Sustainability and ROI

Sustainability and ROI

28th August 2021

There is no doubt that corporate environmental responsibility is essential for the future. But is it more than necessary? Is sustainability important to business success?

Today, business, and environmental sustainability are closely linked. Implementing a sustainability framework is not limited to improving the environment. It also creates business value through various aspects and performance metrics, including increased customer loyalty, greater engagement for healthier and happier employees, and rewards, higher business valuation for shareholders and stakeholders. To help companies successfully integrate sustainability into their business strategies, we work with a ready reckoner sustainability process model that allows companies to easily monitor, measure and manage sustainability performance data.

The need for a sustainable process-based approach

Using a sustainability process framework creates a competitive advantage with the ability to use analytics to optimize efficiency and productivity. Focus on key metrics to continuously measure and classify remotely monitored data. Our processes and methods provide detailed information on energy, air quality, water consumption and waste monitoring. The framework also provides feedback to assess the impact of changes in sustainability policy.

Sustainability and feasibility assessment

Some approaches to sustainability have focused on scorecards that provide a qualitative assessment of performance in which a company’s vision, culture, risk and strategy play a key role. Additionally, many legacy sustainability scorecards are often static in nature and measure progress only at specific times.

Why focus on environmental sustainability?

Environmental sustainability is an aspect of sustainability and a concept that also applies to economic and social practices. Environmental sustainability is often the centre of attention, as the environment is the foundation of life on Earth and is now of paramount importance to many people around the world. It promotes the responsible use of ecological resources and minimizes the impact of human behaviour on the environment.

Recent wildfires in Australia and California show that costly climate change is affecting our environment. This can lead to rising sea levels and disruption of the food supply.

How can an organization prepare for climate change if it is a major risk factor for investors?

The answer is to develop a comprehensive sustainability program.

What is corporate sustainability with respect to environmental sustainability?

Corporate Sustainability (or Organizational / Corporate Sustainability) includes all aspects of sustainability, including environmental sustainability in the context of a company. It recognizes the need for a business to be profitable, while encouraging the incorporation of all aspects of sustainability into a company’s core activities. Organizational sustainability includes:

Environmental Sustainability:
Reducing the Environmental Impact of Corporate Activities
Social Sustainability:
Social Systems Acting to Maintain and Improve Relationships
Economy Sustainability:
Developing in a Sustainable Way by Protecting Both Social and Environmental Factors

Relationship between energy consumption and environmental sustainability

Energy is associated with fossil fuels, the main source of electricity and energy for vehicles. So, it’s probably the most important part of sustainability. Burning fossil fuels releases carbon dioxide (CO2), which contributes significantly to increasing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Second, greenhouse gases are the main cause of climate change. (According to climate data from the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and NASA, the decade to 2019 is the hottest time in recorded history.) Reducing energy use is reducing greenhouse gas emissions. greenhouse effect, leading to proportional reduction. Therefore, efforts to reduce energy consumption play an important role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improving air quality. The relative production of GHG is proportional to the carbon/hydrogen ratio in the composition of fossil fuels. During the combustion of fossil fuels, the amount of CO2 released is directly related to the composition of the carbon mixture in the fuel.

Are you wondering if your investment in sustainability will be successful? Here’s how to measure the ROI of a sustainable technology-based solution:

Our goal is to provide a framework by using technology and state of the art processes to improve sustainability initiatives and energy efficiency. It allows companies to collect energy data on the environment and building assets. Knowing when, where and how energy is consumed is an effective approach to energy efficiency, as only process changes can affect energy consumption and costs. The initiative to improve sustainability can bring tremendous value to the business. A company’s value is based on low operating costs, low risk profile and higher market multiples obtained at market valuation, also helping to provide value to the private sector. Additionally, a data-driven process and framework creates analytical capabilities that can give your organization a competitive advantage.
