From solar panels to company-wide recycling programs to supply chain decisions - green is here to stay. The question is: What's working, what's not, and what should we put our energy into going forward? And the only way to know that is to do a true return-on-investment analysis. Authors Jack and Patti Phillips bring their long-touted Return on Investment (ROI) methodology to these newest business initiatives, offering businesses the true antidote to green-skyA" thinking. From solar panels to company-wide recycling programs to supply chain decisions, today's emphasis on green investment is no longer balanced by a company's heightened reputation. For organizations making major investments in green projects, a measurement system showing return on investment-a scorecard that brings ultimate accountability-is imperative. Yet until this point, no clear, reputable methodology has been available. The Green Scorecard brings the authors' patented ROI methodology to this growing area of business, describing a systematic process with proven success across a variety of functions within the private and public sectors. The Green Scorecard provides companies and organizations with a clear and direct plan for when and how to move forward-or not-with any green initiative.

Review:

Jack and Patti Phillips unravel the mystery of measurement by presenting a balanced set of measures that show the full impact of programs, including bottom-line measures such as business impact and ROI. (Stephen R. Covey, Author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People)

Written in an easy-to-understand format, The Green Scorecard shows how to measure the success of sustainability projects with a balanced set of data including ROI. (Marc J. Epstien, Distinguished Research Professor of Management at Rice University and Author of Making Sustainability Work: Best Practices in Managing and Measuring Corporate Social, Environmental, and Economic Impacts)

Return on Investment is an answer to what executives are asking for―Patti and Jack summarize everything a practitioner needs to know and do. (William C. Byham, President and CEO, Development Dimensions International, Author, Zapp! The Lighting of Empowerment and Heroz!)

If narrowly defined ROI is the only criteria for determining project worth, we can probably kiss the planet goodbye...That’s why a deep dive on this subject is crucial, and that’s what Patti and Jack Phillips have done, in a way that will be useful and applicable. (Auden Schendler, Executive Director, Sustainability, Aspen Skiing Company)

Book Description Hodder & Stoughton General Division, United Kingdom, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Too many organizations are currently caught in a "green slump," struggling to engage in sustainability projects and making far less progress than they should be. Some businesses are striving to lead the way by equipping their facilities with new, energy-saving technologies or creating projects that contain post-consumer materials, whereas others may be just now implementing company-wide recycling programs. No matter which green initiative you choose, in order to succeed companies must adopt a results-based, return on investment (ROI) focus that helps them to identify, develop and implement green projects that add value-from an economic, environmental and societal perspective. In The Green scorecard, business leaders-from CEOs and CFOs to project managers and engineers-receive a reliable measurement and evaluation system that delivers credible data for decision makers. The valuable book, based on the ROI Institute's internationally renowned methodology, gives you clear steps for determining the overall worth of green projects-for both the environment and the bottom line.
