Who We Are

SHIFT is a cross-sector collaboration led by the Sustainability Initiative at MIT Sloan and Valutus. Our growing list of collaborators includes Biogen, CSRHub, MIT Press, and MIT Sloan Management Review.

Our Mission

Make it easier for leaders at all stages of development to “hardwire” sustainability into their organizations.

Current News

Most recently, we have been collaborating closely with the WBCSD, and engaging with the Natural Capital Coalition and the Social & Human Capital Coalition, to transfer the information from their respective toolkits to SHIFT. Our common goal is to help reduce the number of platforms, increase user friendliness, and drive convergence and ultimately comparability.
