About the Embedding Project

The Embedding Project is a global public-benefit research project that helps companies embed social and environmental factors across their operations and decision-making. Support from our partner companies, partner research institutions, funders, and technology partners make this work possible.

The Principles that Guide Us

We are committed to creating public value

  • We identify, curate, and develop practical tools for corporate sustainability change agents that we license as Creative Commons so that they can be shared and used by all.

We ground our work in strong social science research

  • We work with some of the world’s top researchers in business sustainability to develop cutting edge frameworks and tools.

Collaboration underpins all that we do

  • We support a growing community of thoughtful practitioners and practical researchers by convening safe spaces where they can interact and learn from each other.

We are curious, inquisitive, and responsive

  • As a community, we are committed to co-creation, rapid prototyping, iteration, and refinement.

We support companies on their sustainability journeys

  • We facilitate structured, reflective processes, asking challenging questions and providing the tools they need to move forward.
