ECOLIBRIO is a sustainable development consultancy helping our clients overcome complex economic, environmental, and social challenges while respecting local values.
Ecolibrio is not a typical consulting firm. Like our clients, we look for long-term solutions. This means we develop relationships with clients to ensure ideas become plans, plans become action, and action becomes legacy.
We believe that sustainable development comes from within communities and organizations, and that it is grounded in the balance (the source of our company name) of economic, environmental, and social needs.
We've been working with First Nation, nonprofit, public, and private sector clients.
Our Team is comprised of John Lerner, Tine Rossing and independent associates.
