The Sustainability and Health Initiative for NetPositive Enterprise (SHINE) at the Center for Health and the Global Environment (CHGE) enables corporate leaders to ensure—and document—that the health of people and the planet is better off because of their actions.

SHINE emphasizes the measurement of “handprints,” the beneficial impacts that result from company practices, including restoring the natural world, reducing harmful impacts on the environment and communities, and bettering the health and well-being of people.  “Handprints” apply to both operational practices and the ripple effects of a company’s products, services, and public policy influence. 

SHINE brings together leading corporations intent on paving a new path in sustainability that will lead to restoring the health of people and the planet. Working with each other and with Harvard faculty and affiliates, members of SHINE join together to refine the metrics and methods for achieving net-positive sustainability, while also exploring the organizational challenges and the business opportunities for successfully designing, adopting and implementing a net-positive sustainability strategy.
