ENVIRON and Trucost Partner to Deliver Integrated Approach

ARLINGTON, VA--(Marketwire - Oct 25, 2011) - Ewire -- ENVIRON is pleased to announce its partnership with Trucost, the research firm selected by Newsweek to provide environmental performance data for its annual Green Rankings. Trucost delivers a fast, clear picture of operational and supply chain environmental impacts, providing focus areas for environmental strategies. Leveraging this data, ENVIRON helps clients drive performance improvements that target areas of greatest impact.

ENVIRON's partnership with Trucost enables us to help our clients refine their footprints, drilling into details for operational or supply chain hot spots. Trucost's accounting approach (built on an internationally patented technique) integrates financial data and business sector information within an environmental profiling model in order to map environmental impacts quickly and easily. From there, ENVIRON works with clients to develop strategies to mitigate environmental risks and enhance business performance in targeted environmental focus areas, including:

  • Water resources
  • Greenhouse gases
  • Air pollution: acid rain, smog, particulates, ODS, metals, VOCs
  • Land and water pollution: acid emissions to water, metal releases to land or water, eutrophication
