Karen Malone, Founder and CEO of LitPark
Sustainability expert Karen Malone launched the Toronto-based agency LitPark inspired by the progressive New Hampshire town of Littleton that she visits every summer. Littleton boasts several socially responsible businesses – organic farms, grocery co-ops, craft breweries, sustainable coffee, and interior design – resilient to social, economic, and environmental risk.
Malone’s LitPark agency is committed to making sustainability a priority in every corporate boardroom. She and her network of experts have helped enterprises define their social purpose and create value for their customers that goes beyond their products and services and inspires brand and staff loyalty.
LitPark is the Canadian Associate for the global firm the Centre For Sustainability and Excellence, educating Canadian leaders on enhancing their business models, integrating sustainability, and keeping them relevant. Specific areas of focus are environmental impact, social progress, and financial results.
Whether it’s identifying sustainable supply chains, tracking compliance outcomes, or providing expertise on environment, social and governance programs, LitPark is a Canadian leader in this field.
