Our vision is a sustainable society – one in which individuals, communities, businesses and institutions thrive within nature’s limits.
Our mission is to accelerate the transition to a sustainable society.
We are part of a global network of non-profit organizations that share the same brand, core identity and purpose and that has been at the forefront of sustainable development internationally for more than twenty years. The science-based framework that we employ (called the Framework for Strategic Sustainable Development – FSSD) has been used successfully in hundreds of forward-thinking organizationsaround the world.
The Natural Step has received a number of awards over the years including: Mikhail Gorbachev’s Green Cross Millennium Award in 1999 and The Blue Planet Award (considered the “Nobel Prize of the Environment”) in 2000. The Natural Step’s founder, Dr. Karl-Henrik Robèrt, has been honoured with numerous international distinctions including the first Laureate Medal for Social Responsibility issued in 2005 by the Global Centre for Leadership and Business Ethics and, in 2009, as an Ashoka Fellow and Globalizer.
