About

Our purpose is to AMPLIFY IMPACT.

Our values

Connect the dots

Critical thinking turns information into insight

It all begins with a question. Why? How? What else? Sometimes finding answers requires shifting our views and exploring different angles. We believe that the best results come from questioning everything, challenging assumptions, and staying open to the unexpected.

Create the unexpected

Purposeful creativity unlocks our best work

We are creators to the core. We create with intention, providing fresh and exciting work that is useful and meaningful. We aim to unleash creative brilliance, approaching each project in the spirit of discovery, collaboration, and play.

Venture forward

Continuous innovation unlocks our best work

As we perpetually press forward, we recognize that we are always working towards something bigger than ourselves and our company. Our innovative spirit is driven by a desire to continuously advance our team, our clients, and the ESG space.

Bring out the best

Inspiring greatness is essential to amplifying impact

We challenge each other to show up as our best selves in every way. We create client partnerships built on authenticity, accountability, and honest feedback. Because when we bring out the best in ourselves and others, there’s no limit to what we can achieve.

Embrace parallax

Our differences make us stronger

Our name says it all. We truly believe that we are more than the sum of our parts, that a diversity of perspectives and backgrounds makes us stronger. From our inception, we have remained committed to looking at things from multiple angles – the “parallax effect” – to develop the most well-rounded approach. Now we’re working to create an environment where everyone shows up as their full selves. Not just because it’s the right thing to do, but also because it makes our best work even better.

Our team of passionate experts is driven by a collective desire to make an impact. We are strategists, communicators, designers, and client engagement specialists, each with deep sustainability expertise and a unique perspective on how to solve our clients' challenges. Our diverse perspectives allow us to envision innovative, creative solutions for our partners.

Culture

thinkPARALLAX is headquartered in Southern California with employees distributed across the country. We are an agile, tight-knit team united by passion, curiosity, and a desire to make an impact through our work. We are known for industry-leading standards of quality that combine strategic thinking, meaningful collaboration, and creativity. And while we are as serious and professional as the most corporate client, we believe in bringing a sense of levity and fun to all that we do. In addition to being a certified B Corporation, we are deeply committed to celebrating diversity and creating an inclusive workplace where employees are encouraged to be their authentic selves.

PARALLAXploration

PARALLAXploration is our company-funded travel program designed to expand our perspective while gaining inspiration and personal growth. From the untouched volcanic landscapes of the Azores to the bustling streets of Vietnam, PARALLAXploration has taken us to 20+ countries since 2014. This year, our team is traveling to destinations within the United States to explore the wide range of cultures that exist within our own borders.
