Project Overview

We are looking to implement a CRM as our organization, Science Based Targets Network (SBTN) moves from its startup chapter, and begins to scale. We envision this project encompassing three phases:

Phase 1: Discovery
-Develop a comprehensive understanding of SBTN's organizational structure, processes, and workflow.
-Explore various use cases and requirements for the CRM system.
-Identify key functionalities needed to address SBTN's unique needs and challenges.

Phase 2: Consultation
-Provide detailed recommendations on selecting an appropriate CRM system, considering factors such as scalability, customization options, and integration capabilities.
-Present a proposed implementation plan, outlining timelines, resources required, and budget considerations.
-Conduct stakeholder consultations to gather feedback and ensure alignment with SBTN goals.

Phase 3: Configuration
-Work closely with the SBTN team to configure the chosen CRM system to align with specific requirements and use cases.
-Migrate existing data from legacy systems and ensure data integrity throughout the process.
-Provide training for our staff on managing and maximizing the new system, along with comprehensive documentation on system use and maintenance.
-Offer initial support following the implementation to ensure a smooth transition and address any issues that arise during the early stages of use.

The Science Based Targets Network (SBTN) is a collaboration of scientists and sustainability experts from over 80 leading organizations: global environmental non-profits, international agencies and mission-driven entities. Over 2,600 companies have already set science-based targets for climate through the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). Science-based targets for nature help companies adopt a holistic roadmap for action on climate and nature in the face of mounting environmental and social crises. Building resilience for nature and business, they can help companies turn risk into opportunity, and act as a key lever of change towards an equitable, nature-positive, net-zero economy.

This project will allow us to:
-Increase SBTN’s reach and impact by effectively managing relationships with donors, companies, cities and other stakeholders.
-Improve operational efficiency by centralizing data and streamlining workflows, reducing manual tasks, and minimizing duplication of efforts across functions.
-Use data and analytics from the CRM system to inform strategic decision-making, identify growth opportunities, and allocate resources effectively.
-Build capacity and scalability by implementing scalable processes, investing in staff training, and leveraging technology to support growth initiatives.

We have scoped this project. We also understand readiness stages ( Implementation Vision and Plan, Strong Executive Sponsorship, Internal CRM Aptitude, Commitment to Continued Learning, Implementation Resources, Data Migration and Integrity). While we are not 100% ready (we hope you can help us with. this!), we are completely committed to making this project a success.


Nonprofit Overview

We enable companies and cities to play a vital role in creating an equitable, nature positive, net-zero future using science-based targets

Nature is our life source and the origin of every raw material required to produce the products and services we depend upon. Companies and cities can most effectively stabilize all Earth’s systems – nature and climate – when they know how to take the right actions in the right places. Science-based targets for nature and climate provide them with this guidance.

When businesses and cities incorporate science-based targets to tackle both nature loss and climate change into their strategies they create immense opportunities and become more resilient. There is no time to lose. We invite companies and cities to start their journeys now towards achieving nature and climate science-based targets and help build a future where they are operating within Earth’s limits while meeting customers’ and citizens’ needs.
