Resilience is the capacity of an individual, group, community, or system to prepare for change and disruption, recover from stresses and pressures, and adapt and grow from the experience. Sustainability involves responsibly utilizing or harvesting resources so as not to permanently damage or deplete them.
SRF embraces resilience and sustainability as integral elements of the services we offer and help our clients develop environmentally and economically responsible, context-sensitive projects and systems within their organizations. We embed resilience and sustainability within our own corporate culture by giving back to our communities, protecting the environment through best practices, and advocating for positive change.
