We approach the possibilities and problems of sustainability using Culture. Here’s a quick video showing how we think. We take a limited number of engagements each year. And we crush them because we love them. Contact us at jrooks [at] thesoapgroup.com or call 207 712 7498.
SOAP stands for Sustainable Organization Advocacy Partners. We were founded in 2003 by John Rooks (learn more).
Things we’ve done using this approach:
Interface Carpet – Eighteen-month research project exploring global perceptions of sustainability of 4,000 employees at 8 factories in 6 countries, followed by the design and development of an employee engagement platform. Throughout this project we produced a series of short documentary films called I Am Mission Zero.
VANS – Four-month engagement to work with employees to build a ground-up model of sustainability, secured commitment from senior staff. A self-defined “irreverent culture,” any approach required authenticity.
Clif Bar & Company – Helped architect a “self-replicating” employee volunteer program in concert with Annie’s, Eileen Fischer, Timberland, Seventh Generation and other amazing companies.
The World Bank – Branding and design for a leadership education program for developing communities.
Baxter Brewing – Sustainability Consulting including waste strategy reductions and employee engagement.
NELMA – Design and management of a emerging architect design competition integrating sustainable design elements into their projects.
