What We Do

Scout is about seeing possibility and leading the market where others fear to go. We specialize in delivering innovative and meaningful programs that engage people to achieve measurable outcomes.

As Summerhill Impact, we pioneered return-to-retail programs such as Mow Down Pollution and Keep Cool. These initiatives demonstrated the value of using a retail channel to engage millions of Canadians on issues ranging from energy and water efficiency to air quality and environmental health.

We were the first organization to design and deliver national public engagement programs such as Retire Your Ride, which brought together private, public and not-for profit partners. Today, we manage a range of voluntary stewardship programs on behalf of industry associations and obligated stewards in compliance with provincial and national regulations.

Scout is more focused than ever on finding market based solutions to systemic problems such as managing metal waste in northern and remote communities, stewarding toxic substances like mercury, and continuing to focus on engaging the public on air quality.

We bring our passion and our expertise together to provide our clients with outstanding service in:

  1. Product Stewardship Services
  2. Public Engagement Programs on Climate, Air Quality and Environmental Health
  3. Sustainability Consulting Services
