Our mission is to support cultural transformation toward an equitable and sustainable world through groundbreaking tools, programs and campaigns that cause systemic change.

Our guiding principles are:

  • All life is sacred
  • Plan for the long future
  • Have integrity in all actions
  • Ensure equity in all solutions
  • Be the change we want to see

It is essential for our agency to embody the principles we promote, thus we operate with a non-hierarchical equitable organizational structure. We organize teams on a project-by-project basis, with rotating leads who act as project manager, seeing a project from inception to completion. Thanks to our fluid and flexible structure, we have been able to work on wide range of project scales ranging from $5 thousand to $5 million. We are highly selective with our work and only work on projects that align with our mission and principles.

Green Ideas offers consulting services in the following areas:

  • Analysis
  • Development

Working with collaborators and specialists, each phase is handled under a separate contract so that our clients can select the combination of services that meet their needs. To learn more, read about our Approach
