Quick Win Project Identification:
“Quick Win” projects are a great way to get the ball rolling for newer sustainability initiatives. Finding the right ones is not always easy. We help you find great low or no cost starter projects that will engage and inspire. Our Quick Win tool will help you identify what you have already done and all the projects that you might want to do next. We will then work with you to prioritize up to fifteen of those potential projects. The end product? A list of sustainability projects you’ve completed and a list of the best projects to work on over the next 1-2 years to ensure continued progress.
Build Your Sustainability Strategy:
Identifying your organization's environmental, social, and economic impacts and risks is the first step towards a sustainability strategy. We provide you with an assessment tool and help you see how your activities intersect with key sustainability issues. Our online tool then facilitates a high-level materiality assessment to prioritize organizational sustainability issues. From there, you can set goals and find the right projects to manage your risks and improve you impacts.
Get baseline data on 3 prioritized sustainability issues, then set goals, identify project opportunities, and create a plan and budget for your top 3 sustainability issues. You will soon be steps closer to a more strategic focus on sustainability!
Organizational policies are the cornerstones of institutionalizing sustainability. Sustainability topics span a wide range of environmental, social, and governance issues. Often times, your customers want to see that you have certain policies in place. We help you to arrive at a policy that is right for your level of commitment, conforms to your existing systems, and is straightforward to implement.
