Idea is a man’s priceless possession. Inspiration serves as timeless reference. Dream is a life goal worth fighting for. Passion, dedication and integrity are irreplaceable components for a fleet to sail across treacherous sea to reach the final destination. It was started from a humble idea from the founders when they met up in a hotel in Jember and driven by vision of a future in which human kind shall live in harmoniously with nature. Fueled by determination to give contribution towards a sustainable life style, the role as certification body was embraced and enforced to play its part in achieving a society as such pictured in the vision, then in the last of December 2007, Sustainable Development Services, hereinafter called SDS was born.
