Successful sustainability programs must be guided by thorough and actionable strategies. However, many companies find it challenging to formulate a strategy that incorporates the distinct perspectives of multiple departments and stakeholders. In the quest for custom-fit sustainability strategies, companies look to Summit’s Sustainability Exchange for leadership and guidance.
Sustainability Exchange: Your Strategy Session
The Sustainability Exchange is a structured, collaborative program for devising your organization’s sustainability strategy. During a Sustainability Exchange, we work with key stakeholders in your organization to assess your current position, determine a cohesive vision for the future and conduct a gap analysis. The outcome of this process is a Sustainability Roadmap, a documented sustainability strategy with specific and actionable goals.
The Sustainability Exchange involves a multi-day workshop to engage all relevant business leaders at your organization in a discussion about sustainability. In real-time during the workshop, our proprietary GreenProfiler tool systematically captures discussion feedback across five core dimensions: social, regulatory, competition, operations, and communications.
Summit Energy combines information gained from the Sustainability Exchange and Green Profiler with our knowledge of the marketplace to build a Sustainability Roadmap. The Sustainability Roadmap details a sustainability strategy for your organization, which includes customized recommendations and action items. For example, your Sustainability Roadmap may contain recommendations on the following:
- Corporate sustainability organizational structure
- Specific reduction targets
- Key performance metrics to track, such as greenhouse gas emissions
- Life-cycle analysis (LCA) initiatives
- Energy efficiency projects
- Renewable energy investments
- Energy sustainability techniques
- Carbon trading strategies
- Corporate social responsibility initiatives
Once your organization has completed a Sustainability Exchange and received recommendations in a Sustainability Roadmap, you may need guidance executing identified projects and goals. Summit Energy’s sustainability experts have the experience and knowledge to help you successfully act upon and accomplish your objectives.
