    We are revisiting our 2013 Sustainability Practitioner Research to understand how companies are incorporating planetary and social boundaries into their company strategy and thinking. For further details of this research, and how to get involved...

  • Who we are

    Founded in 1998, our name comes from the 1992 Rio Conference on Sustainable Development and reflects our founding vision to help people understand and change their behaviour to enable a more sustainable world.


    We believe that to succeed in today's business environment, you have to understand, articulate, measure and manage the value you create for society and the environment, as well as for shareholders.


    Our Responsible Business models demonstrate the transformative potential of integrating people and planet into your business strategy.

  • Who we work with

    Article 13 has the privilege of supporting internal teams in an array of industries, from the public, private and third sector. We help senior teams identify, address and embed the issues that matter most to their business and their stakeholders into commercial strategies and corporate culture.

  • What our clients say about us...

    "Excellent as both a stakeholder outreach exercise and also in linking sustainability with the commercial reality we operate in. I am so much more comfortable with what we have done in last 3 months versus last year. In particular, having the right people in the room. Stakeholder input was fantastic.”

    Director of Group Sustainability, Packaging Manufacturer

    What our clients say about us...

    "Article 13 often serves as my second brain [...] very good value in establishing a strategy and future direction."
