About Natural Interest

Natural Interest was founded in 2005 as one of Finland’s pioneering companies in CO2 and ecological footprinting. Through the years we supplied Finnish companies with useful tools and training to manage their sustainability impact. In 2014 we became the Finnish office of The Natural Step.

About The Natural Step

The Natural Step has been a world leader in strategic sustainable development for over 25 years. We are a not-for-profit organization dedicated to education, advisory work, system change initiatives, innovation and research in sustainable development.

Since 1989, we have worked with thousands of corporations, municipalities, academic institutions and non-profit organizations that have proven that moving strategically toward sustainability leads to new opportunities, reduced costs and dramatically reduced ecological and social impacts. We have vast and varied experience helping companies and municipalities understand and make meaningful progress toward sustainability. The Natural Step has offices, associates or strategic partners in 12 countries.
