The Natural Step was founded in Sweden in 1989 as the world's first sustainability advisory organization. We now have presences in 14 countries around the world and Swedish King Karl XVI Gustav has been our Patron from the very beginning. The Natural Step has worked with thousands of corporations, municipalities and academic institutions and has shown that moving strategically toward sustainability leads to new opportunities, reduced costs, and radically better ecological and social impacts.
We research the science of sustainability and link it to real-world applications. We create dialogues about the opportunities and challenges in building a sustainable future. We are accelerating innovation towards Sustainability.
Our long-term goal is to have a systemic approach to sustainability embedded into the heart of all social and business ecosystems as a set of design principles for crafting innovation, success and a vibrant future in which human society thrives within nature's limits.
