Europe Delivers is a business-led ecosystem that tackles planet-wide societal and environmental problems that are too big, too expensive, and too complex for any one organisation to tackle alone.
Run by Xynteo, the partnership is currently led by nine global companies - ABB, DB Schenker, ManpowerGroup, Mastercard, Scania, Shell, Tata Sons, Verizon, and Yara - and committed to using combined resources to pursue growth that creates value across generations, not quarters; that works with nature, not against it; and that benefits the many, not the few. The partners in the coalition believe that their competitiveness, and Europe’s, depends on it.
Other coalitions talk, but Europe Delivers has a history of action — with tangible results. In 2021, the partner companies in Europe Delivers developed nine cross-sector projects that focused on decarbonising heavy industries, building a financial-services safety net for gig workers, and more. The next phase of Europe Delivers using systems collaboration that enables its partner companies to deliver commercially impactful, inclusive, and sustainable growth.
FOCUS ON IMPACT AND VALUE CREATION
Our mission is to accelerate impact through innovative projects with a focus on real-world execution - meaning that our partners will collaborate on tangible projects across four critical areas we term, Impact Tracks. This approach lowers the costs and risks for partners as they build new business models that deliver growth at scale.
In 2022, our four Impact Tracks are:
- Talent and Human Prosperity
- Digitally Transformative Growth
- Decarbonisation of Strategic Sectors
- Sustainable and Resilient Value Chains
It is our hope that the programmes, projects and initatives that come from these Impact Tracks will move the needle towards a more sustainable, more inclusive, and more vibrant growth model for Europe.
Europe Delivers provides the support our partners need to gain commercial advantage in and beyond Europe — not through “out-of-the-box thinking, but “out-of-the-box doing”. Successful collaboration requires strong, committed leadership and Europe Delivers continues to build its community through the Executive Committee, senior leaders, policy roundtables and events.
Xynteo’s Systems Innovation Platform is being utilised to facilitate these engagements and projects, with the platform designed as a response to the complex, interconnected, and critical human challenges (find out more in our 2022 Plan). Using this innovative platform enables the integration of various motivations for participation, but creates unity around key challenges and leverages a shared desire to reinvent traditional growth models. This in turn is supported by our unique governance model where each Impact Track is backed through integrated workstreams consisting of:
- An Executive Committee led by C-Suite leaders from partner companies
- Xynteo’s core team and Managing Directors
- Partner company senior change makers, or Catalysts
The projects within the Impact Tracks are delivered in three phases: Firstly the building of foundations with multiple stakeholders and creating a shared vision that drives and informs innovation and change. Secondly, resourcing the innovation and incubation by mobilising change agents and piloting projects ahead of scale. And finally, scaling the innovations across horizontal and varied ecosystems towards systemic innovation and change.
