Published on

The Sustainable Performance Institute (SPI) Certification is the first independent program to evaluate the capabilities of design and construction companies to deliver consistent, high-quality sustainability services. From February 1-March 15, SPI is opening the first public comment period for the Certification program. The public comment period is an opportunity for the green building community to give feedback on the Certification criteria across five categories: 1) Leadership, Strategy & Policy, 2) Project Delivery, 3.) Infrastructure and Support Systems, 4) Partnering and Collaboration, and 5.) Outcomes and Performance.

This webinar is an opportunity to share your experiences and thoughts on the criteria and metrics used to evaluate company capability.

  • Three paths…where are you?...make 3 slides, additiveBeginning…unsure of where you want to get to/just starting outGap – some successes, some goals, not “there” yetThere! Congrats, be rewarded. (or course, the destination keeps moving and so must you)
  • Left brain right brain…LEED focuses on technical applications/executionBUT the actual impact on capital cost savings and performance lies MUCH more with : TEAM work, collaboration, Myers briggs profile of our industry

  • Too redundant with what’s in slides later?This + greenwash + survey results might be one too many. Maybe move this up, as a summary of the survey findings section? And I think we should consider ditching the greenwash slides—cute, but may take too long to explain each one.
  • TRULY GREEN FIRMS DEMONSTRATE: CONSISTENT CAPABILITY , IN ALL OF THESE CATEGORIES, ON ALL PROJECTS, ALL THE TIME
  • BETTER COLOR SCABreak into 2 slides. One just shows the 5 categories; the 2nd adds the truly green firms….textTELL THEM – at this slide – That each of the following categories will be broken down:Definition (what it is)Issues, what are the problems this addressesSolutions – what should be put in placeMetrics: How do we measure them/what evidence do we look at (what indicators should they consider)

    5. 5. RESOURCES
    6. 6. TRAINING
    7. 7. ORGANIZATIONAL </li></ul> CERTIFICATION<br />SPI Certification evaluates and recognizes organizational capability to deliver consistent, high quality sustainable design services. It evaluated this across all aspects of the company and at all levels.<br />Being Certified tells property owners that you are reliable and capable.<br />Program Partners Include:<br />
    8. 8. Why Is “LEED AP” Not Enough?<br />Necessary, But Not Sufficient<br />PEOPLE<br />(LEED AP)<br />COMPANIES<br />(SPI)<br />It is critical for individual practitioners to be skilled and knowledgeable.<br />IF<br />Sustainable capability stops with the individual, a company will never be able to deliver consistent, high quality sustainability services!<br />Gaps will exist in policy, systems, processes – that lead to institutionalized expectations and high performance.<br />

    10. 10. Observations From The Field<br />We have a lot of “gaps” to address:<br /><ul><li>Lack of leadership, commitment
    11. 11. Lack of accountability structure
    12. 12. Lack of consistency
    13. 13. Lack of integrative process
    14. 14. Lack of quality control
    15. 15. Lack of tools & resources
    16. 16. Lack of shared learnings
    17. 17. Dependence on LEED as a crutch</li></ul>Human nature doesn’t help….<br />(Don’t we just love new things?)<br />
    18. 18. Signs of Change…Positive changes that we’re seeing:<br /><ul><li>Clearer Roles & Accountability: Director of Sustainability, other…
    19. 19. Institutionalization of standard practices/processes (IDP)
    20. 20. Partnering: Proactive relationship building using BIM workshops
    21. 21. Investment in green on projects from overhead, even when clients don’t ask for it
    22. 22. Change in workflow – moving integration function to earlier in the project – lowering costs, reducing risk
    23. 23. Project performance improves !
    24. 24. Baseline projects meet LEED without extra effort</li></li></ul><li>The Journey to Excellence: Where are you?<br />CONTINUOUS <br />IMPROVEMENT<br />RELIABLE<br />CAPABILITY<br />CERTIFIABLE<br />“EN ROUTE!”<br />ON YOUR<br />WAY<br />JUST<br />STARTING<br />OUT<br />Companies are at different places on their journey to achieving excellence in sustainability practice.
