One of the major issues companies face in driving environmental sustainability is the lack of focus. To overcome this issue, we propose a methodology based on the concept of eco-efficiency improvement (EEI) to help companies plan for environmental sustainability improvements.
Through this methodology, the current state of a company in terms of environmental performance is assessed and hotspots for improvement are identified.
Subsequently, proposed initiatives to address the hotspots are evaluated and prioritised to help the company focus their sustainability efforts to achieve greatest impacts.
To demonstrate the application of the methodology, a case study of a fruit juice manufacturing company is presented.
