Sustainable Energy Starts With You

Wouldn’t it be nice to de-carbonize your revenue line?

What if you can?


Jimmy Jia is a strategist, author and educator who advises companies on using environmental indicators for corporate governance.

When corporations “right size” their consumption, they save money, reduce exposure to volatile pricing, improve competitive advantage and improve stewardship of environmental resources.

He has helped many organizations improve the maturity of their energy management programs by systematizing “random acts of greenness” into metric-driven strategies.

Quote


“Energy is just another critical resource that helps companies deliver value. As customer needs change, the energy needs shift along with it.”

Stop overlooking innovations within your organization!


Organizations frequently already have a myriad of grassroot environmental and sustainable initiatives as well as often unwieldy executive-level environmental reports. His workshops, advisory services and educational programs align these multitude of efforts into a single vision, breaks down the tasks into tangible parts and creates managerial metrics to track responsibility and progress.

He works to help innovations emerge from cross-pollination of problems, solutions, ideas and opportunities among executives, staff, clients, and other stakeholder groups. Within a company, this results in supporting both value creation opportunities as well as cost cutting initiatives.
