When it comes to sustainability, knowledge is power…if you know how to use it.
For instance sustainability monitoring systems are available that help facility managers monitor how much energy and water they are using to operate their facilities. However, many of these systems do not go the next step, suggesting ways to reduce consumption, a facility’s environmental impact and carbon footprint.
The exception is the Sustainability Dashboard, a Web-based tool developed by Sustainability Dashboard Tools, LLC, which helps cleaning professionals, building owners/managers, Green and sustainability advocates, unions, and others find this information and then use it so that they can become more environmentally responsible and sustainable.
“What is really exciting about the ‘Tool’ [is the improvement information] it provides,” says Sheila Sheridan, past chair of the International Facility Management Association. “Now, even the novice facility manager can implement changes that positively impact the environment, promote sustainablity, and save money.”
Sustainability, Knowledge, and Progress
“We all know that good information and price ‘signals’ are essential for developing strategies to becoming more sustainable,” says Christine Ervin, former CEO of the U.S. Green Building Council. “The Sustainability Dashboard Tool provides the kind of information needed to do this.”
Sustainable Dashboard Tools is a Web-based reporting software program designed to help the professional cleaning industry including distributors, manufacturers, and service providers as well as facility managers and others become more sustainable and environmentally responsible and operate their facilities more cost effectively.
The system is requires no special training and helps users track their resource consumption. It is totally flexible and can be used to measure a wide assortment of data from the most moderate to the most complex.
“This is precisely the system needed to help accelerate Green and sustainable progress,” adds Ervin.
