    Our mission is to turn this vision into reality so that sustainability delivers value for organisations.

Our point of difference is to combine corporate and product sustainability, underpinned by leading software solutions and data. We also undertake circular economy projects, materiality assessments, and support organisations to calculate and manage their carbon emissions.

    At thinkstep-anz we firmly believe in walking the talk. We have an approved science-based target and are a proud B Corp.

    We have more than 20 team members located in Auckland, Wellington, Hamilton, Sydney and Perth. thinkstep-anz is a certified B Corp with an approved Science Based Target.

    Unlocking the business potential of sustainability

    Sustainability is a complex business challenge with its own unique language. We are experts at translating the language of sustainability to unlock its true business potential.

    Our approach is to help our clients understand both the corporate impacts and life cycle impacts of their products and services, and to build strategies to reduce these.

    There is no such thing as ‘business as usual’ in our era of climate change, global pandemics, resource scarcity, and population growth. True sustainability requires a new approach — one grounded in data, scaled up through technology, and tailored with services — to deliver real, long-term results.

    We believe change is better achieved through collaboration and that is why we are long-time supporters of the Sustainable Business Network.
