Press Release: Sustainable Tulsa Launches the Region’s First Business Sustainability Scor3card Program

TULSA, Okla. (December 1, 2016) – On November 17th, Sustainable Tulsa officially opened their business sustainability Scor3card program for enrollment, and unveiled the new online tool at their B2B Case For Sustainability event. This Scor3card is the first sustainability tracking and assessment program in the region and it is helping businesses realize measurable results on their triple bottom line: people, profit, and planet.

Sustainable Tulsa is hosting three free informational sessions for area businesses to learn more about how the Scor3card works and how it can help their business. Join Sustainable Tulsa at one of three public informational sessions December 8th, January 5th, or January 17th. Seating is limited, so registration is required. Register for the event online at: https://sustainabletulsainc.org/events.

“The Scor3card is designed to guide local businesses, municipalities, tribes and nonprofits toward better business practices, to save on the top and bottom line, assist with quality employee retention and improved resource management,” says Corey Wren Williams, Executive Director of Sustainable Tulsa.

In 2015, Sustainable Tulsa developed a pilot of the Scor3card program, in collaboration with area experts, to help businesses easily track and measure their sustainability efforts. Two-dozen Tulsa area companies participated, resulting in significant improvement in financial savings, employee engagement, and branding their company as committed to growing a healthy economy for the Tulsa area, while also protecting natural resources. This defines what the triple bottom line is all about: people, profit, and planet.

This year, the Scor3card has an online tool that tracks and measures a total of 153 items in seven categories including: communication & promotions, community stewardship, energy, healthy work environment, materials management, transportation, and water. This program also offers benchmarking services and a trained coach who will guide and mentor businesses through the process. Businesses will have access to ongoing education and will be recognized for their progress at the final event in 2017.
