A financial investment firm from Boston, Jantz Morgan, is turning to IBM's green consulting services arm (aka IBM's business strategy consulting practice) to help it integrate the idea of sustainability into its corporate operations.
The focus will go beyond the company's impact on the environment; it will also examine the way the firm contributes to the community and treats its employees (not necessarily in that order of importance). This is not that surprising when you consider that Jantz Morgan ALSO is rolling out a socially responsible investment offering to its clients this fall. So this is all part and parcel of eating its own dogfood.
Here are some of my background stories about the various IBM sustainability/corporate responsibility/green consulting services.
- IBM stresses the green-ification of product design and management
- Measure, measure and measure some more
- IBM consulting service begs the question: If your company isn’t green, where does it stand on ethics?
And, finally, here's the link to IBM's own Web site with information about these services.
