It’s hard to admit we could do it better. To consciously attempt to improve our communications skills is a struggle. It is like trying to read a book on how we read. The process keeps getting in the way of the product. Let’s start with our weakest link: listening. We learn more by listening than by reading. Unfortunately, schools seldom teach us to listen. In fact, our listening skills get progressively worse though the school years. When I mentioned orchestrating a communication strategy, in all likelihood your mind jumped to holding meetings, developing papers, or handing out flyers.

An essential component of sustainability is people with effective management skills to guide us. This chapter is designed to give chief sustainability officers an awareness of the options before them, the relative advantages and disadvantages of those options, and a sense of the broader context in which we operate. MANAGEMENT Our energy programs have suffered for decades because we have too often failed to regard energy managers as part of manage27 28 Sustainability Management Handbook ment. The lack of “energy” expertise at the management table has hurt us all.

CSO’s response options to the board or releases to the public must rely on solid data, which indicate progress towards stated objectives. Either formally or informally every aspect of a sustainability program needs to be measured. Responses require hard data. Every sustainability program needs to rely on broadly accepted measurement protocols. Energy savings protocols represent a more advanced field of measurement, perhaps because money often changes hands based on documented energy saved. To measure energy efficiency savings, the International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol (IPMVP) is recommended.
