  • 1. ITWBCG Green Initiative
  • 2. ITWBCG Green Initiative
    • Team Members:
    • Andrew Rubell, Director HR
    • Brian Pedersen, Prog. Eng Project Manager
    • David Burkart, Sr. Tech Service Representative
    • Dick Riegle, Tech Support Manager
    • Bob Stobie, Network Admin
    • John Blackmon, Project Manager Steel
    • George Najar, Help Desk Analyst II
    • Tarang Agarwal, Programmer Analyst II
  • 3. ITWBCG Green Initiative
    • Global warming, water quality, air pollution, and landfills. Not a typical to-do list for another day at the office, but every workday each of us makes hundreds of decisions that affect all of these issues. Many of these choices are tiny—whether to toss an outdated report in the trash or in the recycling bin. Others are more substantial—whether to install a high-efficiency cooling unit for the building. In every case, though, the decisions make a difference for better or worse. The ITW BCG Green initiative promotes decisions that help address these problems. First, it is important that we gain an understanding of the issues. Second, we must present a business case for greening our office. Third, create a systematic framework to support the program. This would require:
    • Management Support
    • Employee Support
    • An office environment review
    • A policy framework
    • Initiate a Beta group
    • Analysis and findings
    • Refine and launch plan
    • Review progress
    • Green Score
  • 4. ITWBCG Green Initiative
    • Green terms:
    • Green Strategies: Focus on creating positive environmental attributes throughout an organization.
    • Green Products: Biodegradable or compostable products made from renewable resources, organically grown.
    • Carbon Footprint: A measure of one’s impact on the environment in terms of the amount of greenhouse gases produced, measured in units of carbon dioxide.
    • Sustainability: Practices that help to ensure the continued viability of a product or practice well into the future.
  • 5. ITWBCG Green Initiative
    • How green do we want to be?
    • What shade of green?
    • How does being green integrate with our business plan?
    • How does being green give us a competitive edge?
  • 6. ITWBCG Green Initiative ITWBCG Green Initiative Different Shades of Green Impact Cost Negative Minimal Moderate Significant Maximal Minimal Moderate Strong Heroic
  • 7. ITWBCG Green Initiative
    • What shade of “ GREEN ” ?
    • The greenest energy is the energy you don’t use; the greenest paper is the paper you don’t buy.
    • Reduce energy usage by minimizing when electrical equipment or lights are turned on.
    • Go paperless as much as possible, reuse paper when possible, and then recycle.
    • Encourage employees to recycle, and find methods to help employees save on gas.
    • Many (if not most) of the green steps we can take also save money, so…
    • … This is the shade of green we should aim for…
  • 8. ITWBCG Green Initiative
    • What does “ GREEN ” mean to ITWBCG’s pocketbook?
    • “ Green” = Cost Savings To Our Company

    • Summary of Energy Savings:
    • Current (24 hours a day 365 days):
    • ------------
    • 53 computers with 2 monitors on 24 hrs: $10,592
    • 21 laptops with 1 monitor on 24 hrs: $ 2,069
    • 58 cubicle with lights: $ 3,863
    • Total current cost per year : $16,525
    • Proposal (9 hours a day 5 days a week or 254 days):
    • ------------
    • 53 computers with 2 monitors on 9 hrs: $ 2,837
    • 21 laptops with 1 monitor on 9 hrs: $ 554
    • 58 cubicle with lights on 9 hrs: $ 1,034
    • Total proposed cost per year: $ 4,426
    • Savings per year: $12,098
    • KWs saved per year: 82,249
    • Reduction of carbon footprint: 64.24 Tons CO 2
  • 13. ITWBCG Green Initiative One time cost to get savings is the purchase of surge protectors $4,828 Surge protector : Isobar IB8RM Surge Protector with a remote OFF/ON Switch. This allows the surge protector to be on the floor while the OFF/ON switch is desk level. Cost per unit $65.24
  • 14. ITWBCG Green Initiative
    • How does being green give us a competitive edge?
    • Reduce expenses to both company and employees
    • Boost employee morale
    • Company image with our customers
  • 15. ITWBCG Green Initiative
    • How does being green give us a competitive edge?
    • Reduce expenses to both company and employees
      • 52 people figured in total miles
      • 1847 miles per day (MPD) / Average of 35.5 miles per person ( AMPD)
      • 254 work days in 2008 (WD)
      • $4.00 average per gallon of gas (APG)
      • 21 average fuel efficiency (MPG)
      • 4 day work week = (4) 10 hour days, (4) 8 hour days + (1) 8 hour day at home
        • Cost per week (5) day = ((MPD x 5) / MPG) x APG = $1,759
        • Cost per week (4) day = ((MPD x 4) / MPG) x APG = $1,407
        • Cost Savings = $351
        • Cost per month (5) day weeks = (((MPD x (WD/12)) / MPG) x APG = $7,446
        • Cost per month (4) day weeks = Cost per month (5)weeks x 0.8 = $5,957
        • Cost Savings = $1,489
        • Cost per year (5) day weeks = ((MPD x WD)/MPG) x APG = $89,359
        • Cost per year (4) day weeks = Cost per year (5)weeks x 0.8 = $71,487
        • Cost Savings = $17,871
        • Cost Savings per person per year = $344
    • Car Pooling (Groups of 3 - 4 people):
    • Cost per year per person = ((AMPD x WD) / MPG) x APG = $1,717
    • By car pooling the assumption was made we would reduce cost by 2/3.
    • Cost per year per person car pooling = (((AMPD x WD) / MPG) x APG) / 5 = $572
    • Savings per year per person car pooling = $1,145
    • A combined savings = $1,489
  • 16. ITWBCG Green Initiative
    • Carbon Footprint for Car Emissions:
    • Car emissions are calculated by dividing the miles driven by the fuel efficiency of the vehicle. This number is then multiplied by the CO 2 emissions coefficient, 19.36 lbs CO 2 /gallon of gasoline, and then divided by 2204.6 lbs/metric ton to obtain the tons of CO 2 emitted from car travel.
    • CO 2 Emissions ( tons) Based on total miles for the year = 196.2 tons
    • By car pooling the assumption was made we would reduce emissions by 2/3.
    • CO 2 Emissions (tons) Based on total miles for the year car pooling = 65.4 tons
    • CO 2 Emissions (tons) Savings = 130.8 tons

    • Boost employee morale:
      • According to the research by two BYU professors, employees on the alternative schedule were happier with their job, compensation and benefits, and they were also less likely to seek work elsewhere. One important aspect of the study, Facer said, was employees' perceptions that the work week took less time away from the family and personal interests.
    • Company image with our customers:
      • An innovative company, in step with the marketplace and the world in which it does business, must be seen by its customers as doing its part in helping our environment.  When asked by a customer what we are doing to reduce our carbon footprint, we can point with pride to the steps we are taking.  We must strive for a well-rounded image with the companies we deal with, as a supplier of goods and services, responsive both to the customer and to our environment.
