Santa Cruz, CA (PRWEB) September 20, 2009 -
Greening Point, Inc. announced a sales and promotion agreement with Verdafero, Inc. who are certified to deliver the renowned SCORE™ and SParRK™ corporate sustainability workshops.
SCORE is a sustainability assessment of business practices by department that can help business leaders and managers determine where their organization is on the road to sustainability and also identify new opportunities. It was developed by AXIS Performance Advisors in conjunction with the International Sustainable Development Foundation and the Zero Waste Alliance.
SPaRK is an easy-to-follow, systematic process for quickly leading an organization to develop a sustainability plan and report. The plan covers key aspects of sustainability such as building the business case, establishing a framework and vision, assessing sustainability impacts and selecting projects and reporting metrics. SPaRK was also developed by AXIS Performance Advisors.
SCORE and SPaRK are ideal for small and medium sized (SME) companies. They take the guesswork out of when and how to implement sustainability practices. They simplify the process of getting every department to understand the relevance of sustainability for their function while enabling companies to benchmark themselves against others in their sector.
"Verdafero's SCORE and SPaRK workshops are a powerful tool for enterprises to assess their ability to become sustainable, save money and create opportunities for new business at the same time. We are excited about contributing to our customers' sustainability-based business success," said Ian Browde, Greening Point CEO.
Using the SCORE and SPaRK workshops, Verdafero will provide companies with a clear snapshot of their strengths and areas for improvement. This may include an evaluation of their buildings, waste streams, energy and greenhouse gases, chemical inventory, and environmental management systems.
"With Greening Point promoting and selling our SCORE and SPaRK offerings," said Verdafero CEO Merc Martinelli, "we are confident that many more clients will learn about, and benefit from these comprehensive programs we are proud to provide."
