Responsible and ethical production and consumption redefines growth, allowing to reduce waste and proliferate society-wise benefits. The crucial question here is: How can waste be transformed into a resource, that would produce new value?
In fact, paying attention to sustainability in business can become a new advantage. Sustainable design, prevention and reuse of waste can be profitable: across the EU it has a potential to generate up to 604 billion euro net, which is 8% of the annual turnover. At the same time, the reduction of greenhouse effect is estimated by 2-4 % (450 billions of ton annually).
For companies adhering to sustainable initiatives means staying among the leaders by strengthening corporate reputation, innovating their products, optimising operations, reducing costs in the long term, and pursuing opportunities in the new markets.

SSC has a unique set of competences in sustainability and development. We have advised and worked in a number of projects in:
• Regional development
• Transport economics
• Waste management
• Real estate
• Smart cities
• Energy

A solid set of knowledge has been integrated into a holistic and comprehensive view of sustainability and circular economy to serve as a proper tool to advise companies and public organisations developing an appropriate strategy to reach the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
It is time to change and get ready for the brighter, sustainable future.
The Sustainable Development Goals are the United Nations blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. The 17 Goals address the global challenges and are all interconnected.
They are foreseen to be achieved by 2030 with the joint help of both single individuals and companies .

How we can help

Environmental Social Governance and compliance with NFRD
In accordance with Environmental Social Governance European companies that need to follow European NFRD (Non-financial reporting directive) and include their social and environmental impact in the annual report. In specific, sustainability report requires companies to disclose information about their policies (including implemented due diligence processes), outcomes, risks and risk management, and key performance indicators (KPIs) relevant to the business with respect to the following issues: environment, social and employee issues, human rights, and bribery and corruption.

We provide assistance with the report and non-financial disclosure preparation in accordance with GRI and IIW guidelines.

The bigger companies that are obliged to draw up a non-financial report, have to also make sure their suppliers are sustainable and compliant at every process of production.
