Some products now report their carbon footprint as an indication of their commitment to reducing their carbon footprint.

Conduct energy and greenhouse gas inventory 8. Communicate 7. Monitor results, evaluate 3. Set targets 4. Develop energy and climate action plans 6. Implement plans 5. 1 Iterative steps for energy and climate action plans. next step is to set targets for reducing emissions. Setting targets leads to development of a climate action plan (CAP). Some organizations may consider doing both an energy plan and a CAP. These two plans are slightly different in nature. Reduced emissions from reducing process emissions or from switching to alternative energy sources would not be as directly visible from an energy plan where the focus may be in reducing energy use.

The TBL concept adds social and environmental values to the traditional economic measures of an organization’s success. In terms of organizational decision making, the TBL concept moves beyond ranking alternatives based strictly on the financial bottom line and requires evaluating alternatives based on how they will impact the environment in terms of pollution, and how those alternatives will successfully integrate into the culture of the organization or community. For example, if a company is considering implementing an office recycling program, the management team would need to evaluate each alternative program on economic factors (initial costs, program costs, revenue, payback period, and rate of return), environmental factors (waste diverted from landfills, energy usage, and changes in emissions), and social factors (capability/willingness of the employees to participate in the program and the positive and negative perceptions from the community related to the implementation of such a program).
