CCOP is a 21st century consultancy that helps organizations leverage their purpose for business and social impact. We work with corporations, NGOs and foundations to define, refine, integrate and implement their purpose, CSR and social missions.
To guide businesses and brands along their journey to ignite purpose at their core – their aspirational reason for being beyond profits.
No longer just consumers, we are now citizens who want more. More sharing. More caring. More meaning. More understanding about why brands and organizations exist, what they stand for, how they engage employees, people and communities, and how they play a positive role in the world.
We’ve believed this for decades, and pioneered the idea and breakthrough programs that brought purpose to life. In the beginning it was “if” an organization existed beyond profits. Now it is about the “how,” with the power of purpose proven across every metric: revenues, productivity, innovation, employee retention, consumer loyalty, and community support.
Bringing purpose into the core of your business is the single most important action you can take. We call it the evolution of purpose. It’s a process. It takes vision, patience, and organizational champions.
After three decades leading this work in a variety of firms, we know no single agency has the depth of talent and experience to meet the demands of clients, citizen consumers, and employees.
That’s why we architected The Purpose Collaborative, to build flexible, hand-picked teams delivering bold, individualized solutions for organizations along their purpose journey.
The purpose revolution has finally arrived. The world urgently needs business to step up and help solve the great societal challenges of our times. We can no longer afford to engage only when it’s convenient. Let us partner with you. It’s time to act. On Purpose.

Happiness is our natural state, for each of us and for humanity as a whole, argues John Izzo. But that happiness is being stolen by insidious mental patterns that he depicts as thieves: the thief of control, the thief of conceit, the thief of coveting, the thief of consumption, and the thief of comfort. He discovered these thieves as he sought the true source of happiness during a year-long sabbatical. Izzo, a purpose collaborative member, shows how these same thieves of personal happiness are destroying society as well. This book will help us all discover, develop, and defend the happiness that is our true nature while creating a world we all want to live in.
