Why is sustainability important? Simply stated; the future depends on it.
Sustainability is a key consideration for any business, whether they are small or large, not only to ensure you are environmentally conscious but by measuring these practises you have the potential to save both time and money.
- Carbon Footprint
- Energy Consumption
- Product Recycling Rate
- Saving Levels due to conservation and improvement efforts
- Supplier Environmental Sustainability Index
- Supply Chain Miles
- Water Footprint
- Waste Reduction Rate
- Waste Recycling Rate
For example, by measuring Supply Chain Miles, it provides a powerful indicator of how far your product is travelling before reaching its destination. By measuring this KPI it can become apparent that goods are travelling large distances before reaching their destination, incurring heavy costs along the way. This KPI then may make an influence on your choice of suppliers, not just to reduce carbon footprint along the way but possibly even costs too.
