Through our extensive and unique experience, ICF has evolved an integrated and comprehensive solution framework for corporate sustainability that delivers tangible business results. ICF's Green Business team helps corporations envision, design, and implement sustainability programs that reduce operational costs, improve environmental performance, and enhance brand recognition and market positioning.
ICF's proven methods and tools deliver tangible cost savings and associated performance improvement in the areas of energy, water usage, waste generation, and recycling. These savings can begin immediately with the application of "no cost" and "low cost" portfolio-wide performance improvement measures. Our clients often achieve up to 20-percent cost savings prior to pursuing capital investments in new technologies, and typically see an additional 10 to 15 percent in savings with these capital investments.
ICF's suite of corporate sustainability solutions includes the following critical success factors:
- Corporate Sustainability Strategy
- Corporate Performance Analysis
- Employee Engagement Programs
- Performance Tracking and Reporting
- Strategic Communications
ICF has worked with hundreds of corporations over the past 18 years through our support for numerous U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) voluntary market transformation programs, including Green Lights, ENERGY STAR®, Performance Track, and SmartWaySM, providing an array of services across multiple industry sectors.
ICF has been providing international governments and corporations with consulting and advisory services on climate change and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions management for more than two decades. In addition, ICF consults to the global energy and power markets and is currently managing over 150 energy efficiency and demand side management programs for more than 40 utility companies across the United States.
