A thriving human society within nature’s limits is possible. The Natural Step’s theory of change links individual awareness and agency, organizational strategy and practice, and systems-level collaboration.

The foundation for many innovative sustainability programs around the world is anchored in The Natural Step Framework for Strategic Sustainable Development. Our science-based process has been tested and proven effective by hundreds of forward-thinking organizations over the past two decades.

Our programs focus on two primary intended impact areas we believe are crucial to accelerating the transition to a sustainable society and our unique suite of services translate the fundamentals of sustainability into practical steps for businesses, communities, and other organizations.

IMPACT! – It’s about doing more good

The article "IMPACT! – It’s about doing more good," is written by Alyssa Kostello, alumni of the IMPACT! Sustainability Champions Training program, and is adapted from her blog originally published on alyssakostello.wordpress.com.


Back in May I was at the IMPACT! Youth Conference for Sustainability Leadership where I spent four days with 175 other youth from across Canada. You may be wondering “What is this conference you speak of and what’s it all about?”
