Daniel Aronson is the creator of the Value of ValuesTM Model, which specializes in creating value through sustainability and responsibility. Daniel has helped his clients identify and quantify over $2 billion in sustainability-driven business value.

He coined the term “submerged value” and is the author of the book The Value of Values (forthcoming). He is also the creator of Impacts ScienceTM, True Plastic ImpactTM, 4D MaterialityTM, and Customers ScienceTM.

Daniel has guest lectured at Harvard Business School and MIT Sloan’s Sustainability Lab and has written or been featured in over 100 articles and publications.

Over his career, Daniel has:

  • Created tools that, for example, make it possible to set science-based carbon targets in hours instead of months, perform a better materiality analysis in half the time, and identify and value submerged risks
  • Developed Impacts Science, which enables companies to assess their full impact – not just financial but also the impact of their products, operations, and purpose
  • Created the first, most comprehensive full impact measure for plastic, True Plastic Impact
  • Developed Customers Science and the InVESTTM model, which together quantify the effect of sustainability and responsibility on customer choice and revenue
  • Conducted the first research that examined which sustainable value chain practices actually work
  • Quantified for the first time the effect of sustainability leadership on innovation
  • Daniel holds an MBA from the MIT Sloan School of Management, and a BA with High Honors from UC Berkeley.
