About us

We’re an independent sustainability data consultancy

Our vision is to be at forefront of ESG data management, supporting businesses globally to drive impactful change through the effective use of their sustainability data.

Sustainit was an idea born at a kitchen table in the Somerset countryside by Charlie Stockford who spotted a gap in the market whilst working in the corporate world. She was able to build a business that was both flexible and useful. Her focus on positivity, collaboration and independent spirit quickly helped us grow into a successful and globally renowned sustainability consultancy and the last 18 years have seen us go from strength to strength even during tough times.

In 2021, Charlie handed the reins to her daughter Pip. We’re now proudly, a 2nd generation, woman-owned and led business which saw record breaking growth in 2023. We’re excited to see what 2024 holds and whilst it might bring changes, we’ll never move away from delivering the data and technical services we are so well known and trusted for.

Our History

Bridging the gap
While working for a large corporate, our founder Charlie noticed that it was fast becoming a requirement for companies to implement CSR strategies and report on their non-financial data. There was a disconnect between the in-house teams doing the reporting and the software they needed to use. Huntstock (as the business was originally known) was born with the aim of bridging the gap between clients and their data management systems.
A new name
As the business grew, and Charlie took on more clients, she found she needed more in house technical support, so David (her husband) joined the team. The company also rebranded as ‘SustainIt Solutions’.
Surviving the recession
A tricky time for many businesses, we ducked, dived but ultimately survived the banking crisis and global recession. A hung parliament in 2010 and its effect on business effectively froze the growth of the business but once again, we weathered the storm.
The team grows
Fresh from university, Katie (Charlie and David’s daughter) became the third Stockford to join our family business. With a degree in Statistics under her belt, she joined the Client Support Team delivering day to day work for clients. She’s still with us today, and is now the longest serving member of the team.
Welcoming Pip
Another landmark year of growth and the addition of another Stockford (C&D’s other daughter), Pip. Having come from a commercial background, Pip joined the team to continue pushing forward the marketing and sales function of the business.
Our new CEO
We waved goodbye to David, who sailed into retirement and a year later our CEO and founder Charlie joined him! In 2021, Pip took over the business and despite the pandemic putting a temporary halt on growth, we were able to adapt to changes in the market, pivoting to encompass strategic services alongside data consulting.
A new look
After a target-smashing year, with a bigger team in place, we’ve rebranded to Sustainit with a new look and feel.
