Reduce Waste, Energy and Water – and Boost Your Bottom Line

A HIP investor can estimate energy intensity and compare among industry peers. Some companies report energy usage (in gigajoules); others report kilowatt-hours of electric purchases—dividing either measure (usage or purchases) by revenue, you can compare energy intensity.

Remember renewable energy eliminates the need for fossil fuels, the attendant pollution, and the risks associated with volatile price swings — an eco-efficient triple play. We look for this metric not only to reduce risk, but to increase top line sales (as consumers incorporate efficiency into their shopping habits), as well as bottom line revenue where reduced costs equal higher profits.
