NEWS: Strategic Sustainability Consulting Releases 2007 Sustainability Report

"It's important to show our clients that we practice what we preach," says SSC President Jennifer Woofter.

WASHINGTON, DC – January 29, 2008 – Strategic Sustainability Consulting (SSC) is pleased to announce the release of its second annual Sustainability Report. In the report, readers will find information on SSC's economic, environmental, and social performance—all based on the Global Reporting Initiative's Sustainability Reporting Guidelines.

"Being transparent about our social and environmental impacts is key to our credibility as providers of sustainability consulting services," said SSC President Jennifer Woofter. "It's important to show our clients that we practice what we preach."

SSC works with organizations around the world to evaluate the environmental and social impact of their operations, then develops a sustainability action plan with practical steps for clients to take to "green" their footprint. An essential component of those recommendations is a communications strategy for sustainability topics.

"Whether it's a page on their website or a stand-alone sustainability report, we tell our clients that transparency is the single most important factor in being a responsible organization" said Woofter. "Sustainability is on everyone's mind these days, and businesses need to be able to communicate how they are dealing with issues ranging from carbon emissions and climate change to human rights in their supply chain. And that's true for us as well."

In addition to providing an excellent background on the company's recent operations, Strategic Sustainability Consulting also hopes this report will serve as an example to other small businesses, showing them that sustainability reporting isn't just for big companies—but can be beneficial for all organizations.
