Environmental Social Governance

environmental earth and green leaves

A&D solutions environmental social governance and sustainability practice is based on
ten citizen engagement and sustainability criteria.

The Founder identified these criteria as part of the thesis requirements for the degree of Masters of Environmental Studies presented to the University of Waterloo in 2010. We firmly believe that these criteria are now more necessary than ever to serve as metrics for leveraging climate change mitigation and adaptation. The indicators are customized and adapted to fit project goals and effectively measure the impact and results.

Innovative Solutions to Chronic Problems

California Unhoused Population - A Crisis We Must Solve

It’s no secret that California is home to the highest rate of homelessness in the United States.
Los Angeles is second only to New York City in terms of the number of people living on the
streets. What’s more, California is much larger than New York, so the scope of the problem is
daunting.
The homeless crisis has been a growing issue in California in recent years. High cost of living
and a lack of job opportunities have made it difficult for many to find stable housing. The
pandemic has only exacerbated this problem, with more people being unable to pay rent or
mortgages.
What can be done to help?
At A&D Solutions, we have conducted extensive research on successful projects from around
the world and have developed an innovative approach to design, outreach, and implementation.
