Since what gets measured gets done,
isn't it time to get smart about what you measure?

A picture may be worth a thousand words, but...

the right picture can be worth a million dollars.

provides a powerful, flexible, scalable and easy-to-use solution to the challenge of tracking and driving your organization's sustainability and economic performance.

Use it for material flow analysis, corporate social responsibility (CSR) reporting, supply chain benchmarking, and for business decisions that deliver “sustainability” right to the bottom line.

Knowing where you are, and where you're heading, gives you far better chance of getting there.

Business Metabolics inspires OpenEco energy+climate
Here’s how the right picture affected one company:

Our ThroughPut Pie™ showed nearly 75% Non-Product after recycling better


than industry averages,but as the CEO said:“It makes no sense to pour stuff down the sewer that should be in a bottle.” Within two weeks the company made a “zero waste” commitment, started researching how to get there – and found greater profit from a legal “waste” stream than from its main product line.
