One of the most challenging things for a small business to do when it comes to sustainability is to clearly understand where you stand in comparison to best practices.
Many small businesses that I’ve worked with run into this challenge with their sustainability programs. They may upgrade to LEDs and set up a recycling program, but then not do much more than that. They may not have the time or the expertise to know how to fully develop and truly integrate their sustainability practices.
A comprehensive sustainability assessment for your business can help you to identify opportunities so that you can establish a solid foundation for sustainability in your business.
The sustainability assessment that I offer includes best practices as identified by two premiere sustainability frameworks, the California Green Business Program and the B Impact Assessment, two frameworks that I’ve worked with really closely over the years. However, because each of these robust frameworks still has its limitations, I include best practices from other sources as well, so that the result is one of the most thorough sustainability assessments that you can do for your business.
The assessment includes a report with specific recommendations, including clearly identified short-term, medium-term, and long-term initiatives, to help you to develop and grow your sustainability program more effectively and efficiently.
