Advisory Services

The Natural Step has a long track record of working with organizations to help them become sustainability leaders. Our effort to support the emergence of role model organizations that can inspire others is a key part of our mission.

In Canada, our unique suite of advisory, coaching, training, and process facilitation services is delivered by a national network of Associates – talented and experienced professionals who translate the fundamentals of sustainability into practical steps businesses and communities can take to achieve lasting change.

Our Associates help their clients make significant progress by integrating sustainability principles into core strategies, decisions, and operations – building shared value through the strength of their expertise, tools, and networks.

The Natural Step’s advisory services are often blended with programs to build sustainability literacy and enable collaboration for systemic change. Our Associates work closely to support sustainability champions inside organizations.

Our approach is fun, dynamic, engaging, interactive, and—above all— clients get results.

Over the years, The Natural Step has worked with thousands of people in hundreds of organizations—from small municipalities to Fortune 500 companies. For a complete list of current and past clients of The Natural Step Canada, please visit Our Clients.
