What does sustainability mean to your organisation? At Wazoku the tools and processes we recommend to our customers when generating ideas or solving business challenges are the same we adopt internally. Balbu, is what we’ve branded our own idea management platform instance in our organisation. We use Balbu to run internal competitions, test and develop product features and improve operational and business processes to name a few.

Connect, is our customer co-creation community. We use this instance of our product as a forum dedicated to our customers and partners. We discuss best practices, share use cases, adopt new product functionality – and – most importantly, share valuable knowledge between one another.

Both Balbu and Connect help our business and product stay relevant and continuously improve, while establishing a feedback loop from our employees and customers. Solving global challenges by involving the right people, in the right process, at the right time

The Wazoku Save the World campaign

The Wazoku Save the World campaign aims to help businesses look internally at ways they can contribute towards the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

We know that by crowdsourcing ideas within a business’ ecosystem and engaging different minds, internal and external to an organisation, it can bring about great change. Therefore, we’re challenging organisations to look at business opportunities that align with the SDGs. In this way, we can take on this global macro challenge at a micro level.

How have we done it?

How is Wazoku supporting the SDGs?

Firstly, we looked internally and found several ways to operate more sustainably as an organisation. Making incremental changes to fundamental processes can increase efficiency and productivity of employees as well as build culture and growth.

We challenge you

Get involved in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainability and crowdsource new ideas to help the world achieve our Global Sustainable Development Goals.

How is your organisation committing to a more sustainable future? Think about asking your employees, customers and wider network for new ideas on how to be more sustainable.
