Sustainability Solutions Group helps organizations and not-for-profits comprehensively address their climate change impacts. Every non-profit organization's operations have a carbon footprint: air and ground travel, heating and cooling offices, powering equipment, paper use, shipping, and waste disposal, to name a few.
1 Develop carbon consciousness
SSG works with your management and staff to cultivate deep understanding of climate change and its relationship to your mission and operations. We identify emission sources and create a comprehensive action plan to change culture and practices that will make your organization carbon conscious.
2 Perform a carbon baseline audit
To cut emissions you need to know your baseline: your organization’s current emissions. SSG is an independent, third party certified carbon auditor that uses internationally recognized standards (ISO 14064 and the GHG Protocol Initiative) and specialized software to create accurate emissions assessments. The software can track ongoing emissions to compare them to the baseline, providing an ongoing audit
3 Plan for carbon sustainability
SSG analyzes your carbon emissions audit and works with you to develop policies and plans with timelines and milestones for sustainable energy use across your organization. We identify short, medium and long term actions, as well as the amount of relative effort, funding and payback involved
4 Carbon reduction tools and tracking
SSG works with you to implement emissions reduction actions based on the specific nature of your organizational operations, starting with the relatively easy low hanging fruit for actions. Then we move on to realistically addressing more complex challenges. We'll connect you to the latest tools to track your emissions progress while ensuring you can continue to carry out your operations effectively.
