SDC had already been walking its sustainability talk across its various company-wide operations since the beginning – yet it took until Year 14 to finally start writing it down! During its 2015 Company Annual Retreat, the SDC Team broke out into focus groups to address three key topic areas:

- Business Operations and Reality of our Mission
- Community Outreach and Engagement
Following the breakout group discussions, the full group reconvened to hear and vet each other’s ideas. The first edition of the SDC Sustainability Plan was finalized and published several months later. Affirming the importance of sustainable practices within the firm’s own offices as well as for its clients and the greater community, the Plan is intended to guide all aspects of SDC’s internal and external operations. Several years later, the SDC Sustainability Plan is now due for an update! Find the full text of the original version posted here.
