We enable leaders and their organizations to engage in a human, societal and environmental transformation in order to reconcile purpose, impact and performance.

As leaders we know that a successful transition is not a revolution. It relies on existing resources, taking into account the financial and operational situation of the company. It underlies the need to reconcile, re-orient and redefine new paradigms with determination and subtlety. Only then do we create the adhesion and reinforce the cohesion within the company. The enthusiasm and the commitment of the employees is an essential success factor.

So that companies have a positive and sustainable impact to the world.

For tomorrow, a business model centered and organized, technically and culturally on:

People and planet

The search for profit
at the expense of meaning

The search for purpose with profit as a consequence

Purpose becomes a structural commitment

meaneo inspires and enables leaders and their organizations to engage in human, societal and environmental transformation to reconcile purpose, impact and performance.

To anchor this transformation in the heart of the operations and life of the company, we work on three structural pillars :

  • Confirmation of the sincere commitment of the leaders and their teams
  • Alignment of governance and strategy with the new ambition and purpose
  • Integration of all stakeholders in this journey

meaneo is a benefit corporation according to French law and B Corp pending. Our purpose is to ‘contribute to a world where companies have a positive and sustainable impact on people, society and the environment’.

Our mission carries following objectives :

  • Over 50% of our customers have to observe a positive impact created by their companies on one of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations
  • 10% of our net income will be used to finance companies, associations or NGOs that contribute to a positive impact
  • 5% of the working time of our Impact Enablers is dedicated pro-bono to entrepreneurs, non-profit associations and NGOs who are developing a project or activity that has a positive impact on the world
Courage

At meaneo we demonstrate courage by creating a new and demanding model, against the opportunistic approaches. We go out of our comfort zones driven by finance considerations, to place profit as a consequence and not a primary goal. For the customers, the very same courage is displayed when they decide to reorient all or parts of their companies’ initiatives towards contributing to a better world.

Perseverance

Perseverance transforms a brave act into long term energy. Perseverance needs to be associated with courage so that the whole engaged community achieves its objectives.

Humanity

Globalization and the resulting deregulation, successive crises, digitalization of society distancing humanity from itself. Regaining awareness and taking care of our own humanity and its surroundings is a value that may seem obvious. At meaneo, this value functions as a shared watchword between the company, employees and customers.

Presidence

At meaneo, the exercice of power is not an end in itself, but a means to serve the mission of the company. Thus, the president is appointed by the assembly of shareholders for only two years.

Engagement Committee

The Engagement Committee is an operational body whose main objective is to ensure the respect of the purpose and the mission of meaneo, before any answer is given to significant customer requests or to the launch of new missions.

Advisory Board

meaneo has established an advisory board made up of thought leaders. It will help to increase its impact in a co-constructive approach while sharing and confronting best practices, experiences and observations.
