Business is a powerful catalyst for solving society’s greatest challenges

Reframing the role of companies in sustainability

The ways in which companies address sustainability today shape the future for business, societies, and ecosystems at large. Whether tackling grand challenges such as climate change, human rights violations, or disease outbreaks, companies have much to contribute to the sustainable world.

Yet, nearly every entrepreneur, business leader, and manager faces the challenge of addressing sustainability the right way—the way that deepens engagement with their core business, customers, teams, and within their natural environment.

This website offers research-based insights and ideas for business actors. Delving deeper than sustainability reporting, this site invites you to think sustainability in new ways that can readily be translated into action.

Dr. Sonja Lahtinen

I’m a sustainability strategist, postdoctoral researcher, and speaker on the role of companies in addressing some of the world's most serious evolving challenges.

In my work, I combine academic rigor with real-life business cases and explore ways for companies to address sustainability in the most meaningful way.

I built this website to share what I've discovered during my journey in the sustainable business world. I invite you to join me to explore some of the most fascinating questions concerning the future direction of companies, consumers, societies, and natural ecosystems.
