HR

S2D2 performs services in two vital areas that support the modification and optimization of current outmoded and unsustainable systems, particularly in manufacturing processes, municipal infrastructure, farming methods and energy generation. The transformation of these processes eventually penetrates the very organizational structures and people involved with them. The only way for true sustainable change to occur is to change the way we think about things. Everything. And then align our actions accordingly.

Strategic Planning and Organizational Sustainability Structuring

Implementing an Organizational Sustainability Plan is one of the most profound commitments any group — a company, country, or community — can make regarding its future. Sound planning and forethought enable the most effective deployment of such a massive shift to any organization. S2D2 can assist in all phases of planning and implementation:

  1. Create the Value Proposition
    grounded in whole systems design and the business advantage it offers, we prepare leaders for the organizational transition to sustainability
  2. Get Intimate with the Entity
    we perform in-depth scoping to understand the sustainability quotient of operations and culture; we then devise how to leverage opportunities, mitigate exposures and overcome constraints
  3. Align and Engage
    we facilitate internal stakeholder engagement through communication, governance and representation structuring; we identify the most advantageous external strategic alliances
  4. Measure and Report
    we benchmark Environmental, Carbon and Social Footprints using the most robust protocols and data management systems available; provide in-depth analysis to inform sustainability strategic planning; support the development of internal capacity to track and measure future performance against sustainability metrics
  5. Devise and Integrate Sustainability Strategies and Policies
  6. we serve in an advisory capacity at the strategic planning table, devise bespoke triple bottom-line decision-making criteria; we contribute natural and technology-based systems perspectives to design and procurement teams; and always, offer provocative engagement and unabashed guidance
