Why Manuia?

There are more factors at play now. Strategy, business execution, and financial soundness are all part
of the equation for a company performance aligned with the environment and communities. This age’s
mission is to bring about a triple impact.


Creating prosperity in the broadest sense of the word is the new way. Collaboration. Where business
and purpose are intertwined. Where not all the answers come from within a company.

CREDO

When we embarked upon this journey at the beginning of 2009 in the TriCiclos Foundation, it seemed like a pipe dream to imagine that companies would grow with this triple result as a central focus. So, we used ourselves as an experiment. Our progress was remarkable, as we helped to redefine the logic of prosperity itself.
When we look at nature, we feel we are part of the evolution of species. Just like other living things, we have been growing, mutating, transforming, and expanding our capacities, all while our surroundings have been changing as well.

The corporate sector is very different now than what it used to be at the dawn of this century. There are increased  requirements, the level of awareness has grown, and expectations are increasingly
aligned with this concept of triple result. Sustainability currently plays a fundamental role in aspects of business competitiveness. We have seen how our clients have improved, and we have often been the agents of change behind these transformations. Moreover, our own evolution is also the result of the
change we have encouraged within. Over these last twelve years, we have had the privilege of being
at the forefront in creating sustainable trends for the corporate world. This has allowed us to keep pace with the global trend in circular economy through privileged occasions with the World Economic Forum, together with William McDonough, the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, PACE, Scale360, UNIDO
and many others.

In turn, we also participated actively in the evolution of the global plastic industry as the lone Latin American organization in The New Plastics Economy initiative. We then brought the Plastics Pact to Chile as the third country in the world to formalize this network. We were also present in the globalization of B Corporations and in the creation of Sistema B, and we were the first B Corp outside of North America. We also participated in various developments and initiatives of the B Economy. For example, we had an active role in the creation of SDG Action Manager as a concrete way of linking the business sector to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) agenda. In recent years we have had an active role in the global climate change agenda as we help to incorporate a circular economy with climate action, ESG criteria, and achieving the SDGs.

The “descent with modification” theory states that beings learn from their environment, and their body is able to specialize and mutate into a new, more capable being. TriCiclos epitomized this theory, not only as pioneers in the development of circular economy with the waste reception project, but also in the ongoing development of new capabilities, such as the “Re” app, a project and alliance with Mercado Circular, Retorna, and many more. Thanks to these tools, now we are better prepared to be able to contribute in a more concrete way to the applied circular economy. And this was the origin of Manuia, a Rapa Nui term for “prosperity.”

OUR WAY OF ENVISIONING THE WORLD

The private sector has an irreplaceable and urgent role through its own activities in overcoming the most pressing challenges being faced by humankind. Businesses will not be successful without contributing to the success of the Planet. They are inextricably intertwined.
Long-term success and competitiveness is increasingly more dependent on ESG criteria. The new equation for profitability incorporates these variables, and the impact of this goes beyond just reputation. A business strategy that does not include these variables will simply not be enough. And an unaligned execution will not be able to add all short- and long-term value.

VALUE PROPOSITION

Here at Manuia, we consult companies of all different sizes, sectors, and regions, to connect with and anticipate changes that are occurring throughout the world. This allows them to recognize these. processes in time, understand them, and adapt to them by reducing exposure to risk and exploring the opportunities these changes can offer. We know at Manuia that in order to achieve this, companies need to reflect on these changes at every level, integrate them into their way of perceiving their surroundings, and afford them the proper importance they deserve. This is where we believe the greatest challenges lie. Just like with living beings, we know that sustainability is a culture, and when it is foreign to you, you need someone native to translate for you, to show you and teach you.

Like all cultures, companies need experts and supporting methodologies to be able to learn, to be able to detect which areas are essential for them, to envision changes, to solidify them in metrics, implement them, and turn them into opportunities.

Manuia team is comprised of these very professionals who are capable of supporting you in thisprocess. The team is constantly thinking about instilling these ideas at the very top of the organization, with the aim that the result will be reflected all the way down, from the relationship with suppliers to the added value for clients and stakeholders.
Manuia uses both its own and external methodologies to provide an exhaustive client assistance experience. In so doing, we are creating a new class of strategic consulting services.
