Company biography

Yellow Sub Geo drives systematic change in the land generation sector to create a better future for people across the world. Based in the UK with staff in Canada, our purpose-driven business is designed to benefit all stakeholders, not just shareholders. 

Our mission is to use business as a force for good, focused around a few core principals:

  • We must be the change we seek in the world.
  • All business ought to be conducted as if people and place mattered.
  • Our products, practices and profits aspire to do no harm and benefit all.
  • Our co-dependency as humans means we are responsible for each other and future generations. There is no planet B.

As a catalyst for change, we operate throughout the UK and internationally, serving a diverse range of public and private sector clients, typically with technical problems that require creativity and lateral thinking to unlock value. 

Yellow Sub Geo’s core business is focused on the assessment and management of risk and liability associated with land quality, as well as ground and groundwater conditions.

We are also leading a number of national and international research and development (R&D) innovation projects in collaboration with a variety stakeholders that also share our core values.

To help guide our mission, we have set the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals as a target for success and founded the business on a triple-bottom-line philosophy, weighing equitably the needs of People, Planet and Profit.
