About Us

Committed to Global Equity

As governments deliberate the importance of climate change, this global phenomenon is already having effects throughout the world as glaciers melt, sea levels rise, precipitation increases, coastlines erode, heat waves strengthen, droughts prolong, and extreme weather events increase and intensify. Like COVID-19, climate change is stressing the resilience of our communities and is disproportionately impacting underserved people, including those that are low-income, disabled, LGBTQ,  and Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC).

 

Sustainability is developing strategies to mitigate and adapt to climate change as it aims to regenerate the relationship between our economy, environment, and equity. Its focus is on meeting the needs of the present communities without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. Equity is an inherent component of sustainability because it strives to eliminate systems of oppression in order to reduce barriers and increase access to factors for a quality livelihood, with a focus on historically underserved and marginalized communities.

 

In spite of sustainability’s comprehensive lens, it is common for projects to ignore social impacts and perpetuate systems of oppression. I founded Equity and Sustainability because I am committed to helping our clients increase their sustainability and uphold equity. Our qualified team offers years of experience in improving social and environmental impacts as we employ a holistic approach that recognizes and regenerates the interconnections between sectors. We can help you assess your progress with sustainability and equity and develop recommendations for improving your impact.

 

I look forward to working with you.
