GlobeScan’s guiding purpose is to help organizations redefine what it means to be in business so that they can create more enduring value for themselves, their stakeholders and society. Whether you’re a global enterprise, a leading NGO or a multilateral organization, we work as trusted partners to help enhance our clients’ sustainability strategy & vision, integration & performance, and engagement & communications to accelerate their ascent toward recognized leadership within their stakeholder ecosystems.

Whether it’s the beginning of the journey, or an update to ongoing strategy, GlobeScan is uniquely placed to support our clients’ commitment to doing well by doing good.

Track Record

For more than 25 years, GlobeScan has been the global intelligence and engagement partner of choice for leading organizations in sustainability as well as those who know they need to get there. From the best-performing companies on the world’s most-trusted index listings and ranking systems, to change agents like WBCSD, BSR and Sustainable Brands, through the UN system and the world’s development banks, to inspiring foundations and the most effective NGOs they support, GlobeScan has established unparalleled credentials in research and advisory services on sustainability.

GlobeScan’s roots are anchored in sustainability. Our ongoing Radar public opinion research and our GlobeScan/SustainAbility Surveys of expert practitioners have provided invaluable context for own work and that of others for decades.

Today, for one of our clients, sustainability means connecting the world’s markets to enable trade where limited access had previously capped development. To another, it means leaving a remote community in better shape than before the company had arrived. To yet another, it means empowering consumers globally to make purchase decisions that improve well-being for themselves, their workers and the environment. To others, it means developing disruptive new business models that redefine entire sectors, absorb externalities and create competitive advantage.  

All of our clients, however, believe that sustainability is vital to their reputations and their corporate purpose. They know that sustainability leadership drives innovation, motivates teams, attracts talent, mitigates risks, increases shareholder value, strengthens customer loyalty and builds trust.

In today’s fragile, chaotic and uncertain business environment under increasing carbon constraints and decreasing natural capital, GlobeScan is committed to helping our clients lead the transformation that in turn will catalyze a more resilient society and the marketplace it supports, creating durable value for all.

Fundamentally, sustainability is about innovation and transformation. To help enable the changes that science tells us that society needs now, we have developed and refined a suite of services for our clients.

"To us, sustainability is more than an aspiration. It’s a vitally indispensable outcome. For me, this is an energizing space to work in. While the challenges are profound, working with clients to help achieve the future we collectively need rewards us all. It’s not a coincidence that our best clients have histories spanning well over a century. We’ve demonstrated that sustainability cannot be confined within an organizational silo. It needs to saturate everything that an organization does. We work in partnership with our clients to help them get there."
