Green Evolution helps individuals and organizations along the path to sustainability.

Put simply, sustainability is about meeting current needs in a way that doesn’t compromise the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Sustainability is about much more than the environment; it is about people and our ability to continue thriving on this planet.

Program Design, Implementation, and Evaluation Consulting

Green Evolution has worked passionately on the design, launch, implementation, and evaluation of dozens of demand side management (DSM) programs for utilities across North America. As distributed energy resources (DERs) such as distributed generation, demand response, energy storage, electric vehicles, and energy efficiency become increasingly integrated with the grid-level management of energy infrastructure, utilities will be in a position to administer programs to help ensure these services reach customers in as logical, coordinated, and effective ways as possible. Green Evolution can provide technical assistance and strategic consulting on all aspects of DER programs to maximize program performance and customer satisfaction.

Customer Experience Consulting

Green Evolution has deep experience and expertise building, managing, and improving utility customer experience initiatives and contact center / call center / customer service representative (CSR) teams. By providing effective training to CSRs and management staff on topics including customer experience, behavioral science, and relevant technical topics, Green Evolution can help drive demonstrable improvements in key areas like customer satisfaction and program participation rates. Green Evolution also consults with management staff on operational details including customer journey mapping, omnichannel communications strategies, data management, implementing the right key performance indicators (KPIs), technology tools, and team leadership to improve organizational outcomes and reduce turnover.

Community Based Social Marketing (CBSM)

If your Marketing, Education, and Outreach (ME&O) initiatives involve CBSM (such as canvassing, tabling, and workshops), Green Evolution can design and implement marketing services that deliver maximized and measurable results. Drawing upon deep experience and behavioral science research, Green Evolution works with clients to develop a marketing plan and scope of marketing tactics best-suited for the specific project and territory from a comprehensive list of options we have developed. We then execute effective marketing campaigns according to the marketing plan and industry best practices. Our data-driven approach emphasizes customer experience, identifies and removes barriers to participation, clearly communicates benefits to participation, and leverages opportunities to cross-promote multiple programs and maximize the impact of marketing budgets.

Part of what sets Green Evolution apart from other sustainability consulting companies is our attention to the residential sector. Every day, we are all faced with many choices that have a direct impact on our health, environment, and community. To make matters more confusing than they already are, we are bombarded with greenwashing, environmental marketing claims like “natural” and “eco-friendly” that sound nice but are technically meaningless.

After understanding your unique situation, goals, priorities, and budget, we serve as your trusted, expert partner to help you achieve your desired results. We work to maximize the positive outcomes on every project, including increasing quality of life, saving money, reducing environmental impacts, and reducing health risks.
