Competitive advantage: Green enterprise maturity model seeks to reduce carbon footprint

By Manufacturing Business Technology Staff August 5, 2008

Operations consulting firm The Results Group (TRG) has released the first Green Enterprise Maturity Model to help companies increase revenue and lower costs while reducing carbon footprint.
TRG’s Green Enterprise Maturity Model enables companies to assess Green maturity relative to their industry, execute business-focused Green initiatives, and create a road map for building a dominant competitive position.

The Green Enterprise Maturity Model enables TRG to characterize company readiness and capability to capitalize on new opportunities. The model profiles companies at four levels of maturity—Complier, Dabbler, Consistent Improver and Enterprise Optimizer—across major business dimensions. The model-based road map seeks to drive innovation and performance improvement across all enterprise operations, including supply chain, customer support, and product development.
“We see a lasting sea change around sustainability. Now is the time to build competitive advantage with the most effective Green initiatives,” says Bill Schneiderman, CEO, TRG. “Winners see opportunities to offer products that meet evolving customer preferences, and to intelligently maximize the value of scarce resources. Our Green Enterprise Maturity Model increases velocity for companies that are not satisfied with the status quo and see Green as a key element for winning.”
