Sustainability in the U.S. begins with The Natural Step Network.
The foundation for many sustainability programs in the United States and around the world is The Natural Step Framework. Why? Because the science-based process has been tested and proven by forward thinking organizations for nearly two decades. See Solutions for Business, Solutions for Communities, Case Studies.
The Natural Step is present in the USA and elsewhere through its network of consultants and associates. For more information, please contact Isabella Oriani, director of The Natural Step International, our global secretariat (isabella.oriani(at)thenaturalstep.org).

Dr. Karl-Henrik Robèrt, Founder of The Natural Step, joined a group of the world’s leading scientists and experts in sustainable development today in calling for urgent changes to policies and institutions to enable humanity to tackle environmental crises and improve human wellbeing.
The group – all past winners of the Blue Planet Prize – have gathered in London to finalise a paper that will be launched at the UN Environment Programme’s Governing Council meeting in Nairobi on 20-22 February.
The paper will emphasise transformational solutions to key environment and development challenges. It highlights the policies, technologies and behaviour changes required to protect the local, regional and global environment, stimulate the economy and enhance the livelihoods of the poor.
The paper, Environmental and Development Challenges: The imperative to act comes ahead of the Rio+20 conference in Brazil in June, which marks the 20th anniversary of the historic UN Conference on Environment and Development (Rio Earth Summit).
