Ann Arbor-based environmental and human health organization NSF International today announced new services to help companies measure their environmental impact, identify potential risks, and capitalize on sustainability opportunities.
The company’s environmental services use evidence-based methods and quantifiable measures to help other organizations navigate sustainability issues and determine cost-effective reduction strategies for energy, water, materials, and land.
NSF International’s environmental consulting services are designed to complement its existing responsible sourcing consulting services. Clients can select their sustainability efforts by focusing on products and processes, projects, facilities, or supply chains.
“More than ever, organizations are expected to take responsibility for their environmental impact and continually report their progress toward more sustainable operations,” says Jenny Oorbeck, general manager of sustainability services at NSF International.
“With our proven methodologies, we can help organizations set aggressive targets, develop strategies, and implement policies and programs that will make a lasting, positive impact on their operations and on the environment.”
NSF International’s analysis of nearly 4,000 sustainability goals indicate some of the world’s largest companies only achieved 3 percent to 8 percent of their climate, water, waste, and land-use goals. Additionally, the 2016 CDP Climate Change Report indicates that 1.4 percent of more than 1,000 respondents issued science-based emission targets approved by the Science Based Targets Initiative.
