The Sustainable Switch

Simple solutions that just make sense.

Our academically diverse staff work together to approach any problem. By putting brilliant minds together from various fields, we are able to think outside of the box and provide our clients with the right solutions.

Our Process

The Sustainable Switch offers a range of services to help your business, organization, or program to achieve the results you’re after. Not sure exactly what you need, or what it costs? Our talented specialists are available to explain what services may be right for you, and how we can make it happen together.

The Sustainable Switch helps clients understand the role they can play in creating a sustainable future.

How exactly do we do this? See below for a simple breakdown of our process.

An initial meeting will take place where we will discuss our services, your business, and answer any questions either party may have about the other. After this, a follow-up meeting will be scheduled.

During this follow-up meeting, you will inform us of any specific issues you want addressed, or let us know if you do not have any specific areas of focus in mind. If this is the case, we can discuss how to proceed.

Once all parties have agreed on the area(s) of focus, our team will create one or more deliverables for your business (in whatever medium is agreed upon), detailing your options. These recommendations will depend on a number of factors such as cost and impact.

At this point in the process, you will be given the option of taking our recommendations and moving forward on your own, or we can continue working together, with our team assisting with implementation.

Depending on the decision made, the following steps will differ per client. However, regardless of this decision, all of our client agreements will include requirements for follow-up and monitoring.

Our Services

Our passionate, talented staff come from a range of sectors – ensuring we can help your business, organization, or office to become a more sustainable and beneficial member of the local community, regardless of the industry. Through collaborative problem-solving, we develop customized, manageable approaches that deliver results and create positive change.

We know that because of our customizable nature, our services can seem too open-ended for some. In anticipation of this, we have prepared some examples. Select a service category to learn more.

Our Resources

In addition to our consulting services, The Sustainable Switch offers high-quality sustainable content through this online platform. On this website, you can find the following informational and educational pages:

The Switch

The Switch is an educational, research-based platform, hosted by The Sustainable Switch, with the aim of providing individuals with relevant, sustainable knowledge.

As of January 2021, The Switch will be working in partnership with a number of educational institutions in the region to provide students and recent graduates with a platform to share and discuss their experiences and ideas relating to the 3 Pillars of Sustainability.

External Resources

While we continue working hard to provide the public with our own original resources, we also want to provide local businesses & communities with invaluable information curated by other trustworthy sources.

Community Resources

The Sustainable Switch’s community resource page was created with the sole aim of providing the GTA & surrounding areas with access to informative, easy-to-use resources – making it simpler than ever to be sustainable every day! From simple recycling diagrams to community engagement opportunities, we’ve got you covered. As we continue working with local community members, businesses & government, we plan on adding more materials to help communities overcome any barriers they may face.
