Sustainability and climate change issues are complex and challenging concepts that increasingly can benefit from insightful, innovative, and engaging methods of communications. Our goal is to share our knowledge to guide partners and collaborate to raise awareness of the great challenges we face today. 

We do this to ensure that we trend towards environmental, economic, and social sustainability by delivering insights and messaging that is accurate, professional, and complete.

In partnership with people, businesses, not for profits, communities, cities, and others, the goal of our integrated arts initiatives is to help bring sustainability into the mindsets of our friends and neighbors through arts projects - e.g. street art, theatrical events, in parallel with awareness campaigns, and real examples of sustainable living.

Environmental issues have consequences beyond just changes in the weather: they increasingly affect our economy and the way we live our lives. Now, more than ever, we need immersive ways to demonstrate how individuals can play a major role in protecting the planet.

We believe that by making local and global environmental issues more individually relevant, people can be empowered to make a big difference.


Drones for Good

SustainaDrone is an innovative solutions suite of technologies and services, designed to collect valuable data to support project management activities and to enhance creative storytelling around client sustainability initiatives. From breathtaking aerial footage to thermal and infrared mapping, our fleet of drones is designed for variable landscapes, allowing us to discover more about the environments we know and unearth valuable information about the places we’re trying to understand.

Creative Storytelling: Applying decades of experience working in mainstream film & tv, we pair traditional photography and video production with drone-based and virtual reality media to produce rich content for broad distribution.

Industrial Applications: Utilize our fleet of drones for small or large-scale land areas. We offer high-resolution orthomosaic 2D and 3D maps. We apply a variety of camera sensors and filters such as Near Infrared (NIR), Normal Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI), and thermal imaging.

These services have been developed with one thing in mind: to empower those who choose to embark on sustainability initiatives with the tools and knowledge to achieve their highest goals.
