Selected Work from the Last 10 Years
Since 2005, we've worked with more than 100 clients, many on multi-year projects covering a variety of sustainability issues. Putting case studies up for all of them was overwhelming, so we've opted to share highlights of our favorite projects below.

Note: we haven't included a description of every service that we provided for each client, but if you see a project tagged with something (e.g. "materiality") and you'd like to learn more about it, just contact us for a full debrief on the details.
Since 2005, we've worked with a mining company as it's grown its sustainability program into one recognized internationally as best-in-class. Our work has evolved over the last ten years, from helping to develop the company's first corporate sustainability plan to ensuring that the sustainability report aligned with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). As the mining industry as a whole evolved, we provided insight into how different third-party standards overlapped and diverged, to better manage internal resources. Now that the client has a well-established sustainability team in place, our role has shifted to supporting their evolving sustainability strategy, particularly as it relates to investor expectations. We help with the annual Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) questionnaire, and provide assistance for FTSE4Good, Corporate Knights, and NAQDAQ sustainability ranking models.
In 2014, we began working with a mid-sized IT and data analytics company with more than two dozen locations around the United States. The company had a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) team, but was at the beginning stages of its sustainability journey. SSC was hired to help the CSR team develop a sustainability roadmap, conduct a baseline carbon footprint, engage green champions around the company, and help prepare the firm's first sustainability report. In 2015, we continue to assist in our client's journey with a follow-up carbon footprint, employee survey, and additional coaching and support.
