For more than a decade now organisations from around the globe have benefitted from average savings of 30 per cent for energy and waste stream, and 20 per cent savings for water consumption thanks to EarthCheck. That's akin to receiving a 30 and 20 per cent discount to major operating costs and the benefits can be seen in the bottom line!
With EarthCheck Benchmarking and Certification, sustainability is not the unwieldy, ambiguous subject it can appear to be. From big business to small enterprise, the simplest of initiatives can be woven systematically into daily operations, minimising risk, maximising profit and improving guest experience.
