Screening Process

We believe in fostering positive change and creating meaningful impact through our work. Our Client Screening Program serves as a vital tool to ensure that our collaborations align with our core values and commitment to sustainability, social responsibility, and ethical practices. By carefully evaluating each potential project and client organisation, we strive to build partnerships that contribute to a better world, while upholding the highest standards of integrity and purpose-driven design.

“Screening is simple, really. All we're doing here is looking for alignment. Are we suited to work together? We know that designing solutions for the wrong projects doesn't help anyone. This is our way of ensuring that when we lean in, we do so together, in total alignment.”

Let's Review Together Screening - projects we want to work on.

For clients and projects that fall into a grey area, we conduct a thorough evaluation to determine if a partnership can drive positive change. The evaluation process includes:

Potential for Positive Impact: Assessing whether the client or project could contribute positively to our mission and the SDGs.

Willingness to Improve: Determining if the client is open to improving their practices to better align with sustainability and ethical standards.

Alignment with Mission: Evaluating how closely the project aligns with Reny’s mission and values.

Stakeholder Feedback: Seeking input from employees, partners, and community stakeholders to inform the decision.
