We present organizations with new and innovative ways to effectively manage their sustainability and deal with their complex issues. Our aim is to help them recognize, understand and manage the loops that are necessary for their survival and responsible behavior. In other words we enable them to…Close the Loop.
The company provides the following services:

- Design of the Sustainable Supply Chain Strategy
- Ecolabels and Life Cycle Assessment of Products/Services

Close the Loop was founded in 2011, in Greece, by two friends and colleagues, and in less than two years has managed to acquire clients (SMEs & MNEs) and partners across various countries in Europe, Middle East, N. America and Asia.
The contribution of the company to Greek society became particularly evident in 2012, via the provision of advisory and coaching services to SMEs in the Agriculture sector, who became interested in sustainability, as a new and innovative way to market and highlight the environmental and qualitative attributes of their products, after looking into foreign export markets.
Moreover, as a result of the financial crisis, Close the Loop further assists Greek organizations, of all sizes, to better manage and reduce their operational costs, via the implementation of environmental and social initiatives.
