About EarthShift Global, a Sustainability Consulting Company

Sustainability is a simple concept — when you do business in a way that respects nature and cultural values, you reap environmental, social and economic benefits.

But when corporations, NGOs, and government agencies start applying the principles of sustainability, they almost always encounter unique challenges that can only be resolved with situation-specific analysis and assessment.

That’s why, since our founding in 2000 (formerly EarthShift), EarthShift Global has pursued a simple mission: to partner with our clients to shift to a more prosperous, sustainable world.

When you work with EarthShift Global, you get direct access to distinguished sustainability consulting experts who’ve won praise (and repeat business) from clients like GE, Dow Chemical, Hewlett-Packard, YFY Jupiter, and the US Department of State. In addition to developing our widely used software for life cycle assessment and packaging lifecycle evaluation, they’ve helped establish international standards and practices and trained many of the world’s leading sustainability consultants.

“Since our founding in 2000, EarthShift Global has pursued a simple mission:

There are Lots of Sustainability Companies Out There — 
What Sets EarthShift Global Apart?


EarthShift Global’s team helps top-level executives, front-line practitioners, academic researchers and policymakers worldwide achieve their sustainability goals and objectives by providing Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) software, consulting services, and training that de-mystifies the path to sustainability. Our proven approach emphasizes engagement, adaptability and credible, measurable results, as well as incorporating performance-enhancing sustainable thinking into everyday business decisions.

If you’re a CEO or CFO seeking to reduce vulnerabilities and develop sustainability policies that generate both pride and ROI, an environmental engineer conducting lifecycle evaluation, or a product developer implementing design for sustainability, we are with you at every step to help you succeed. We can help optimize everything from project conceptualization to winning buy-in across your organization.

EarthShift Global is committed to business practices that promote better relationships with the world and its natural resources, in a socially equitable and economically sound way. Our organizational culture prioritizes integrity and honesty, and we respect and value clear thinking, new ideas, and data-driven solutions, wherever they may come from. We provide equal opportunity in employment and collaboration, and prohibit discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, creed, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, ancestry, age, veteran status, disability unrelated to job requirements, genetic information, military service, or other protected status.

Today, our Sustainability Partners Network unites a diverse range of resources that can also be engaged on behalf of our clients – and through our leadership positions in many LCA governing organizations, we’re helping make LCA increasingly relevant to current and future environmental challenges.


What Does This Look Like in Practice?

Our business model is built around our ability to engage in a variety of ways, applying sustainability consulting expertise, proven training techniques, and innovative Life Cycle Assessment software on an as-needed, where-needed basis. This ensures both economy and effectiveness in a wide range of situations.

Because we understand sustainability theory AND practice and have worked in such a diverse range of settings, we can strategize from a high level, or dig into a product-specific assessment with equal effectiveness.


Examples of our Work and Accomplishments

Bottom line — EarthShift Global delivers credible sustainability programs, large and small, which provide our clients with:

  • Measurable value creation
  • Innovative products and processes
  • New market opportunities
  • Measurement and benchmarking on the environment, society and profitability

How About Implementation of Sustainability Initiatives?


We’re proud that our LCA and SROI software, training programs and consulting services are all designed to help our clients build far-reaching capabilities of their own, leveraging solid data to reach reliable conclusions. We take great satisfaction in helping sustainability professionals get better at developing research, analyses and recommendations that can withstand the most intense scrutiny.

This is essential for winning the trust and participation of internal and external stakeholders, cultivating sustainability-oriented thinking across your organization, and influencing and optimizing your supply chain.

At the same time, the rigorously data-driven EarthShift Global approach ensures that your environmental sustainability marketing efforts are supported by credible science. You can build your brand with confidence, and compete effectively with rivals with no accusations of “greenwashing,” optimizing the return on your sustainability investments.

Effective implementation is a central value for EarthShift Global, because we want to help organizations establish better relationships with the world and its natural resources. We’re resolutely practical, but we’re also motivated by our own personal values and aspirations, because in this particular area self-interest, business interests, and societal interests quickly become indistinguishable.
