A business approach that creates long-term consumer and employee value by creating a “green” strategy aimed toward the natural environment and taking into consideration every dimension of how a business operates in the social, cultural, and economic environment.
Investments in smart energy efficiency projects can be a powerful way to reduce operating costs, cut greenhouse gas emissions, and improve the reliability of buildings.
However, upfront costs, the capital to pay for equipment, installation and servicing of energy efficiency upgrades can be a major barrier to getting energy efficiency projects done.
Strategic investment decision making should be keenly focused on ROI, balancing cash flow and risk mitigation considerations.
ROI considerations drive sustainability projects, especially net-positive-cash-flow opportunities that contribute to the Triple Bottom Line (TBL or 3BL): social, environmental (or ecological) and financial.
Even organizations with plentiful cash may prefer to spend their capital on their core operations rather than efficiency, one of many reasons to consider innovative net-positive-cash-flow financing options to overcome the upfront cost barrier to getting energy efficiency projects started and completed.
