Dr. Ram Nidumolu speaks about a new enterprise sustainability framework based on his research with leading global companies such as FedEx, Clorox, Cisco, P&G and others. This framework is the foundation of the Low Carbon Enterprise Executive Workshop Series.

Sustainability = Innovation

Earth in our handsThe quest for sustainability can unearth a mother lode of organizational and technological innovations that yield both top-line and bottom-line returns.  That quest has already begun to transform the competitive landscape, as companies redesign products, technologies, processes, and business models.  By equating sustainability with innovation today, enterprises can lay the groundwork that will put them in the lead when the recession ends.

– From "Why Sustainability is Now the Key Driver of Innovation"

Low Carbon Enterprise

Low Carbon EnterpriseLow Carbon Enterprise (LCE) was founded by Dr. Ram Nidumolu as a result of his extensive and groundbreaking research with leading Global 500 firms regarding sustainability, innovation, new business models and the emerging global low carbon economy.

Greening Point is proud to offer a series of strategic workshops for enterprise executive teams.  LCE has developed a simple but powerful approach for enabling the low carbon enterprise.  Based on in-depth study of leading innovators among the Global 500 corporations, the approach helps identify, prioritize and manage the innovations that provide the highest value to business in the emerging low carbon economy.  The framework  was published in the Sept. 2009 issue of the Harvard Business Review, the world’s most demanding and prestigious business journal.

The LCE vision is that the low carbon economy is inevitable since the worldwide impacts of climate change must be mitigated. This imperative will require a sea change in thinking about how to conduct business in this new context.  Despite the current financial crisis and great uncertainty, one thing is clear:  Enterprises that position themselves now for this new reality will be the ones to prosper in the next year and beyond.

Successful leaders are cultivating new mindsets and models to drive their strategy and execution in this new economy.  Shouldn't your company be one of the winners?
