ORGANIZATIONS ALL OVER THE WORLD ARE CHANGING THEIR VIEW OF SUSTAINABILITY AS A “NICE-TO-HAVE” TO A “MUST-HAVE,” AND FROM “WHAT?” TO “HOW?” NOW WE CAN OFFER OUR CLIENTS ANOTHER RESOURCE FOR HELPING THEM MOVE THEIR BUSINESS TOWARDS A MORE SUSTAINABLE FUTURE.
Houston, Texas-based BRIDGES to Sustainability™, formerly a nonprofit think-tank, has merged its consulting services into Golder Associates. Initially focusing on providing a greater sustainability element to Golder’s American clients and continuing with its existing projects, it will later expand to provide services globally.
BRIDGES helps clients integrate sustainability considerations into business practices. To do this, BRIDGES can tailor its clients’ management systems to incorporate sustainability dimensions, assess sustainability risks and opportunities, develop sustainability performance indicators, and provide training and sustainability awareness programs.
This way, BRIDGES helps organizations meet changing societal expectations, helping them to succeed in what is becoming a new level of competition – for recruiting employees, for meeting government requirements and increasingly, in competition for financial resources.
By creating tools that organizations use to meet the triple bottom line of economic, environmental and social performance, BRIDGES helps them become more sustainable through long-term higher performance. The BRIDGES team has focused on measuring sustainability performance in pragmatic business terms so that companies not only improve their sustainability practices, but also demonstrate bottom
and top line progress.
