The Starting Point™


Building on the Eco Active™ Audit, the Living Wealth Starting Point™ programme identifies suitable efficiency processes for the areas of your organisation requiring improvement. Using the baseline assessment data from the Eco Active™ Audit and our growing database of eco efficiency industry benchmarks, areas of improvement are clearly highlighted so that systems can be implemented to realise these savings. The continual reporting that accompanies the programme allows for increased cost control and clearly displays the success of the cost saving mechanisms.

Aptly named, the Starting Point™ introduces companies to a brand new perspective on Total Cost Management. One where both business and environmental interests are addressed, moving your organisation towards economic prosperity and environmental sustainability.

Our Living Wealth Starting Point™ programme involves five steps:

Step 1: Contact Living Wealth and apply for an Eco Active™ Audit.

Steps to becoming environmentally friendly

Step 2: We will meet and agree on the scope of the KPIs to be measured. Once you provide 12 months of historical data (in both Rands and units); we can process your assessment and establish your baseline.

Step 3: Annual reduction targets are set on agreed KPIs with both optimal and minimum objectives.

Eco-active label

The Eco Active™ Audit is designed to highlight areas of potential savings in your organisation. Different to other assessments, we use our unique system to analyse data from your business in rands and units which exposes blindspots that traditional cutback methodologies and budget based accounting systems cannot identify.

“If we can’t find an area of savings, your assessment is free.”

We are so confident that we will find an area of potential savings, that if we cannot, your assessment is free of charge.

Imagine the opportunity cost of passing this by? Living Wealth’s world class programme can then help realise the savings we identify in the Eco Active™ Audit. Companies already using our programme are saving anything from 5% - 30%. Every day, week or month that passes could represent further potential losses for your organisation. Join the companies reaping the rewards from our programme and apply for your Eco Active™ Audit today.

How can your green consulting service help my business?

Without a green consultant, you may be losing moneyWithout a green business strategy and action plan in place, you are losing money daily. Everything in your organisation, right down to water and electricity consumption is costing you more money each day if it is not as lean and clean as it could be.

Besides being an environmentally responsible choice, hiring a green consultant like Living Wealth can actually cut costs and help your business survive in the long-term. Our Eco-business advisors help to provide green solutions to reduce operational costs, create awareness amongst staff and develop a clean and lean business strategy to follow.

 

Our Approach to green consulting

Living Wealth has created a toolkit designed to deliver results in most companies, industries and cultures. Our approach is simply comprised of four phases.

Phase 1: Measuring your business

This is your company's Environmental Baseline Assessment, looking primarily at your Water, Energy and Waste but may also include other aspects such as hazardous ratings of chemicals used and so forth.  Once this measurement is complete and we understand the impact your company is having on the environment we are then able to do something about it by looking in the right places.


Green consulting helps save you money

Phase 2: Generating Awareness

This can happen in parallel with phase 1, and it simply brings everyone in your company on to the same page in terms of why change is so important, what improvements can be made, and to generate ideas to take your company forward.  Please refer to our Environmental Awareness page for more information on this.


Phase 3: Strategy

As soon as the awareness has been created we assist with developing a management strategy to map your route forward.  Within this phase we have developed a Clean & Lean Business Strategy consisting of five modules, which you will see represented on our Green Business page.

This framework is based on our Clean & Lean Operating Principles which focuses first and foremost on all types of waste - including that of time and money - and on the concepts of:

  • Closed Loop Production: cyclical approach, with zero unusable waste
  • Cleaner Production: removing or replacing harmful materials and processes
  • Lean Manufacturing: reduction or reuse of raw materials through innovation
  • The Natural Step: 4 system conditions of sustainability


Phase 4: Implementation

This we support through our project management (see green solutions) and project collaboration tools and techniques.  Our in-house project management skills and experience are enhanced by a very clever, simple tool which turns an administrative task into a collaboration enterprise – ensuring each internally-spun idea is nurtured in a very cost and time effective way - while also simply managing communications and deliverables to target.
