Soldrevet’s Ethics Statement

“In a way, when you say «sustainable development» [at Soldrevet] could also mean,
“for a person. Personal sustainable development.” It’s the same idea.”

What does sustainable mean to you?
Project Drawdown publishes an approachable list of solutions, which I use often. The United Nations publishes its own list, which I use less. When you get in touch, please let me know how you want your work to contribute to sustainable development.

What sustainable means to Soldrevet
Sustainable is a squishy word that can mean many things. As I wrestle with what it means to me, I will share my rolling definition with you. I’m rather proud of this journey. Take a step of the journey with me. Read Soldrevet’s Ethics Statement. Let me know, does it speak to you?, have I got something wrong? do you have a suggestion for me to consider? I do care and I will respond.

Are you compatible with Soldrevet?
Sustainable development uses a philosophy that recognizes we can work together to benefit the common good. Running from fears is unsustainable, as is willful running towards disaster. Blaming the past is unsustainable, as is hunting for a silver bullet. Building perspectives that look further in the future and farther off into the horizon is sustainable. Recognizing joy and celebrating success is sustainable.

Science and development are human endeavours. Our lives and histories are inherently bound to the society and science we create. I am a part of the work I produce, just as it is a part of me. And you are a part of your work.

Through Soldrevet, I help you realize your goals for sustainable development. Whether you’re a company needing research help, a researcher wanting help with graphics for scientific presentation, or a person looking for guidance, Soldrevet can help.

What does Soldrevet mean?
Soldrevet is compound Norwegian word that I discovered when I first moved to Norway in 2015. The word is composed of sol, meaning “sun”, and drevet, meaning “-powered” or “-driven”. (Hear pronunciation from Google Translate.) The word is missing from the official Norwegian lexicon, but does exist in Det Norske Akademis Ordbok.
