Investing in sustainability: competitive advantage or just another expense?

Does your company still see investments in sustainability just as an obligation? Does it understand sustainable practices as cost and not value generation? To put sustainability in the center of business strategy not only contributes to improving the company’s reputation from the consumer’s view, but can also generate profit. In the energy and utilities management scenario, sustainable management can reduce costs by gaining efficiency in processes and reducing energy inputs consumption.

The Emissions Management module of the Viridis Platform promotes comprehensive control of greenhouse gas emsisions as well as of solid and liquid waste from operations of any size and complexity. The system also monitors and manages the entire balance of energy and mass. Emissions can be measured directly or calculated by equivalence from conversion rules applied to the variables of energy consumption. 

Viridis still gives complete support to the execution of practices advocated by the ISO 14001 standard, helping the company to maintain the expected environmental performance, as well as to acquire or maintain its certification by an appropriate external organization. The configuration of rules of equivalent emissions, the establishment of goals and indicators of environmental performance, and the execution of cycles of continuous improvement are essential elements to ensure compliance with the standards and the realization of the sustainable vision of the organization.
