Blue Earth Consultants Joins ERG

I’m excited to announce the next step in the evolution of Blue Earth Consultants. Blue Earth is now officially part of Eastern Research Group, Inc. (ERG).

I founded Blue Earth in 2005 to help our clients find creative, long-term solutions for resource protection and preservation. Over the years, we’ve lived by our core values of integrity, partnership, excellence, compassion, and sustainability. On this basis, we’ve done great work from our home base here in the San Francisco Bay area.

Joining ERG is a natural next step for us. Since 1984, ERG has helped its clients protect the environment, improve worker health and safety, ensure the safety of food and drugs, and develop and implement strategies for sustainability. ERG is committed to a culture of collaboration, respect, and dedication to client service, and, like Blue Earth, ERG has been living that philosophy since the company’s founding.

We would never make this move unless we were convinced that it was a big win for our clients. You’ll be able to access a whole new set of skills—economic modeling, climate science, lifecycle analysis, digital solutions, and laboratory services, to name just a few.

And of course you’ll still get the same world-class service that Blue Earth is known for. We’ll continue to operate as Blue Earth. You’ll still call us at the same number or email us at the same address. It’s everything you’ve always loved about working with Blue Earth—along with an expanded suite of services and expertise to help you reach your goals.

I can’t wait to start introducing you to some of our new colleagues!
