Energy Savings in Your Organization

Savings in Energy and water

Module 5 discusses the many benefits flowing from the transition to a clean energy future and goes on to present ways for your organization to benefit from this transition.

 

Decarbonization

The Module describes the process of decarbonization taking place as energy grids transition to renewable energy sources, including solar, wind, and hydro generation. Clean energy now provides significantly more jobs than the fossil fuel industry, with wages 25% higher than national averages and locations diversified into all but 2 of the nation’s 3,007 counties.

 

Energy Efficiency

Commercial buildings and industrial uses account for approximately 42% of energy usage in the U.S. and approximately 30% of that energy is wasted.

Changing to more efficient energy technologies and conservation-oriented employee behavior on the job and at home can cut energy use by 10% to 30%, producing significant cost savings and many other benefits to organizations and society. The Module describes an Energy Practice Hierarchy for evaluating most effective strategies.

Module 6 explores how the Circular Economy, featuring reuse, refurbishing, and recycling, differs from the take, make, waste Linear Economy.

 

Circular Economy Definition

The Circular Economy is defined as a systematic approach to economic Development that is regenerative by design and aims to decouple growth from consumption of finite resources. It aims to keep products in use for as long as possible, maintaining value at the best possible level of quality by remanufacturing, reselling, or refurbishing.

 

Drivers of the Circular Economy

Drivers of the Circular Economy include: expansion of waste, depletion of raw materials and natural resources, adverse effects on health and the environment from chemical and other forms of pollution, and stakeholder demand.

Emergence of the Circular Economy

It is estimated that between 8% and 10% of the U.S. economy has embraced circularity. The Module describes how the principles of circularity can be applied in organizations to: reduce single use plastics; extend product life through repair and remanufacturing; apply new standards and tools; and respond to new policy initiatives.

The Module presents industry experts stating that ‘it is going to take 4 Earths to support our current levels of consumption’ and asking: ‘can we afford to ignore the value embedded in our waste?’ The Module concludes with a Workbook exercise for recognizing circular economy opportunities in your organization.

Employee health and wellness is an important aspect of Sustainability Transformation.

 

Importance of Employee Health and Wellness

Increasingly, employees are looking for purpose driven work and a better work/life balance, with many workers rethinking where, how, and for whom they work, in order to make lifestyle choices that pursue a state of optimal health and well-being. Health and wellness involve physical, emotional, mental, social, environmental, and spiritual dimensions.

 

Investing in Employee Health and Wellness

The Module describes studies showing that happy and healthy workers are more satisfied with their work lives and more productive. For every $1.00 invested in health and wellness programs, organizations receive back $1.50 to $3.00 back on average in lower health care costs and higher retention rates.

 

 

Addressing Employee Burn Out by Building a Positive Organizational Culture

The pandemic has served to increase other types of employee stress that leads to burn out. The Module presents studies showing that employees want a positive organizational culture and strong relations with empathetic supervisors who provide positive feedback and express gratitude.

“Climate Equity means working for and implementing climate solutions that…place the needs and voices of the most affected front and center.”

Industry Expert Perspective

HubSpot Video

 

Disproportionate Climate Impacts

Heat waves, air pollution, natural disasters, and toxic drinking water all disproportionately affect lower income, redlined, and Native American communities, leading to significantly higher rates of asthma and other health problems.

 

Climate Equity Makes Good Business Sense

In addition to being the right path to follow, Climate Equity also makes good business sense because more than 8 in 10 consumers want the businesses they patronize to tackle climate change and social inequity. Likewise, investors increasingly want to invest in businesses that demonstrate a high level of performance in relation to environmental and social issues.

 

Engaging with Climate Equity

The Module provides a Workbook exercise to assist you and your organization to assess your location in relation to Climate Equity. Are you ‘climate curious,’ ‘climate committed,’ or ‘climate courageous?’

The Module concludes by aiding you to incorporate Climate Equity in your Sustainability Transformation Roadmap, offering suggestions that have worked with other organizations, including: 

  • Instituting diversity, inclusion, and equity policies.
  • Engaging the families of your employees in climate actions.
  • Establishing incentives for employee climate engagement.
  • Encouraging your banks and investment managers to divest from fossil fuels.
  • Advocating that your suppliers not do business with major polluters.
  • Buying locally produced products and services.
  • Supporting climate change organizations and climate positive government policies.
