About Coldstream Consulting

Meet Our Team

The sustainability world has changed a lot in recent years. The era of green-washing and marketing hype is quickly giving way to structured emissions accounting and international standards that ensure neutrality and completeness.

Here at Coldstream, we’ve always believed that science and data should be the basis of sustainability planning. Our consultants are leaders in our field and are here to help.
