Scott Design Inc. is committed to creating a positive environmental and social impact by incorporating sustainable design practices into all of our work.

We hope to help advance the understanding of sustainability issues, and we ask all of our employees to engage in conversation with every client and co-vendor about integrating sustainable alternatives in their work.

The Monterey Bay Area Green Business Program is a successful partnership of environmental agencies, utilities, and nonprofit organizations that assist, recognize, and promote businesses and government agencies that volunteer to operate in a more environmentally responsible way. To be certified “green,” participants must be in compliance with all regulations and meet program standards for conserving resources, preventing pollution, and minimizing waste. The program offers motivated businesses and agencies an easy-to-use framework for improving environmental performance.

Scott Design and 37 other Santa Cruz businesses were recognized by the Santa Cruz County Supervisors for going green.

Scott Design is also a member of The Designers Accord and Design Can Change, both dedicated to helping designers promote sustainability practices. You can read more about our environmental commitment and Scott Design’s Designers Accord membership.
