For 3 decades, Utopies has been “opening new paths” for sustainability in business, by raising awareness of corporate leaders, fostering sustainable practices and promoting positive impact strategies.

About Utopies

Created by Élisabeth Laville in 1993, UTOPIES is the first independent sustainability think-tank and consultancy in France – and one of the very first in the world. With more than eighty consultants, UTOPIES’ mission is to open up new paths for corporate sustainability – by fostering the integration of social and environmental issues into companies’ purpose, innovation and business strategy. We are also renowned for our work on “positive brands©” and sustainable innovation, as well as our expertise in climate, biodiversity and socio-economic impact studies and strategies.

UTOPIES is committed to walk its talk: we were ranked #1 in the 2019 Great Place to Work French list (#3 in 2020), and were the first French company to be certified as a B Corp, as early as 2014 (our third certification occurred in 2020, with a score of 122/200).

Utopies was also in charge of developing the B Corp movement in France for 5 years, till 2019.

Historically based in Paris, UTOPIES also has teams in Bordeaux, Troyes and Grenoble, as well as in Sao Paulo and Morocco.
