EarthShift Global’s 3Pillars software, the only general-purpose S-ROI tool on the market, helps professionals from across your organization collaborate on achieving financial goals while maintaining a commitment to sustainability.
Implementing the principles of Sustainability ROI (S-ROI) is a powerful process. With 3Pillars, you can see your business from the perspectives of multiple shareholders, assess and compare investment opportunities and justify your commitments to socially and environmentally responsible corporate or institutional activity, while minimizing risk and maximizing profitability.
EarthShift Global, a pioneer of S-ROI, has helped over a dozen organizations conduct their own analyses, and 3Pillars reflects our knowledge of both the process and the need for reliable, flexible capturing of relevant data – it walks you through the exploration. This convenient software framework helps you analyze potential returns from environmental, social, and financial perspectives for each stakeholder involved.
We’ve engineered 3Pillars to support whichever type of S-ROI engagement your company prefers – in-person workshops where multiple affected stakeholders gather physically in a room to assess a project or situation, or virtual discussions that link participants from diverse locations.
Whatever methodology you choose, the 3Pillars software platform applies advanced uncertainty and probability analysis and social networking tools to ensure that everyone’s input is welcomed, and that all the data can be conveniently reviewed and analyzed. Alternatives, scenarios, and costs and benefits are easily entered into a simple and intuitive graphic user interface.
You can also consider long causal chains – for example, an important facility on the Gulf Coast, might face a 3 percent probability of a hurricane strike in any given year. If a strike occurs, there might be a 50 percent probability of flooding. If flooding occurs, there might be a 10 percent probability of hazardous chemicals entering the watershed. If chemicals enter the watershed, there might be a 15 percent probability of getting sued, with typical damage awards running between $10,000 and $1.2 million. End result: you get a clear vision of your specific big-picture risks and opportunities.
