Global Insurance Company Reaches Healthy Goals with Summit’s Energy Management Strategies

Implementing a sustainability strategy across numerous facilities is a challenging process. A health insurance provider struggling with this issue looked to Summit Energy to direct the process and gather all the data necessary to establish a sound sustainability program.

Sustainability Initiatives More Challenging with Geographic Diversity: When a company has a large geographic footprint, implementing a corporate-wide sustainability initiative can be a complex and difficult process. Why? Obtaining clean, accurate energy-usage data from sites all over the world is often a costly and time-consuming undertaking. Developing a strategy for collecting dependable data is critical to building a successful sustainability program.

SITUATION
A company in the health insurance sector wanted to implement a corporate-wide strategy to “go green,” but the sheer number of its sites posed a challenge. The company did not have a handle on its overall energy usage; it lacked visibility into each site’s data and was unaware of what it was spending on energy. Under these circumstances, the company was not in a position to implement an energy procurement plan, let alone a sustainability plan. Summit Energy launched a thorough and systematic process to set the company on the right path to achieve its objectives.

LEADERSHIP
Summit’s first strategy for the company involved implementing a utility bill management program, which ensured that energy usage and spend data would be captured efficiently and accurately. Once data was flowing smoothly into a centralized database, Summit analyzed usage patterns and spend levels to identify key issues, setting the stage for sustainability initiatives.

RESULTS
Summit used the data to build a Sustainability Roadmap, which detailed a sustainability plan for the company. Findings from the Roadmap were shared with the board of directors, employees, shareholders and investors as part of a corporate-wide strategy to establish more environmentally-friendly energy consumption practices. By providing access to dependable energy data, Summit enabled the company to successfully promote and maintain the sustainability program.
