Sustainability and Health Initiative for NetPositive Enterprise (SHINE)

We cannot solve the greatest challenges to health by working in isolation. That is why our Sustainability and Health Initiative for NetPositive Enterprise (SHINE) helps corporations across all sectors measure and accelerate the ways in which they help the world become a healthier, more sustainable place. We set a bold vision for companies to factor their impact on our health into all business decisions, and act in ways that will protect human health and the environment.

SHINE connects business leadership with pioneering research to advance NetPositive sustainability and employee well-being in business. We combine academic research with powerful tools to guide corporate responsibility, sustainability, and health and well-being practices across the globe.
