This is our story.

Experience goes a long way

Since 1999, we’ve been leaders in corporate social responsibility and environmental issues—we know the landscape, the players and what works, boasting an Advisory Board comprised of some of Canada’s leading thinkers and motivators on urban and environmental issues.

We also produce our annual Green Living Show—the largest green consumer show in Canada—putting us face-to-face with conscientious consumers and keeping us involved and in tune with every important social, health and environmental move.

Through these connections, we’re able to offer our clients exceptional insight and many opportunities to partner with leaders in sustainability.
