Here’s where it all began

The founders of Copperleaf launched the company in 2000. It may have been the dawn of a new millennium, but people realized that much of modern society’s foundational infrastructure (a lot of which was built in the early-to-mid 1900s) was nearing end-of-life.

Now, combine aging infrastructure with increased regulation, growing reliability expectations, tighter budget constraints, and a seismic shift in digital transformation for many industries. Organizations managing critical infrastructure needed new solutions to help them make strategic decisions about how to deliver the most value with the resources they had.

The company was created from the concept of bringing financial and engineering decision-making together. We knew we could help organizations do things differently—and turn over a new leaf. This inspired our founders and informed our name.”

Turning over a new leaf

Our founders understood how important safe, reliable, and sustainable infrastructure would be to the future health and prosperity of society. And that organizations with limited means would have to make increasingly complicated trade-offs while setting priorities. Those first Copperleafers believed that value-based decision-making in a transparent, data-driven environment was the right formula for success.

Our purpose was born:

Building a better world, one decision at a time.

From the beginning, we have been passionate about helping those who manage critical infrastructure improve their investment decision-making and planning processes. Great decisions create value by improving safety, reliability, profitability, and social responsibility—allowing organizations to do the right things for all the right reasons.
