  3. 3. Now we have the evidence to show us that that our human activities, the footsteps of our own time, will affect negatively the lives and Bro Harlem Brundtland, Prime Minister of Norway, led a UN Commission on the Environment and Economic Development that traveled to five continents “Now we have the evidence to show us that that our human activities…..will affect negatively the lives and choices we leave to future generations in a potentially disastrous way…We face a moral challenge to act and to act in time to protect Planet Earth and the livelihood for new generations.” (1987)

  9. 9. #1 Radical resource productivity examines inputs and doubles or triples utilization rates reducing operating costs and environmental costs. Frederick Winslow Taylor, Father of Scientific Management “Hardly a competent workman can be found who does not devote a considerable amount of time to studying just how slowly he can work and still convince his employer that he is going at a good pace.”
  10. 10. Energy efficiency is a common example of resource efficiency but it includes any and all inputs.
  11. 11. Increasingly, we are focusing on ways to double or triple efficiency using, for example, DOD using waste heat from a tank to serve soldiers on reconnaissance/surveillance missions.
  12. 12. #2 Biomimicry is the strategy of mimicking the designs of nature in products, systems and processes.
  13. 13. Speedo helped Michael Phelps become the world’s fastest man in the water by copying. . .
  14. 14. #3 Service over products means viewing products as value-producing assets designed for adaptive reuse. Do you really want to own your TV? Or copier? Or generator? Or solar panel? Or carpet? Or iPhone? Or air conditioner?
  15. 15. Instead of selling the customer a product that you hope she’ll be able to use to derive the service she really wants, provide her that service directly at the rate and in the manner in which she desires it, deliver it ever as efficiently as possible, share as much of the resulting savings as you must to compete, and pocket the rest People don’t want to own carpet. They want the service it provides. Fact: 3 billion pounds of carpet landfilled every year in the U.S. Interface Corporation
  16. 16. $37 trillion = #4 Strategically investing in natural capital ensures supply chain resilience and social license to operate “Priceless”
  17. 17. “If our planet was a business, how much would it ask to be paid for the services it provides to a company in order to operate?” –Jochen Zeitz, PUMA Executive Chairman PUMA would owe nature $200 USD million/year
  18. 18. New York City invested $2 billion in natural capital (to protect its watershed) instead of $4 billion to build a filtration plant.
  19. 19. #5 Investing in human capital, the skills and capacities within people, ensures community well-being and a source of innovation. (Plus, humans are awesome)

  37. 37. How to leverage sustainability strategy to further energy projects: • Become sustainability literate and know the issues, standards, opportunities for your business and industry • Build relationships with your sustainability staff and learn about their charge and goals • Position energy efficiency and conservation (and EnergyCAP) as a strategic investment that advances sustainability goals • Develop a broader energy efficiency and conservation program to include technical, behavioral and strategic aspects to engage employees, customers and suppliers • Identify, measure and manage key performance indicators using appropriate technology
