(3BL Media / theCSRfeed) Tulsa, OK - December 7, 2011 - Caelus has released the CurrentState™ sustainability audit for business.
CurrentState™ delivers a comprehensive review of the sustainability practices of an organization. The audit provides the following deliverables and benefits:
a blueprint to develop a sustainability program;
a method to demonstrate to management, a board or the public an organization’s sustainability achievements;
a way to quickly identify gaps in your current sustainability efforts;
a way to document and track sustainability performance from period to period;
and a way to determine current compliance with major international standards and certifications.
CurrentState™ is based on Caelus’s Three Tiers of Sustainability™ framework. The framework organizes sustainability into 3 main categories: Green IT, Business and Facilities. It further divides these areas into 28 additional sub-categories.
CurrentState™ was developed by Caelus’s founder Anthony Gilbreath. “When I was working in the UK as a sustainability consultant, clients would always ask me the same question, ‘Are we doing everything we need to do in order to be green’. This is where the inspiration to create CurrentState™ began. Businesses need a clear framework that defines all the areas of sustainability and a tool that can measure their performance across all of these areas. This is exactly what CurrentState™ provides. The Three Tiers of Sustainability™ framework is really what sets CurrentState™ apart. No other firm in the industry has developed a similar framework or is able to capture so many of areas of sustainability together. In my opinion, this has been the missing link in sustainability analysis and reporting to date.”
Once an organization submits its information through their online system, a sustainability professional begins the analysis process and the preparation of the Findings Report. The Findings Report is delivered within 3 working days of submission. “We are able to offer such a quick turnaround because we have standardized and automated some of the more time consuming, non-analytical parts of the process. By doing this, we can begin expert analysis as soon as a submission is made. No other consulting firm can come close to matching the speed of delivery and value for money delivered by CurrentState™”
The Findings Report is ‘boardroom ready’ and is delivered in both PowerPoint and pdf formats. Each report will contain over 100 specific quick wins (shorter-term, easily achievable tasks) and recommendations (longer-term activities). “In essence, if you add resource requirements and budget to the report, you will have a nearly complete Sustainability Program. This is exactly what our clients are doing and their reaction has been overwhelmingly positive.”
