Supporting business success

Progressive businesses understand that sustainability delivers resource efficiency, competitive advantage, and bottom-line growth. Sustainable Solutions Corporation is proud to support some of the world’s most sustainable companies by being their go-to partner for holistic sustainability strategies and individual initiatives throughout these programs.

 

“As our partner in sustainability, the SSC team is an extension of myself within our organization and ensures the success of ASSA ABLOY’s sustainability program. I could not be more pleased with SSC’s work.”

Amy Vigneux, ASSA ABLOY

A progressive sustainability program is not focused on a single project, but encompasses initiatives that support one another.

SSC works with you to understand your operations and develop the scope and goals of your sustainability program. Considering applicable constraints, we develop a high-level strategy, along with recommended actions, that will provide the most value to your organization through realistic short, medium and long-term goals. We work with you to refine this strategy overtime, enabling you to reach your goals. SSC is committed to your success and provides support throughout the implementation of each step in your sustainability program.

Beyond operations, product development and the goods that corporations produce represent one of the most fertile areas for sustainable improvement.

Through transparency, improved manufacturing practices, and product innovation, SSC helps customers optimize their products, find new customers, and win when it matters most.

 

“The EPDs we’ve published provide transparent information about the environmental impacts of our ceiling products. This gives our customers the confidence that our products deliver on the promises we have made.”

Life Cycle Assessment

Life cycle assessment is used to understand the impacts and benefits of a product across its life cycle. LCAs can be used to meet green building requirements, transparency initiatives, and as a critical tool for designing more sustainable products.

Environmental Product Declaration

An Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) is a single source of transparent, scientifically compelling information which discloses the full environmental impact of a product across its life cycle.

Sustainable Product Innovation

Sustainable Product Innovation enables product teams to consider alternative materials, processes, sourcing, and other aspects of a product which can result in cost savings, reduced environmental impacts, and a competitive sales advantage.

Material Ingredient Reporting

SSC helps clients adhere to material ingredient transparency initiatives through Declare Label development, Health Product Declarations, and Manufacturer’s Inventory reporting.

If you want to increase your profit margin, reducing waste and improving production efficiency is an easy and powerful way to start. Committed to keeping our clients at the forefront of their industries, SSC offers operations assessments to improve an organization’s operating efficiency, reduce risks, and ensure lasting competitive advantage.

 

“I am very impressed with SSC’s professionalism, attention to detail, and, most of all, the level of cost savings identified through this project. Not only did they provide a roadmap of how to implement improvements at my facility, they quantified and emphasized recommendations that could be accomplished immediately with minimal upfront costs and quick paybacks.”
