“One Magic Number to Sum Up All Your Resource Inputs”
The presentation will focus on how Energy Points enables a one-to-one comparison of all resources, including electricity, fuel, materials, water and transportation, by converting all domains into energy. This enables a direct comparison of resource usage across domains with one number. With Energy Points, businesses can now make direct comparisons of sustainability projects that were previously impossible, such as solar panels versus water management or natural gas usage.
Energy Points factors in critical indicators, such as regional energy mix (e.g., coal, natural gas, renewables, etc.), resource location, life cycle analysis, scarcity and stress to generate the true value of consumed natural resources. Organizations can track and compare activities across multiple locations and resource domains from both a financial and environmental perspective. The company is currently used by Fortune 500 companies and educational institutions such as Harvard University for building portfolio management, integrated financial and environmental resource analytics and reporting, supply chain sustainability scoring and more.
The 2012 New Metrics of Sustainable Business Conference presents a two-day, in-depth discussion with some of sustainability's top strategists, examining leading-edge work that is expanding the way business creates, quantifies and manages the value it delivers through the metrics it adopts.
