When organizations become customers of Key Green Solutions, they work closely with our implementation team to make sure all vendors and data is accounted for. Last year, Implementation Manager Tim Schuitema did the same for a mid-sized customer and found severe discrepancies in their billing.
Tim stated, “Last November, I was assisting in a Request for Proposal for a mid-sized organization. While compiling a 12-month hazardous waste analysis, our team noticed their spend seemed much higher than what we would normally expect. After investigation into the discrepancy, we found that not only were there errors in the reporting their hazardous waste vendor had provided, but that they were also double billed.“
After the Key Green Solutions team evaluated the 12 months’ worth of invoices line item by line item to find any further latent billing errors, Tim was able to report back to the client with shocking and bad– yet ultimately great– news. “We told the customer what we had found to be multiple alleged billing errors, and they went back to their hazardous waste vendor for clarification. Thank to Key Green Solutions‘ implementation team, our customer was credited over $990,000 for the hazardous waste billing errors.”
Success stories such as this are why clients rely on Key Green Solutions to track and report their data. Our team investigates the numbers and reaches out to vendors to unravel any undiscovered reporting errors.

“Anesthetic gases represent around 5 percent of a facility’s scope 1 GHG emissions and around 50 percent of an OR’s emissions.”
Practice Greenhealth, Anesthetic gas how-to guide
Real change comes from intentional action. Healthcare systems need to have a well-rounded visual conception of the products being purchased so that changes can be implemented. Emissions from the OR are often overlooked, but contribute a substantial amount to the facility’s overall environmental impact.
Key Green Solutions offers a purchasing module that contains an anesthetic gas report. This report allows your system or facility to set a goal and view your historical baselines so that you can better establish a path to reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. After reaching out to your anesthetic gas vendors, we collect the data and upload it to our system. When you run the report, you (and your employees given access) will be able to view the costs, weights, and emissions for each type of anesthetic gas. Our reporting contains different combinations of tables and visuals; here is just one of the many graphs utilized by our customers:

Author for therapidian.org Melissa Schrauben has said that
“While the Grand River makes up 13% of the Lake Michigan watershed, it’s still
the largest contributor to the lake’s pollution.” This unfortunate scenario is
why the community has decided to come together and make a change.
This annual event is an opportunity for the community to come together and clean up trash from the Grand River and the surrounding land, helping the community make a commitment to a clean and sustainable future at home. In an interview from Fox 17 Annual Mayors’ Grand River Cleanup kicks off (fox17online.com) , Managing Partner of KGS Mark Huizenga was quoted saying of the event, “People from all over the area come here to say clean water’s important to us, and to be part of a solution.”
The Annual Mayors’ Grand River Cleanup is only one of many events that Key Green Solutions supports, and we look forward to finding more opportunities to not only help other businesses work towards sustainability, but to also show our community that we as a business care and are taking steps personally towards a better future.
Running a system-wide sustainability initiative is hard when you don’t have a reliable baseline. Bringing about change and encouraging employees to put their best feet forward when it comes to using less water during the summertime or making adjustments in consumption only works when you have an attainable goal in mind. Key Green Solutions can help you draw that goal line and find out where the difficulties lie.
Our software allows you to benchmark your facilities against
each other and see where the most work needs to be done. Your team is able to
run multiyear reports for individual meters so that faulty meters and
high-consumption irrigation meters can be recognized, observed, and resolved.
Sustainability projects are important, but even more important is having access to the data behind those projects. You have to observe a problem that needs resolving, and KGS allows you to track your progress. Reach out to us if you would like a free demonstration of our software, and get all your employees involved so that your company can work together on saving money and bringing about environmental change.
At Key Green Solutions we take pride in making your job easier! We are able to take all the data for your facilities and make them clear, concise, and readily available. Your team doesn’t need to worry about pulling together invoices or finding the right point of contact; we take care of this throughout the year on your behalf.
