Sustainability Services
1. Decision-Making  Services 
    A. Sustainable Development Services:
These services consist of applications of my Sustainability Synthesis to measure levels of sustainability, and/or to aid Applicants to make sustainable development decisions for their projects. Sustainability Synthesis 101 applications use the 3 pillars of sustainability - striving to balance physical, social and economic demands, now and over time, transcending to several levels of analysis and to the personal scale as needed. It guides you to new solutions.

   B. Personal Sustainability:
Sustainability Synthesis 101 is a method to guide the making of important decisions.  It guides you in a fast and effective way to reach your own solutions.  This Template or method of analysis can be utilized to make personal, business, corporate or any enterprise decisions. 

It is based on the triad of sustainability to balance: planet, people and prosperity. This triad is translated to the personal level as body, spirit and mind respectively.  This method reminds us of the Aristotle Rhetoric Triangle.  Evaluations are done for the current time and into the future.  Sustainable decisions are like a drop of water making ripples to near and far in your way to change your self and the world.  See a 2 minutes video about the core of this analysis in the Welcome section. Case studies, and testimonials from Clients ( under development).
