Our story

Our roots go back to 2016, when we first established ourselves as Human Behaviour Change for Animals (HBCA). This starting point was born out of a recognition that the human animal was the common denominator of both the problems and solutions facing those seeking to improve the lives of other species. This insight, about how and why people behave the way they do could provide solutions to challenging issues that affect animals. After all, people interact with animals every day – by owning pets or farming animals, or through the choices we make about the food we eat or the clothes we wear.
It was this work with humans and other species, that increasingly took us into other linked and related areas, such as human wellbeing, environment and conservation, providing bespoke solutions that are innovative, creative, and affordable to a wide range of organisations and individuals across different sectors. Human Behaviour Change for Life was founded as a result of this increasingly diverse work. Today HBCA proudly exists under the umbrella of HBCL.
