SCS Global Services

As a sustainably-driven benefit corporation, SCS works across the natural resource, product manufacturing, green building, food and agriculture, and energy industry sectors to develop leadership standards and to provide third-party auditing and certification services. This cross-disciplinary work has given us unique insights into the challenges faced by companies in achieving their sustainability goals, as well as the latest innovations in operations and technology to overcome these challenges.

We are a chartered benefit corporation based in Emeryville, California, operating on six continents with a network of subsidiaries, regional representatives, sales offices, auditors, and testing labs. “SCS” stands for Scientific Certification Systems, the name under which we are incorporated, reflecting our commitment to three core principles:

  • the importance of basing decisions on sound science,
  • assuring the veracity of claims,
  • maintaining a holistic, systems-oriented perspective.

Our clients include corporations, government agencies, institutions and NGOs around the world who are working to implement practices and policies that advance the Sustainable Development Goals enumerated by the United Nations. Our clients range in size from major international brands to small, innovative start-ups and mom-and-pop operations. We are proud to work with sustainability leaders across the forestry, fisheries, energy, green building, agriculture, and consumer and business products sectors.
