THINKWELL
SHIFT

Creating change through choice.

OUR VISION

Thinkwell Shift is a behavior change company that specializes in resource conservation. Located in Halifax, Nova Scotia, we create strategies and programs that encourage people to make lasting changes in their daily lives to conserve resources such as water, energy, and waste.  Our mission? Creating change, through choice. We work with people and organizations to understand their resource costs and then create programs that achieve cost savings by understanding, engaging, and guiding the customer to motivate behaviour change.

 

We work with utilities, businesses, students, homeowners, and everyone in between.

Thinkwell Shift is a sister company to market research firm Thinkwell Research.

The Green Schools Nova Scotia program teaches students, teachers, and the school community simple ways to become more energy efficient.

 

Our goal is to provide educational opportunities that help students and schools discover the impacts of consumption and encourage smart energy habits that change behaviour and waste less.
