Make an impact
Cut through the noise
The line between science and its societal impacts is increasingly blurry.
The time for clarity—and change—is now.
Governments, institutions, think tanks, and organizations need someone who can navigate complex scientific concepts, understand project impacts, and build capacity for program success.
Helping clients through challenging discussions and answering big questions forms the foundation of Sallie Greenberg Consulting, where I leverage my experience in increasing capacity for carbon management transformations for the betterment of society.
Consulting at the intersection
of science, sustainability,
Throughout my career in carbon storage, climate change mitigation, energy transition, and beyond, I’ve developed strategies that bring a social lens to understanding and facilitating the implementation of objective science to get results of the highest quality.
Via strategic advising, program evaluation, and research on complex environmental challenges such as carbon capture and storage, I combine quantitative and qualitative research methods with conscious leadership to hold space for conflicting viewpoints and yield understanding among diverse groups.
Most importantly, I work hard to help you make the change
you want to see in the world.

Hi, I’m Dr. Sallie Greenberg, an environmental geosciences expert bridging the gap between rock-solid science, policy, and communication.
During my 30 year career in research and work in carbon management—including leading the first bioenergy carbon capture and storage (BECCS) project in the world as a Principal Research Scientist at the Illinois State Geological Survey – University of Illinois—I’ve developed a demonstrated expertise in both the technical and social realms of energy transition, carbon management, and sustainability.
My work focuses on getting to the heart of complex problems. By humanizing science, I help companies gain clarity, reduce risk, and engage more meaningfully.
Together, we’ll design and implement strategies anchored in the highest standards to create the next best energy systems.
