Putting the Sustainability Pieces in Place
The sustainability audit is only a first step—a benchmark…a starting line. You need a plan to take you to the finish line first!
THEN What We Can Do for You?
We will explain the pros and cons of all your options and help you develop a multi-phased implementation plan. Too many companies make knee-jerk decisions to invest in technology or make fundamental changes in operations that prove to be expensive or even fatal mistakes.
Building positive momentum is important so we’ll identify and help you address the “low hanging fruit”—those sustainability-driven changes that can offer the biggest impact and best financial pay-off in the shortest period of time. These opportunities are not always apparent and the solutions are not always the obvious ones.
Infinite Future also will keep you focused on the longer term. As savings are realized and technology creates new possibilities, we will help you plan the second and third generation projects that will keep you on the leading edge of energy use reduction and cost saving.
New technologies and best practices are emerging all the time. Do you have the time and resources to keep up so that you can take advantage of them? We do.
Incentives and Certifications
Infinite Future stays abreast of incentive programs (e.g., tax credits) and environmental certification programs (e.g., Green Globe, Stamped Sustainable, and Green Supply Chain). We’ll steer you in the right direction on both fronts.
There are many sustainability certification programs to choose from. We’ll advise you on which ones have the most impact and credibility. Don’t waste your time and resources trying to qualify for a discredited or worthless certification!
Measuring your Progress
You’re probably accountable to owners and investors who will insist that you document and measure the impact of your sustainability program. Hard data also should be incorporated into your marketing messages and used to document compliance with laws, regulations, or certification programs. Infinite Future can provide the quantification and valuation strategies that help you make your case in all of these areas.
Promote your Efforts, Build your Image
If you aren’t communicating your work, then you aren’t doing any work.
It’s critical to communicate your sustainability principles and record. The public expects it. But do you know how to do this so that it rings true with the general public, policy makers and informed environmentalists? If your message sounds contrived and self-serving your sustainability communication efforts not only will fall flat but could very well backfire!
Infinite Future lives in the sustainability world; we speak the language and can help you do the same.
