, universal set of goals, targets, and indicators that UN member states will be expected to use to frame their agendas and political policies over the next 15 years. All 17 goals were set as urgent calls to action by all countries – both developed and developing – in a global partnership.


The EU’s Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) required large companies to publish regular reports on their environmental and social impact activities. The CSRD covers all relevant environmental, social, and governance (ESG) elements, and aims to increase investments in truly sustainable activities across the European Union. EU rules on non-financial reporting currently apply to large public-interest companies with more than 500 employees. It is predicted that in coming years, SMEs will be included in this reporting as well.

What is your next step

There is a famous saying from Peter Drucker: “What gets measured gets measured.” Organizational performance in terms of social sustainability could be measured as well. As a part of the Living with a Green Heart initiative, a standard and certification system has been developed that could help companies track how well are they doing in terms of their employees’ wellbeing and how much “entrepreneurial” spirit they have.
