SUSTAINABILITY MISSION STATEMENT

SCI is committed to corporate social responsibility by promoting a culture among our employees which encourages sustainable practices, decisions, and recommendations and incorporates them into daily operations. It is our belief that sound environmental stewardship will benefit our communities, our employees, our clients and our company. We pride ourselves for looking both internally and externally for ways to incorporate sustainability into our business.

  • Our company’s sustainable practices incorporate programs to conserve natural resources and reduce environmental impact, while increasing employee awareness.

  • We promote sustainability externally by providing recommendations on environmentally mindful and low-impact procedures or products to our clients.
