Establish a Baseline
EG believes that progress cannot be measured without first establishing a baseline. Sustainability Performance Management requires the establishment of a baseline footprint and metrics that can be used to measure the outcomes of proposed/enacted initiatives.
Develop a Strategy
EG has designed a set of sustainability key performance indicators (KPI’s), based on the United Nation’s Urban Environmental Accords, which measure energy use, waste reduction, urban design, urban nature, transportation, environmental health, and water use. Since each client’s situation is different, this standard set of KPI’s can be tailored to fit each client’s unique requirements.
Implement the Plan
EG believes the value of any sustainability strategy can only be measured by its capacity to be implemented. EG believes that outreach, education, and getting people involved in sustainability efforts is the best way to ensure continual progress in conserving energy and reducing our impact on the environment. EG uses a unique combination of the following strategies top spur participation in our clients’ sustainability initiatives:
- Social media
- Friendly Competition
Once a sustainable action plan is set in place, measuring the performance of strategic initiatives is critical to ensure the integrity of the capital investment and to encourage continuous improvement.
