Benefits of Sustainability

Sustainable practices are imperative in this competitive and litigious business environ- ment. Sustainametrics identifies the primary business drivers for adopting sustainability including:


Cost Savings: The application of Reduce, Reuse, Recycle considerations drive reductions in material, transportation, manufacturing, and disposal costs. We focus on applying Lean concepts to identify and reduce waste throughout the enterprise.

Energy Efficiency: Energy audits and carbon foot printing can identify the easy to implement savings that can be derived by such actions as lighting conversion to CFL’s or LED’s, weatherization, retrofits, Energy Star equipment purchases, employee carpooling, less packaging, supplier proximity, greener information technologies, business travel reduction using virtual meeting technology, and renewable energy generation and purchasing.

Risk Avoidance:
Compliance with statutory regulations is the first step to avoiding penalties, negative press and litigation. Anticipating and developing strategies for impending legislation and regulations is a way to avoid costs and gain advantage over competition.

Revenue Enhancement: A growing customer preference for sustainable products and services represents opportunities for innovation and market share growth.

Product and Service Differentiation:
Design for sustainability methods allows companies to realize cost savings and differentiate products and services to satisfy customer expectations for minimizing environmental impact.

Supply Chain Optimization: Collaborating with suppliers on green initiatives helps mitigate the overall regulatory risk, increase control on supply chains, generate cost reduction opportunities, and enhance responsiveness to market changes.

Transport Costs Optimization: Substantial benefits are derived from optimizing transportation logistics, including energy use during tendering and dispatching loads.

Materials Risk Mitigation: Reductions in energy use and raw material consumption bring costs down and assure a higher resiliency to energy and raw material price volatility.
