About US

SaSAA is a 501(c)(6) empowered to provide quick, accurate and up to date Open Environmental Data innovations. Through membership and sponsorship, we fund a range of local renewable energy and environmental sustainability goals and initiatives for businesses. We have partnered with the GCEOA which is a global organization dedicated to the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development Goals. Together, SaSAA and GCEOA share a primary focus on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals adopted by the United Nations and its Sponsor states as unifying global development priorities for the next 12 years. SaSAA champions deliberate use of energy resources and the revitalization of abandoned land resources in the region. We believe that investing in the redevelopment of the region reinforces the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development Goals while serving the people these goals are meant to impact.

SaSAA believes that without a healthy environment, there is no business. A robust local economy thrives with the use of renewable energy resources where our land, water, and air are free of pollution. We have the tools and solutions that can responsibly innovate the development of local economies. In partnership with other like-minded organizations, SaSAA has partnered with Envirosite Corporation, a leading environmental data provider, to offer Open Environmental Data platforms. Our goal is to provide transparency to local environmental activities and incidents by sharing and reporting data. The Open Environmental Data Platform provides up-to-date environmental risk data in a comprehensive, accurate and understandable format.


SaSAA’s Founder and Chairman, James M. Donovan, is an entrepreneur focused on impact investing with a lifetime dedication to redefining and delivering environmental, social and governance solutions. Mr. Donovan received the United Nations Office for South-South Cooperation Visionary Award in 2014. He was also assigned to be the team lead for the United Nations Environment Program’s Global Environment Outlook 6 Data Fabric Task Force, which aims to design and develop the Big Data processes and framework that could be expanded to cover all of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
