I get the sense that when it comes down to it, they are a group of no bull, get it done, hardliners, albeit their charming accents might suggest otherwise. Don’t be fooled.  Sustainability isn’t fluffy, and neither is a newly formed alliance of the world’s leading sustainability consultancies, Transition500. They call it radicalism.

Transition500 represents the collaboration of UK-based firm, Robertsbridge; US-based Future 500; Germany-based, Thema 1; Belgium-based, Conscience Consulting; and France, Spain and Italy-based, Transitions. They service 15 markets in Europe, North America and Asia and help multinational corporations in a variety of systemic, sustainability challenges.
