The Sustainability and Health Initiative for NetPositive Enterprise (SHINE) is the leading network connecting business leadership with pioneering research to advance sustainability and well-being.

SHINE creates a research agenda and works with companies to define and develop the evidence for scalable solutions to healthy and sustainable change for business.

We translate our research into powerful tools and methods that can guide and unite an organization's corporate responsibility, sustainability and well-being practices so that companies can thrive in the ever changing economic, environmental and social landscape.
