It's the right thing to do.
Not only do we help our clients effectively manage environmental resources and minimize environmental impacts, we also conduct our own operations in the most sustainable manner possible. As a business, we are committed to reducing our impact on the environment, as reflected in our sustainability vision statement:
“SWCA believes that achieving a sustainable balance between humanity’s social, economic, and environmental needs is essential in providing a healthy planet for future generations. We believe our sustainability actions will create a stronger company and will help ensure a prosperous future for our employees and clients and the communities we live in. We will be innovative and proactive leaders in sustainable business practices, and we will promote such practices by serving as a positive example for others.”
Creating a clean and sustainable environment for future generations is important to our staff, to our communities, and to our world. Our ongoing company commitment to sustainability is demonstrated by our work helping others implement sustainability practices, and by our dedication to good corporate citizenship. To that end, we have developed a Sustainability Program with specific actions and goals to reduce our environmental footprint. We also established a Sustainability Working Group of employee representatives from our offices and corporate departments to exchange ideas, best practices, and recommendations for companywide actions and standards.

SWCA has also developed a detailed Sustainability Plan which includes the following four key environmental sustainability initiatives:
SWCA is a founding member of the The Climate Registry, an organization with rigorous standards for measuring and reporting greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Since 2007 SWCA has completed a companywide carbon inventory and developed an annual GHG emissions report. SWCA received a successful third party Climate Registry verification of our 2008 GHG Inventory, which will be used to measure future progress in reducing emissions.
