The Natural Step works with businesses, local and central government and many other organisations to help them pioneer sustainable solutions. We work with our partners to integrate sustainability principles into their core strategies, decisions, operations - and their bottom line. We work closely with the people inside the organisation; people who are dedicated to sustainability and the creation of a better world.
By building capacity within organisations, companies come to understand how the current state of the world is impacting business systems, and how, in turn, business systems are impacting the state of the world. We provide businesses, councils and other organisations the tools to make the most of limited resources and move towards successful and sustainable futures.
Our work is primarily focused on business advice, education and awareness-raising. Some examples of our work include workshops for businesses and councils, keynote presentations at corporate annual general meetings, formal education through academic institutions, and the convention and education of networks.
Ultimately, we aim to shift an organisation's thinking away from the piecemeal management of immediate problems to the creation of a long term and strategic plan toward sustainability.
The Natural Step’s advisors are experienced in training, coaching and advising organisations. Over the years, the Natural Step has worked with thousands of people in hundreds of organisations - from small municipalities to Fortune 500 companies. While each presents a different challenge, together we are always able to create unique and effective solutions.
