Environmental Metrics Quantification
GSI employs a systematic process for evaluating and quantifying key environmental sustainability metrics associated with target processes of interest, allowing clients, portfolio managers, regulators, and local stakeholders to readily compare how alternative operations scenarios affect the environment and surrounding communities.
In almost any industry, technology/process development or changes can pose a number of challenging policy, technical, and economic issues associated with environmental “sustainability,” including carbon footprint, natural resource conservation, safety and community concerns. Sustainability is a concept that broadly concerns measures that can lead to economic growth while simultaneously ensuring progress in the condition of the environment and society. Corporate investors and managers increasingly recognize the long-term financial benefits of good corporate governance and sustainable practices, but often lack a consistent and reliable process to quantify and compare appropriate metrics.
