Let’s talk about how to make important reductions in carbon emissions while saving significant amounts of cash.
Last month Greenbiz’s John Davies profiled Diversey, Inc.’s portfolio management approach to enabling internal sustainability initiatives. Davies explained that the approach “focused on achieving significant greenhouse gas reductions coupled with an attractive return on investment.”
He reported the program “has delivered an impressive ROI by providing a new perspective on old issues, such as energy efficiency. One year after establishing its initial goals, the company tripled its emissions reduction commitment to 25 percent, using the same 2003 baseline and timeframe ending in 2013. At the same time, it was able to reduce its investment from $19 million to $14 million…” Moreover, the tripled emissions reduction will come while producing $32 million in cumulative cash savings.
On Tuesday, April 12 at 2 pm ET (11 am PT) the Green Innovators in Business Network will host a “Growing GIBN Conversation” with Jeramy Lemieux, Diversey’s EHS Manager. Jeramy will join us to continue the discussion started by Davies’ article and answer questions about Diversey’s efforts and portfolio approach.
