Enabling sustainable organisations to thrive
thinkstep (aka PE International) is the leader in sustainability performance management, helping 2,500 companies – including 40 per cent of the Fortune 500 – create business value through sustainability.
We believe that the next 10 years will be the breakthrough decade for global sustainability agendas. People and institutions demand it, scientific knowledge confirms it, and modern technology enables it.
But true sustainability requires a new approach — one grounded in data, scaled up through technology, and tailored with services — to deliver real, long-term results.
...have realized that driving economic performance and driving sustainability go along.
We believe that a corporate sustainability strategy creates surplus and also a change of perspective: “Circular” instead of take-make-waste is the future leader’s business model.
Software turns complexity into transparency.
With 20 years of market experience we know that environmental, social, and compliance matters are complex but controllable. What you are looking for is an overview. thinkstep software and services enhance data quality, save processing time and improve reporting and decision-making.
The more you know the better your decisions.
Sustainability is a complex business challenge. Ideology or good intentions alone won’t solve it, instead, sound analysis and engaged action will. Confidence in our mission starts with true knowledge. This inspires us to expand our insights continuously because the more we know, the smarter our actions.
This belief is captured in our logo in a lively way. The colors of our logo change constantly expressing “the ever-evolving knowledge”.

"We enable companies worldwide to recalibrate their strategies and operations for long-term sustainability success with unrivalled data, technology and services." The thinkstep mission, 2014.
Sustainability is the pivot point for success.
There’s no such thing as ‘business as usual’ in our era of climate change, resource scarcity, and population growth. Today’s complex global value chains carry substantial risks and opportunities for environmental impact. That’s why governments, investors, customers and communities demand increased transparency and proactive, credible action from companies.
We believe that the next 10 years will be the breakthrough decade for global sustainability agendas.

Our engagement and community work:
In 1991, a select few were thinking about sustainability. thinkstep was one of them. Our awareness, expertise, methods, and software have since grown into mature sustainability solutions.
Sustainability is an attitude that we live every day. For instance, thinkstep has been carbon-neutral since 2006. Family-friendly policies and social responsibility towards employees and business partners are central pillars of our corporate strategy.
thinkstep sees itself as a think tank; a link connecting industry and research. The insights we gain flow into our consulting and software and are an eyeopener. Apart from our business activities, we are engaged in various projects and activities and support people all over the world.

thinkstep believes that all individuals and all organisations in New Zealand, and worldwide, need to be more sustainable. As a group, thinkstep’s mission is to be recognised by customers and employees for the organisation’s ability to support their sustainability journey. As such we truly believe that we are walking the talk.
