Stanford Environmental Consulting


Stanford Students Environmental Consulting (SSEC) is a student-run organization with the goal of promoting sustainable practices that emphasize environmental, financial and social performance. We provide consulting services for non-profits, government agencies, and companies working with or interested in adopting sustainable practices.

SSEC is a group of dedicated, business and environmentally focused students at Stanford University. We provide consulting services to help organizations address their most challenging environmental problems. In addition to finding answers to tough problems, we also aim to raise awareness for environmental issues and identify practical, sustainable opportunities for the business sector. Lastly, we aspire to foster learning and growth of our members, allowing them to develop and expand their professional skills related to, but certainly not limited to business, finance, marketing, legal and environmental stewardship.

Our members have a diverse range of backgrounds, including engineering, management science, economics and public policy. Leveraging this diversity helps SSEC provide practical, multifaceted sustainable solutions to tough problems. We also connect to a strong community of advisors, including notable professors from the Stanford University research community, venture capitalists, and business school members. Past members of SSEC have gone on to work at top tier management consulting firms, environmental consulting firms, environmental NGOs, energy companies and investment banks.
