Implementing A Sustainability Program Is Complex – But CKE Restaurants Did It!

Kylene Fickenscher

cke-restaurantsWhile many businesses today are motivated to implement a sustainability program, The Guardian recently reported that it’s difficult for companies to know where to begin. Sustainability is a broad topic that can cover many areas of your business with a diverse set of challenges. Making sense of that complexity and effectively managing a corporate sustainability program isn’t easy, but there are proven methods for success.

Through the effective use of the Ecova Blueprint, Ecova is helping clients navigate this complexity and develop comprehensive energy and sustainability programs to drive cost savings and reduce environmental impact.

Ecova recently published a case study on the resource management strategy implemented by CKE Restaurant Holdings, Inc., a national quick serve restaurant chain featuring well-known brands such as Carl’s Jr.® and Hardees® By applying the Ecova Blueprint, CKE was able to assess opportunities around energy, water, waste, carbon and supply chain and develop a program that provided cost savings of $1.6M annually, mitigated operational risk, and spoke to shareholder expectations.

I encourage you to check out the case study to learn more about how CKE was able to save valuable resources. Please contact us with any questions or to learn how Ecova can create an energy and sustainability program that’s right for you.
