TULSA, Okla., October 20, 2015 / 3BL Media /- Caelus Sustainability Consulting (Caelus) announced today the release of the latest version of their comprehensive sustainability audit. They are calling the latest release the CurrentState™ Sustainability Audit 2.0.
CurrentState™ was first introduced in December 2011 and has received very positive reviews from the companies that have used it. “Our clients have found CurrentState™ to be an excellent tool not only to improve existing sustainability programs but to also create new programs from the ground up”, says Anthony Gilbreath, Principal at Caelus. “It is also quite different from any of the other ‘sustainability audits’ in the market today because it is easy to complete, the results are very comprehensive and it takes a fraction of the time and expense of other audits that claim to be similar.”
What is CurrentState™?
CurrentState™ is a consulting service that conducts the most comprehensive sustainability audit available in the market today for businesses. It takes a snapshot of the current sustainability policies, procedures and practices of an organization and compares these to a database of over 1200 Sustainability Best Practices (which spans 29 business categories). This information is gathered and analyzed and is included in a Findings Report.
The Findings Report contains:
In-Depth Analysis – CurrentState™ conducts a Gap Analysis (compares current sustainability activities to all possible activities) and a Maturity Analysis (documents the extent to which activities are being conducted). From this information a sustainability consultant creates a ‘Sustainability Implementation Plan’ to improve performance across the entire organization.
Clear, Concise Charts & Diagrams – The Findings Report contains clear and concise charts and diagrams. These include your Performance Overview, Category Summaries, Quick & Quicker Win Analysis and others.
Quick Wins, Quicker Wins, Recommendations & Analysis – The Findings Report includes specific recommendations so your organization can begin improving performance on day one. All recommendations are in the form of ‘tasks’, so they can be easily organized into realistic and achievable projects and initiatives.
