About SJMC

Hi, I'm Scott.

As a young environmental activist, a teacher once told me "instead of pointing your finger, go get it dirty!". Since then I've dedicated my studies, career, and lifestyle to being part of the solution.

After studying sustainable agriculture in Australia, New Zealand, and Hawaii, at the age of 23, I started a company called Out on a Limb where I worked primarily with golf courses, municipal parks and conservation authorities to identify opportunities for resource efficiency and mitigate environmental risks.

After 13 years I decided to apply my sustainability reporting and consulting experience to other business sectors. I developed a deconstruction dashboard for construction and renovation project managers (Purchased by IEGCA). I helped with the launch of Zero Waste Canada and became their first Executive Director. I was a Board and Certification Committee member of the Zero Waste International Alliance. I developed a process for recycling baby car seats and PLA beverage cups into 3d printing filament. I've assisted companies in achieving B Corp, TRUE and GEO Certifications and fulfilling reporting requirements of ISO programs. I became very interested in being part of the Zero Waste revolution.

I've taken this knowledge and interest of ultimate resource efficiency and have developed a service portfolio for companies interested in cutting costs, exploring new sources of revenue and embedding action into their brand of purpose.

I was one of the first ZWBA, and have now achieved TRUE Advisor accreditation too. I'm excited to apply my knowledge of Zero Waste principles with clients who want to reap the benefits of efficiency and stewardship.

Thank you for visiting SJMConsults, hope to meet with you soon!

B Corp at Beau's

As the closest of the BCorp breweries to my house (a swift 6 hrs), I was excited to speak with the "Not-so-Corporate Communications & Media Relations" coordinator Jen Beauchesne about Beau's efforts and dive into what has gained the reputation as a progressive environmental and social leader in the industry.

I’m a customer that just came in for a tour, “What is B Corp?” and “Why did you choose to become involved?”
A B-Corp is a Benefit Corporation, meaning a business that chooses to act as a force for good in the world. As a Certified B-Corporation, Beau’s meets higher standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability. We chose to become a B Corp for a number of reasons – to set an achievable example for other businesses, to give our customers the assurance of a third-party endorsement of our commitment to social good and the environment, and to help us build a roadmap for sustainable growth as a brewery.

As the B Corp Certification is …

ONTARIEAU - Voluntary Bottle Return and Reuse Program

As part of my efforts to find the most progressive solutions to our waste problems, I've been visiting innovators to learn how they've identified opportunities to replace waste.

Yesterday, I was honored for the opportunity to meet and speak with Thomas Plewman of Deluge Water Inc about their brand ONTARIEAU. Thomas and business partner Adam Kagan created ONTARIEAU, the only brand of sparkling natural spring water with a voluntary bottle reuse program in Canada.

Plewman explained that his restaurant clients prefer the bottle reuse program, “Owners and managers like their restaurants to have a lighter environmental impact, and this product not only meets that requirement but is also stylish and a high-quality water”.

The process is pretty simple, first restaurants and cafes use and then save the bottles in the provided boxes or reusable crates.

These bottles are then collected by Plewman or his staff when full bottles are delivered. The bottles are then cleaned and refilled wit…

TRUE Zero Waste Certification

GBCI’s TRUE Zero Waste certification program is used by facilities to define, pursue and achieve their Zero Waste goals, cutting their carbon footprint, supporting public health and reducing operational costs.

The certification goes beyond diversion numbers and focuses on the upstream policies and practices that make Zero Waste successful in any organization and beyond. TRUE certified spaces are environmentally responsible, more resource efficient and help turn waste into savings and additional income streams.
