Key Green Solutions Sponsors and Helps Grand River Cleanup

KGS team participates in the 19th Annual Mayors’ Grand River Cleanup

This past Saturday the KGS team had the opportunity to participate in the 19th Annual Mayors’ Grand River Cleanup in downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Key Green Solutions :: Environmental Sustainability Stategies and Management – Energy software helps organizations across the country manage their water resources. As the leader in sustainability management software, Key Green is proud to be part of managing and maintaining clean water.

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.

Tracking Sustainability in All Seasons

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.

Key Green Solutions Supports Local Water Cleanup

www.keygreensolutions.com

In Grand Rapids, Michigan, there is an annual water cleanup for the Grand River. The West Michigan Environmental Action Council spoke a few days ago on the importance of civilians stepping up and helping to remove the trash and pollution, especially as life has become so virtually- driven and busy (https://grbj.com/news/sustainability/wmeac-to-host-weeklong-mayors-grand-river-cleanup/¬).

The WMEAC has extended this challenge of grouping together during a time of solitude and uncertainty to citizens, and Key Green Solutions is happy to answer the call by helping to sponsor the 17th annual Mayors’ Grand River Cleanup. It is more important than ever to push on towards sustainability, and we hope to be leaders in our community stepping towards a better future. We are inspired by our customers, the leaders in healthcare for environmentally forward initiatives, and look for opportunities to support community health in any way we can. We encourage all to come together and help make a difference, whether that difference be on a large scale in the healthcare setting, or at a local community water cleanup effort.

Practice Greenhealth: Another Successful Application Season

Another season of Practice Greenhealth award applications has come to a close, and our team is looking forward to seeing our customers’ results!

Every year Key Green Solutions supports their customers applying to Practice Greenhealth by populating their application with data pulled directly out of Key Green Solution’s software application, and this data is then QC’d by the healthcare system’s personal Key Green Solutions Relationship Coordinator. This year we automatically uploaded data into the Practice Greenhealth Partner for Change Award application for 49 hospitals. We sorted through 1.5 million data records and answered around 4,000 questions; for us this takes about 5 minutes per location, all because of one word: automation.

Our automatic process saves the healthcare system time and money; there is no longer a need to scramble through endless excel sheets to find the data, and our customers can leave all the work up to Key Green Solutions. We help our customers set the standard of excellence for the healthcare community nationwide. Now all there is left to do is wait for that award!
