Sophic Pursuits, Inc. is a small boutique firm that specializes in environmental and safety regulatory compliance with a focus on sustainability. Additionally, the firm produces science, regulatory and sustainability education materials for a wide variety of learning environments. These are even more important as we enter this next decade where we are likely to see fundamental changes in the energy and education sectors.
While it may seem that these are two diverging interests - they are not. Environmental and safety compliance based upon the underlying science behind the observed phenomena and/or chemical processes employed. From a compliance perspective, it is necessary to understand the underlying goal of the regulation, generally to protect workers and the environment. And, it is important to communicate science such that everyone can access it. It is essential that today's and tomorrow's workforce have an understanding of the science and the application of the technologies used to facilitate the overall betterment of the workplace and communities. Thus, Sophic Pursuits is working to bring practical solutions to the workplace while developing educational materials for individuals who are employed today and those who may be employed in these businesses in the near future.
