Our Consulting Journey

Hyde Park Business Partnership is a student-run organization but we take our environmental sustainability consulting seriously. Since our founding in 2016, we spent years preparing for giving sustainability consulting and have since refined our consulting process and strategy.


  1. Research about environmental sustainability

    We began by researching the issue of pollution and waste in urban spaces, particularly by consumers and small commercial places. We examined the issue specifically in Illinois and Chicago, and were surprised to find how our state and city were lagging behind our neighbors in being environmentally sustainable.

  2. Research about how businesses can be more sustainable

  3. Survey students about how much sustainability matters to them

  4. Reach out to consultant experts in the field about how we could provide the most help to our clients

  5. Speak to successful environmental businesses to find how to emulate their success

  6. Contact local Hyde Park businesses to offer our help
