Assessment

EcoLens typically collects original data and assesses existing data to seek high-leverage opportunities for achieving sustainability goals. The firm’s staff uses standard and proprietary tools to diagnose an organization’s strategy with a sustainability lens. This diagnosis may range from a complete review of the organization’s strategy to detailed analyses of the built environment, the life cycle of products and services, internal and external impacts and opportunities.

EcoLens’ assessment phase involves original research relevant to the client’s strategy. Diagnostics usually include environmental footprint analyses including:

  • GHG emissions
  • energy and resource consumption profiles
  • risk factor analyses

The firm begins its work with interviews of key stakeholders to ensure an understanding of the issues related to sustainability that the organization is facing and to get a clear picture of how best to structure services directly relevant to the client.
