THE FIRM

Reeve Consulting is an experienced boutique consultancy devoted to exceptional results in ethical and sustainable purchasing. Our services are simple; we help our clients enhance their brand, their profitability, and their social license to operate by working with them to strategically re-think how they approach the ethical and environmental issues affecting their supply chain. Built on a foundation of success across all sectors, we combine a unique mix of leading-edge expertise with extensive experience working on the ‘inside’ - managing, implementing and optimising ethical and sustainability programs that work.

In 2003 Tim Reeve & Associates was formed to answer the need for a firm expert in sustainable purchasing, strategic planning, corporate social responsibility, and stakeholder engagement. Specifically, companies needed help from guides who, themselves, had designed and implemented successful programs. In 2007, Tim re-branded the company under Reeve Consulting, reflecting the increasing focus on customised solutions. Today, the firm’s clients include many recognised leaders in the business, governmental and non-profit communities.

Reeve Consulting integrates ethical and sustainable purchasing into its own operations as a consultancy by purchasing carbon off-sets for business travel, purchasing certified Fair trade and organic products, such as coffee , chocolate and other foods. We apply rigourous environmental standards to our purchase of paper products  e.g. 100% post-consumer FSC certified recycled paper products and we support local social enterprises for other supplies and services.
