  Our Story…In Short  

TNS Israel was re-established in 2012 by four founders who studied strategic leadership for sustainability at the Balkinga Institute of Technology in Sweden. The organizational DNA in its new format was changed and expanded, and in 2015 the organization was registered as a social benefit company.


The organization is part of an international network, which has been operating since 1989 around the world to promote sustainability, and helps public and business organizations, including IKEA, Nike, Interface, Scandic, Philips, municipalities and other entities, to implement sustainability strategically.

The re-establishment was made after Limor Alof - a pioneer in the field of sustainability in Israel who founded the organization in 1993 - decided in 2008 to halt its activities. The re-founding of the organization was done with the blessing and support of Alof.

  A Multidisciplinary Team  

The name of the game is teamwork, offering diverse perspectives and abilities through multidisciplinary skills. The organization's team consists of professionals from various disciplines with extensive practical experience. This includes working with the business sector, civil society organizations, the government, the Knesset and local authorities to promote and implement sustainability within Israeli society.

Our team members have experience in establishing and managing organizations, lecturing in academia, managing and implementing projects, writing academic articles and media columns, leading research, writing position papers and guiding processes and forums.
