Fifteen years ago, Sustainable Solutions emerged from coastal Vancouver, one of North America's densest, most ethnically diverse and exciting cities where residents can snow ski in the morning, waterski in the afternoon and finish off the day in a vibrant nightlife. This kind of excitement creates an exacting clientele. When the best is plentiful, you don’t have to settle for less. Developers are required to design for not just beauty but for exacting functionality. Businesses that have cut their teeth in this uber competitive, design-centric environment are worth watching!  

While Sustainable Solutions’ products and values may have developed in the West, they are now showcased all across North America in projects such as Rem Koolhaas in Manhattan, Ritz Carltons in Tysons Corner, DC and Amelia Island, FLA or the multitude of Tridel projects across Ontario.  

Sustainable Solutions offers a brand portfolio that delivers on both design and performance while offering exceptional and innovative end-to-end service. Designers, developers and engineers are specifying Caroma North America, fluid and SSI products into thousands of hospitality, government and mid- to high-end and luxury condominiums. Demand is continuing to grow exponentially as Sustainable Solutions’ commitment to adaptability, sustainability and a passion for service excellence remains at the forefront of the company values.

Sustainable Solutions is the high-growth plumbing fixture manufacturer that developers, designers and builders are talking about.
