Sustainable Development

With sustainability now a top priority in today’s societies and for many organisations, STBY has been involved in many projects devoted to exploring ways in which to respect and honour the principles of social, economic, and ecological sustainability.

Over the years we have worked on tackling these challenges from a variety of perspectives including food sustainability, the circular economy, water management, plastic waste reduction, agriculture and climate adaptation, to name a few.

As these issues are often broad and deeply intertwined, we have developed close collaborations with public institutions, non-profits, and universities with aligned values. Together with these partners, we unpack the complexity of these problems and highlight the rich, human stories that inspire much-needed behavioural, political and systemic change to normalise sustainable development.
