DEAL Program announces 2019 Award Winners at ISSA Show
Each year, Sustainability Dashboard Tools presents the DEAL Program Awards to distributors throughout North America and Europe that have taken significant steps to reduce consumption and operate more sustainably and efficiently.
The 2019 Award winners were announced and presented yesterday at the ISSA North American convention in Las Vegas.
DEAL (Distributor Efficiency Analytics & Learning) is an online program developed by Sustainability Dashboard Tools which incorporates learning, analytics, and recognition to help distributors, wholesalers, manufacturers benchmark their use of water, energy, fuel, and other metrics to help streamline their business operations and realise cost savings in the process.
"We also conduct semi-annual performance reviews for all our clients," says Katrina Saucier, project manager for the program. "This goes to the core of the program. The review helps quantify the client's involvement with the DEAL program, verify money saved since joining the program, expenditures averted, as well as how much they have reduced their environmental impact."
As to money saved, Katrina says that the combined savings of all the distributors in the DEAL program since 2016 is nearly $1.5 million. "This is attributed to actual cost savings as well as costs avoided by being part of the program," she adds.
She also points out that just this year, DEAL participants are on track to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by as much as 858 metrics tons of CO2. "This is the equivalent of planting more than 14,000 trees for just this year."
Helping to make this happen and realise these cost savings are the 2019 DEAL Award Winners:

"We should point out that the DEAL program is like a journey," adds Katrina. "It continues to pay dividends over time by reducing operating costs, attracting more and better customers for DEAL participants, as they protect the environment to boot."
