Sustainability Integration Program

Peer Advisory Group


The Sustainability Integration Program is a network for professionals working to advance sustainability through services, products or organizational design in business, philanthropies, non-profits, municipalities, or other organization contexts.


This program is available to Executives, Sustainability Directors, Business Owners and Entrepreneurs in organizations with shared core values, seeking reliable and actionable advice from a trusted community of results driven leaders.  Through peer group discussions participants gain perspectives and share expertise with others who have faced similar challenges and broaden their exposure across a range of sustainability issues.


Applications to join the cohort-learning group in February of 2019 must be received no later than January 15.  Focus group is limited to 12 participants from a variety of diverse organizations.  Additional applications will be reviewed as space becomes available in the program.  Request an application.


Group members learn how to improve organizational performance and reach organizational goals to achieve their vision, with support from high caliber business leaders, subject matter experts and experienced conveners and facilitators.



“This program provides thoughtful discussion to challenge your thinking to become a more effective leader and decision maker while being held accountable by yourself and group members in a trusting environment.”

Program Facilitation – Guided by Experience


The professional facilitation of peer roundtables, workshops and individual coaching results in candid discussion and practical advice.  The confidential setting and third-party perspective allows for a true exchange of ideas and observations that leaders need to hear.


The Sustainability Integration Program will provide you with an experienced group of advisors and a seasoned facilitator – who can offer you advice, feedback, and critical thinking around the challenges you all share in common.


Each session is facilitated by Edward Quevedo, Director of Regenerative Design, Read Ed’s Full Bio.
