Site Audit

Equipment Manufacturing

Opportunity: In launching its sustainability program, an electrical equipment provider requested energy audits with the results then turned into a training manual for staff to advance facility audits

Process: We conducted a preliminary site assessment and developed a site audit curriculum. We delivered the curriculum training with 15 staff in attendance and subsequently went out into the field for the participants to gather data using the curriculum guidance.

Results: Client was pleased to have not just an audit but a curriculum around which to center facility sustainability strategy, building on their existing leadership training and EH&S commitments.

Produce Energy/Water/Waste

Opportunity: A large produce processing plant was looking to kick off its sustainability program and get a better baseline on resource use and opportunities.

Process: Working with a partner firm, our collection of baseline energy, water, and waste data fed into our site assessment. Climate Positive staff investigated the plant for potential resource savings and opportunities.  We developed brief strategy statements and presented recommendations to leadership.

Results: Results are yet to be announced from this recent project. Stay tuned!

Business Waste Reduction

Opportunity:  Alameda County aimed to divert 75% of waste from landfill to higher uses.

Process: Climate Positive staff targeted the industrial and commercial sectors. We conducted waste reduction assessments at businesses throughout the County. We identified reduction opportunities and identified new alternatives for waste management. Our staff also helped ensure successful implementation of recommendations through thorough followup.

Results: Climate Positive clients collectively reduced waste to landfill by 10,000 tons over the course of six years.
