Creating a Sustainability Program

opportunities and learn how to
use the latest research published
that might affect your sustainable
operations. Without learning,
how can there be improvements?
*	 Benchmarking: Industry
working groups, associations,
and others are creating the
means to benchmark sustainable
operations. One of the benefits
of NAPA's EPD Program is that
it gives companies the ability to
compare their data to industry
averages and benchmark
their progress toward greater
efficiencies. Sustainability
programs collect data to
communicate progress with
stakeholders, and to measure
and make improvements.
Benchmarking through the NAPA
EPD Program will give your
company an idea as to how much
improvement may be necessary.

improvement means a higher ROI
for your company. AP

Revising Goals
As your company prepares to
revise the goals of its sustainability
program, don't be afraid to voice
disappointing results that fall short
of a goal. Gather the data, recent
knowledge, research and stakeholder
feedback to determine a new
strategy. Decide if the operation in
question simply requires tweaking
or if there was a major flaw in the
original premise that can now be
corrected. Was the goal appropriate,
but operations poorly executed?
Was the goal overly ambitious? Did
your company meet the goal, per
se, but follow-up needs to change to
better leverage the results? Set your
new goals accordingly.
Whether sustainable operations
goals increase, decrease, or a new
operation is chosen to replace an
existing one, stakeholders appreciate
a genuine desire and effort for
improvement. Share your plans with
employees. Celebrate the successes
- they participated in making
them a reality. And remember with
each successive year that continuous
