We work with businesses large and small to identify and enhance environmental performance objectives, developing corporate environmental policies, internal environmental management systems and protocols for measuring and reporting annual performance.

 

We also work with organizations to facilitate change in public policy at the local, regional, federal and international level. We lobby for the environment and our clients, to bring a higher level of accountability to government to better preserve and protect our natural environment.

MARKET SOLUTIONS

 

Eco-innovations addresses environmental challenges with market-based solutions that prompt informed consumer action. There is exceptional value in informed consumer demand as a mechanism for change, one that can transform markets and improve environmental and social conditions with a speed unlike any other process.  Eco-innovations facilitates this change with market solutions developed in partnership with the Automotive Science Group and Ecorate.com.

 

Automotive Science Group and Ecorate.com were both created to support Eco-innovations' mission by enhancing product and technology comparison capabilities to better serve the environment through informed consumer choice. These solutions help consumers make informed decisions that are not only in their best economic interest, but also in the best interest of the environment in which they live and the global community of which we are all an equal part.

THE GROUP

COLBY SELF

Managing Director

Colby brings to the Group expertise in environmental and social policy development. His work in Brussels to advance environmental policy initiatives at the EU, has given him great insight into the European political process and the role progressive government plays in transforming industry. On the opposite end of the spectrum, his work in Washington to advance U.S. environmental policy initiatives and enforcement capabilities has shed light on the role of progressive industry to move ahead of government when government fails to provide adequate protections. Having served NGOs, UN bodies, government agencies and private industry in global efforts to advance environmental initiatives over the past 10 years, he places great value on public-private collaboration as a mechanism for change.

 

Colby has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Public Policy, Planning and Development from the University of Southern California. He was a visiting scholar at Oxford University and a select member of the Cambridge University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Cambridge-MIT Institute Enterprisers.

POLICY SOLUTIONS

 

We work in diverse arenas, developing environmental policy solutions for clients ranging from product manufacturers and managing corporations to non-governmental organizations (NGOs), government agencies and intergovernmental panels alike.

 

Our approach is founded on the principles of ecological economics. This transdisciplinary field examines the relationship between ecological and economic systems, realizing that sustained economic activity is fully reliant on a resilient ecological system to provide natural, social and human capital. Ensuring that economic activity does not undermine the resource capacity of our natural environment requires multi-stakeholder engagement to ensure costs are not externalized (otherwise not accounted for) to the environment, to the labor force and to their communities.
