Our Services for Companies

Strategy & Program Development

You’ve been tasked with creating or upgrading a corporate responsibility program. The dozens of environmental and social issues, the multitude of stakeholders, and especially the alphabet soup of acronyms can become cumbersome. We help you navigate through this landscape as a trusted advisor. We orient you on trends and best practices in all ESG areas, and help you devise a strategy to engage stakeholders, approach issues, set up your internal committee, and develop programs. We can provide support with implementation on a number of areas, and indicate plenty of partners to help with others when needed.

Many areas require collaboration and best practice sharing. We help you engage with industry peers and practitioners to get you involved in the discussion.

Data Management

Sustainability reporting, target setting, and monitoring of the attributes of your portfolio invariably require working with data. We don’t shy away from it. We conduct academic research across thousands of hotels, and manage this type of data for large portfolios and industry-wide studies.

We build customized tools for clients to help streamline, and we have our own innovative Greenview Portal data platform as a one-stop solution for your properties, company, and customers to streamline sustainability data and get the most value from it.

Our approach is to combine top-notch expertise with the necessary tools and software to provide the best value possible.

Benchmarking

How does your company, your corporate platform, your property, your venue, or your portfolio compare against peers and competitors? Are you lagging in common practices? Up to par with best practices? Leading with innovation?

Green Meetings Programs

We help hotel companies offer effective green meetings programs to customers, including the processes, best practices, and communications. We also help other companies green up their own corporate meetings, whether they be organized in-house, or are just seeking common criteria and a platform to request a green meeting offsite at other venues.

Target Setting

The yardstick of good corporate responsibility begins with your ability to answer the question “have you set targets?” These may include carbon emissions reduction, energy and water reduction, renewable energy usage, socially-driven goals. We provide the advisory groundwork, analytical steps, and if needed the data management to help you set and monitor your progress against goals and targets. We also have helped several companies and industry bodies with Science-based Targets for carbon emissions reduction.
