Strategic Design
S2D2 is a cutting edge sustainability consultancy and design firm of systems that re-invent the way we manufacture products, practice agriculture, generate energy, and provide infrastructure
safely. intelligently. regeneratively.

Sustainability Advisory Services
S2D2 serves clients who are either:
just beginning the transition to operating more sustainably
or
already using sustainability as a strategic driver and are ready to pursue next evolution strategies such as

operational self-sufficiency and resilience
optimizing materials selection, use, and security
closing production cycle loops through resource reclamation
employing innovative technology and systems design
employing total cost accounting to valuate resources and reflect true prosperity
social innovation creating values-led brands

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.

S2D2 provides an unduplicated perspective to environmental and sustainability services. Whether your company is contemplating how to begin incorporating sustainability into its business planning, or it has already successfully developed a sustainability platform and you now seek beyond best-in-class sustainable practices, S2D2 can offer a suite of services to meet your company where it is on the path of sustainability.
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:
