CSO Global Service Models

At CSO Global, we offer flexible service business models that cater to diverse client needs and preferences. Our range of business models ensures that organizations can choose the approach that aligns best with their goals and resources. Our service business models include:

Project Based

Where the client pays for specific sustainability projects or initiatives. This model is well-suited for clients that have a one-time or short-term need for CSO services

Performance Based

Where the client pays based on the outcomes or results achieved by the CSO services. This model aligns the interests of the company and the client and can help to ensure that the CSO services are delivering value to the client

Co-Sourcing Based

Where they work alongside the client’s in-house sustainability team to provide additional expertise, experience, and resources. This model can be beneficial for clients who have an in-house sustainability team but need additional support to achieve their sustainability goal

Subscription Based

Where the client pays for access to a suite of sustainability tools, resources, and services. This model can be beneficial for clients who are looking for a more self-service approach to sustainability and ESG

Retainer Based

Where the client pays a fixed fee for a set period of time, typically on a monthly or annual basis. This model allows the client to have ongoing access to CSO services as needed

CSO as a Service : Advantages to Clients


Outsourcing CSO services can be more cost-effective than hiring an in-house CSO, as the client will not have to pay for the CSO’s salary, benefits, and other associated costs


Outsourcing allows clients to adjust the level of service they receive based on their current needs, rather than being locked into a long-term commitment with an in-house CSO

Access to specialized expertise

An outsourced CSO can bring a level of specialized expertise and experience that may not be available in-house.

Increased scalability

An outsourced CSO can help the client to scale their sustainability efforts as their business grows or as regulations change

Objective view of the company

An outsourced CSO may provide an independent perspective on sustainability issues, which can help the client to identify and address potential risks and opportunities

Independent perspective

An outsourced CSO can offer an unbiased and objective view of the company’s sustainability performance, which can help the company to improve its performance and reputation
