What We Do
Founded in 2005 by Andrew W. Savitz, Sustainable Business Strategies assists corporations and nonprofit organizations to develop and implement sustainability strategies.
We believe that when business and societal interests overlap everyone wins. Our purpose is to help our clients identify those “sweet spots” and assist them to act on those opportunities.
We are deeply committed to our clients who, in turn, are deeply committed to moving forward on the path to sustainability.
We assist our clients to:
- Develop and implement sustainability strategies
- Assess, design, and implement sustainability programs
- Measure and report their economic, environmental and social performance, often with reference to the Global Reporting Initiative
- Develop and implement policies, procedures, and other internal guidelines
- Identify, track, and analyze issues, trends, regulations and voluntary codes of conduct
- Work on supply chain issues related to sustainability
- Build awareness and competency within the organization
- Engage with stakeholders, track and anticipate public concerns
- Communicate internally and externally
- Use sustainability to increase employee engagement
- Foster a culture and the capabilities needed to support their sustainability strategy

We typically have long-term advisory relations with our clients, working with them on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. We are extremely “hands on” and frequently work side by side with our clients. In addition to working on specific projects, we provide on-call support for sustainability questions and issues as they arise. We also provide half-day and full-day training sessions.
