Purpose for Progress
Shelton Group is a team of communicators with a heart for our world and a head for business. We've been speaking the language of energy and sustainability marketing for more than 20 years.
Whether you're a Fortune 100 or a 501c3, we know you need to hit business goals. Our purpose is to turn the good you do for people and the planet into market success for your organization. Let's collaborate.
We make the complex simple and package it in ways that are engaging and relatable.
For a world where sustainability is ordinary and every home and building is responsible with energy, water and waste.
Earth's problems can't be solved in siloes. We have connections, and we're delighted to share them. Need inspiration? Need a partner? See our offerings.
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.
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.
