“Blanchard has been implementing sustainability measures for years now, but the Sustainability Circle has given us a huge leap forward,” shares Tom McKee, CEO of The Ken Blanchard Companies. “Partnered with business colleagues, and educated by expert speakers in the sustainability field and TMS coaches, we now have the knowledge and inspiration to put our ideas in to a cohesive plan that will have the maximum effect for our business, our people, and the planet. We have already made some important changes to our facilities, and our flagship products, and have clear goals for implementing new programs and measuring the results.”
The TMS Sustainability Circle Program helps small to mid-size businesses (SMEs) build competitive advantage, profitability, and brand leadership through a 6-month peer-learning program that uses the latest thinking, technologies, and tools to embed sustainability practices into their organization. The outcome of the program is a customized Sustainability Action Plan created by participants themselves and geared toward their specific business objectives such as energy efficiency, productivity, or cultural change.
The Ken Blanchard Companies initially joined a Sustainability Circle with the goal of reducing their carbon footprint. The program provided essential insights on the business case for sustainability and provided useful tools for funding and implementing changes in heating and cooling, vendor selection, and waste mitigation. As a result, Blanchard has created a plan that includes renewable energy, waste reduction, and water conservation measures.
TMS founder and CEO Elliot Hoffman explains, “It’s exciting for us to work with forward-thinking organizations like The Ken Blanchard Companies who recognize that thriving in a competitive market requires ingenuity, solid brand reputation, and sound business practices that nourish the company, the community, and the environment. We’re proud that they chose TMS to help them meet their sustainability goals.”
