Help companies reduce their environmental impact.

In an era where global commerce has reached unprecedented levels, the importance of the sustainability of our product purchase decisions cannot be overstated. Every purchase we make leaves a footprint on our environment.

We are dedicated to enabling companies to reduce their impact on the environment. Our technical experts help companies take realistic, immediate steps that tangibly improve the environment while making business sense. Sustainable Design Pledge provides all services completely free of charge thanks to generous donors and the passionate experts who volunteer their time.

We also work to educate consumers so they can reward companies that strive to reduce their impact on the environment. We have found that companies are willing to become more environmentally friendly if even a small percentage of potential customers make buying decisions based on environmental impact. Through a combination of helping businesses understand (1) what steps they can take immediately to improve the environment and (2) how taking these steps can help their business grow, we are speeding the transition to a more sustainable future.

In essence, Sustainable Design Pledge is working to ensure our consumer choices reflect our collective commitment to a healthier planet. By uniting businesses, consumers, and environmental experts, we are creating a future where product design is not just about form and function but is also a testament to our dedication to environmental sustainability.
