We use a performance assessment approach that looks at your high value areas utilizing measures that could help the enterprise become eligible for certifications and or labeling designations that attest to sustainability performance of the organization. Where there exist national or international standards, indicators, or certification criteria, we utilize those so we can benchmark progress and prepare the enterprise to climb to the highest performance levels.

Relevant standards, indicators, or labeling criteria for specific industries or functions are identified and applied in consultation with leaders of the organization. LEED (green building standards/certification), Global Reporting Initiative (a global corporate sustainability reporting scheme), STARS (higher education standards), Fair Trade, Green Press Initiative (printing and publishing), ISO 14000 (environmental management), ISO 26000 (social responsibility), and so forth are reviewed for possible application to the functions and mission of the enterprise.
