The Sustainability Consortium (TSC) is a global non-profit organization transforming the consumer goods industry to deliver more sustainable consumer products. We work to enable a world where people can lead fulfilled lives in a way that decouples their impacts on people and the planet. Our members and partners include manufacturers, retailers, suppliers, service providers, NGOs, civil society organizations, governmental agencies and academics. TSC convenes our diverse stakeholders to work collaboratively to build science-based decision tools and solutions that address sustainability issues that are materially important throughout a product’s supply chain and lifecycle. TSC also offers a portfolio of services to help drive effective improvement and implementation.
We envision a world in the near future where we can experience the benefits of consumer products without causing harm to people or going beyond the environmental limits of our planet.
To use the best sustainability science to help companies make the everyday products we use better and more sustainable.
TSC is committed to bold, innovative, and measurable change that is changing how we think about sustainable consumer products:
We translate the best sustainability science into business and consumer tools for action. We cite over 4,200 peer-reviewed studies in our work.
We engage more than 600 decision makers and thought leaders across 230 organizations annually to create and implement our tools with more than a dozen retailers.
We work towards making all consumer goods sustainable through scalable solutions
We want to use TSC’s hotspots and work on them with our suppliers one by one, bring them to life in the product and tell the customer, providing access at a low price to more sustainable product.
