As environmental costs become more significant, it is important to understand the overall contribution that any portion of the organization makes to that cost structure. IT is an area that figures strongly in this understanding. The primary cost of the organizational ecosystem stems from its balance of energy demand and possible alleviation strategies. SIL's Total Cost of the Environment (TCE) analysis compares the pattern of resource production with alternate supply mechanisms, and can be used to identify opportunities for cost savings and resource demand reduction. Some of the factors considered in this analysis are:
SIL's clients have seen reductions in the TCE by factors as large as 37.3%. The switch from extensive adverse environmental impact to a greatly reduced eco-footprint is a valid option for further investigation by any responsible organization.
