TRANSFORMING MINDS. TRANSFORMING COMPANIES.

// THE FIRST BALANCE SHEET
TO CHANGE YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS //

Balance sheets are important indicators for the success of a company. But what do they achieve?

  • Do they influence the awareness of your employees?
  • Do they initiate change to make your company fit for the future?
  • Do they help the company to transform into a sustainable player on the market?

A Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of an individual is a form of a personal balance sheet that changes thinking and perception. It makes people aware of the environmental influences of private and professional consumption and creates the basis for a sustainable transformation from within.

// EMPLOYEES – THE BEST ENERGY SOURCE FOR SUSTAINABLE TRANSFORMATION //

As a company, you want and need to take big steps to push transformation towards sustainability. This goal cannot be achieved without your own employees honestly supporting your goals, especially by your managers.

greenzero.me backs you on your way to sustainable transformation by raising exactly this awareness in your teams.

A greenzero.me™-project supports people – executives, technical managers, employees – to measure and understand their own environmental impact. Reflecting their own LCA, we start an inner change of consciousness.

This turning point makes the company fit for the future by reconsidering its values and products, developed for the society: as an innovator in its industry and as a pioneer for sustainable acting.

// THE SOCKS COUNTERS OF TODAY BECOME
THE GAME CHANGERS OF TOMORROW //

As part of a greenzero.me™-project, we survey the daily consumption of the participants during a defined period of time, evaluate their possessions and retrospectively shed light on factors that negatively influenced the environment in the past:

Monitoring
Regular consumption
Acquis
Irregular consumption
Retrospective
Essential data from the memory

Counting one’s own socks is also part of the examination concerning the personal way of living. This confrontation highlights the purpose and the challenges of a sustainable transformation.

It brings a new perspective on the quality and potential of products and services, and on the future of your own organization.

So at least, sock counters become game changers.

// DATASETS WRITING THE COMPANY HISTORY //

Our innovative greenzero.me™-platform enables our customers to collect all relevant data* simply and smart in a single project phase – mobile or on the computer.

Our unique greenzero.me™-approach is based on the Life LCA method** developed by the TU Berlin.  It is a transparent, multi-criteria and data-driven model that determines the emissions and the resource consumption for the entire lives of our participants.

The data collected distinguishes between private and professional factors. This shows the effects caused by the work for your company precisely.

Thus you not only empower your employees to realize their own environmental impacts, but you can also sustainably improve the positive effect that employees, companies and products have on the environment.

// CO2 FOOTPRINT? WE GO ONE STEP FURTHER! //

The burden of CO2 emissions is undisputedly one of the biggest environmental problems, but by no means the only one.

In our evaluation, we calculate the individual environmental footprint of each participant in several impact categories that are relevant for the environment and climate.

We analyze and identify the environmental »hotspots« and develop optimization and compensation measures on request.

Our impact categories:

Climate Change
Photochemical Ozone Creation
Acidification
Ozone Depletion
Resource use
Eutrophication
Water use
