Sustainability Consultant: Brown & Wilmanns Environmental, Santa Barbara

Brown & Wilmanns Environmental, a consulting firm based in Santa Barbara

Find green business solutions
Mike Brown and his partner, Eric Wilmanns, are the principals of Brown & Wilmanns Environmental, a consulting firm based in Santa Barbara.

They work for Nike (NYSE:NKE) and Timberland (NYSE:TBL), for FedEx Kinko's, Aveda, Ben & Jerry's. Its edge, besides experience, is technical expertise--Brown has a Ph.D. from Cornell, Wilmanns joined Brown at Patagonia from Los Alamos National Laboratory. And they bring a determined realpolitik approach to corporate sustainability. "I've sat in the seat of the people we work with," Brown says.

Brown and Wilmanns have developed a "materials tool kit," a 100-page manual listing all kinds of everyday materials--woods, plastics, building materials--and rating them according to their impact. "It allows the buyer to figure out where a material they are currently using, or considering, falls on the scale," says Brown, "and what might be a better alternative." It's a kind of real-time sustainability index.

"The cutting edge, the thing that is getting more traction, is the effort to sell services rather than products," Brown says. It's a shift in perspective that can transform a business.
