Blue Marble Project helps companies and philanthropic foundations navigate smoothly through a complex environmental landscape. We guide clients through analysis, strategy, and tactical execution to ensure successful outcomes and win campaigns.

We work with…

Companies with an environmental product, project, or policy change that need assistance navigating through regulatory and legislative processes, media and political strategy, and alliance building.

Philanthropists and foundations that want to maximize the impact of their investments in environmental causes. We help educate you on the issues, evaluate the actors, and develop sound strategies for achieving your goals. We can even design and manage grant programs for those that don’t have the time or capacity.

    Building Alliances

    • Stakeholder Mapping
    • Government Relations
    • Cross-sector Collaboration

    More than twenty five years spent working with elected officials and leaders in the nonprofit, business, and labor sectors in New York and beyond has resulted in longstanding relationships built on diplomacy and skillful communication. This is crucial to finding common ground, particularly when dealing with a challenging regulatory or political environment. As a result, Blue Marble Project often succeeds where others can’t, by building consensus among seemingly polarized stakeholders that results in open doors, mutually beneficial dialogue, and concrete outcomes.
