About New Angles

New Angles is a consultancy working to change business, one leader at a time, one company at a time. New Angles works with organisations in all sectors, public and private, and with companies in all industries, from shock absorber manufacturers to bankers to energy companies to pet food ingredients suppliers... Our goal is to support business leaders in making all the transformations they need to see in their organisations in order to progress on the journey towards a positive impact business model.

New Angles uses springboard tools and dashboards to help leaders shift their paradigms about business, to change the conversations they have with each other, with their teams, and with their stakeholders. We get closely involved in the nitty-gritty of making change happen through real people inside and outside companies, without ever losing sight of the big picture and the ultimate goal - making business a force for good.

New Angles began the B Corp Impact Assessment because we'd been following the B Corp movement in the US for several years and thought it was time to take an active role in bringing it to Europe. We want to change business for good, and so we found B Corp's mission a perfect match for ours: we definitely wanted to be part of this community and we were also aware that to do our job we need to walk the talk ourselves. Doing the Impact Assessment on our own company makes sure we keep that in mind!

The Change We Seek®

New Angles believes that reading an ethical balance sheet is as important a skill for a business leader as reading a financial P&L. The first change New Angles wants to see in the world is in leaders and in their ideas about what business is for; they want to see business leaders measure success not just in terms of EBITDA and return on capital but in terms of positive impacts on parameters that matter to the whole of society, to employees and personally to the leaders themselves.

The second change New Angles is working to bring about is in business models, inviting companies to move away from maximizing their own transactional gains at the expense of everyone else in the value chain, towards optimizing their impacts, financial, social and environmental, to make a positive contribution to living well within the limits of one planet.

And the third change sought by New Angles is about leadership itself: they want to help business executives move from individualist, competitive, winner-take-all values to a cooperative, respectful, enabling approach to leading others, creating space for partnerships and shared value.
