History

Shelton Group started in 1991 as a one-woman generalist copywriting operation.

Business took off, and by the late '90s, Shelton Group had clients in health care, higher education, and, most importantly, energy.

Our research opened the door to bigger and bigger clients, and our creativity kept them coming back for more. But we were just one of many experts in all of our categories, except for one - energy and environmental causes.

We filled that void in the industry by becoming the only agency we knew of to specialize in energy efficiency and sustainability back in 2005. Today we've got 15 years of trended market insights and sustainability communications experience under our collective belt, and we leverage it to ensure our client's actions and stories position them ahead of the pack.

People

Left brain + right brain + heart

We're a unique blend of storytellers, strategists, digital pros and researchers with deep experience in the energy and environment
space. (We're also football champs, hot tea junkies and Vimeo Staff Pick regulars.) Whatever we do, we do it with heart. And that
makes all the difference.
