Trust, fact, accuracy.

Veritatis’ core principal is efficient action based on effective use of resources, namely the ‘human resource’ to maximize shareholder value with minimal natural resource impact.

We humans always look for more, heavenward, imagining ourselves as Icarus soaring freely against a magnificent blue sky.

As children we are taught to look up first to our parents, teachers, service men and then our heroes.

Humans look up to receive nutrition, money, encouragement and later jet streams, tall buildings, space stations, and the stars.

We rarely look down. Rarely do we look at people, at the water we drink and swim, at the air we breathe or consider the efficiency in how we consume natural resources or the efficiency by which we produce things.

It’s perhaps against our human nature to be sustainable, why? Perhaps, simply we are conditioned to look up instead of down, to consume without consideration, and to assume abundant supply.

These matters are the nexus of Veritatis Advisors, said Don Macdonald during a recent speech on energy management

Q: What is Veritatis Advisors?
From the Latin word, it means “Truth.”

Veritatis Advisors helps organizations help themselves by uncovering the operational truth. Clients seek our advice because frankly, they can get lost. Costs are too high, risks too great, processes wasteful, confronting a new requirement, or simply short staffed. They often describe their situation as “being too close to the forest to see the trees” and this is where we help them. Veritatis excels at navigating the complex and changing environment for C Suite, boards of directors, and business unit leaders across multi-cultural environments.

Q: What makes Veritatis Advisors unique?
We listen, focus, and then act.

We advise only in three areas of risk management: Sustainability & Risk; Climate & Energy; Environment, Health & Safety

Q: What are Veritatis’ areas of Operational Expertise?

-Maturity mapping, program integration, performance coaching
-Regulatory Advisory, EHS
-Product Claim and Recycle Content Verifications
-Energy Management, DOE, Better Plants/Better Buildings, ASHRAE, and IPMVP

Don, an avid open water marathon swimmer, having qualified to swim the English Channel, circumnavigated Manhattan island, and completed numerous other grand swims; believes ECG screening of all physically active and especially young persons is justified, cost-effective and compelling. There are some things you cannot place an economic value on and a child’s life is one of them. Equally important is the education of adults as role models. The importance of being proactively screened cannot be understated, 50 percent of cases have no prior symptoms.

Using again his avid open water marathon swimming as a vehicle to discuss challenges, success and failure, Don raises awareness for local communities implementing student emotional & resilience programming. The Barrington 220 Educational Foundation is a not-for-profit to acquire and distribute resources in support of Barrington Community School District 220 for programs and projects aimed at enhancing, enriching and supplementing learning opportunities for students, staff and community. Don’s efforts have helped promote awareness to generate more than $2 million in grant categories: Project — a one-time award for an effort that enhances learning opportunities; Projects for Innovation and Enhancement (PIE) — allows teachers and staff to introduce innovative programs that benefit students; Helping Hand — when other funding sources are limited; Memorial — a grant that honors the memory of a family or community member.
