Hi, I'm Thom Baker, and I want to help businesses build a better, greener future.

At the beginning of 2020, like most people I found myself with the time to reflect. I got to spend time with my daughter, sharing in my love of nature.  Through that time I revaluated the work I wanted to do, and how I wanted to do it. After 12 years creating visual identities, it was time to become more strategic.

I want to make an actual impact, to make the world a better place.

Through Thom Baker Consultancy I take the strategic questions I have always asked as a designer to the boardroom, and use them in areas where I could make a difference. The International Energy Agencies Clean Energy tracking report (see below) offers a hitlist of industries where I can do just that. I want to make companies making positive impact in these areas the obvious choice for investors, and customers.

Tracking clean energy progress

The IEA's Tracking Clean Energy Progress (TCEP) reports assess the status of 46 critical energy technologies and sectors and provides recommendations on how they can get 'on track' for Net Zero by 2050 Scenario.
