For Sustainability Executives:
There is a need for executives to demonstrate accountability and provide leadership in their organization. A best practice is to implement an accurate and comprehensive performance measurement, management and benchmarking process that links activities to bottom-line results. The objective of integrating benchmarking into the strategic planning process is that it provides the important fact-based information about where an organization is today and then ultimately, where they need to be to meet their target goals. In addition to the benchmarking results, the advantages of going through this process is that is helps organizations identify their key data sources available today and understand where there are gaps.
We work with the executives responsible who are focused on evaluating and employing sustainable business practices. By leveraging our established benchmarking framework, we guide organizations surrounding the right type of data to pull and bring them through our comprehensive benchmarking process that results in true 'apples-to-apples' comparisons. The results allow them to see how they are performing; provides the ability to link sustainability activities to results; optimize and compare operational efficiencies; and justify/defend current and future investments.
As an unbiased resource, we work with vendors and create custom research, case studies and white papers that can be leveraged in their communications with internal and external stakeholders through market positioning / collateral.
