What we do

Lion is a passionate advocate for its clients, communities, and the environment.  We design and implement solutions that result in measurable change. Our services include:

  • Strategic planning
  • Project management
  • Facilitation and engagement
  • Policy and program development
  • Research and analysis 

Why we do it

To protect the health of communities and the economy, we need to transition away from fossil fuel use, reduce emissions of harmful pollutants, and prepare for a changing climate. Today's institutions, regulations, and markets, however, make this too challenging for many to take action. We're here to help overcome those barriers and bring upon the change necessary to support their efforts and scale up their impact.
