3 The Benefits of Ecoefficiency Ecoefficiency essentially maintains that organizations can produce more useful goods and services while simultaneously reducing negative environmental impacts, resource consumption, and costs.
4 Incentives and causes for increased efficiency: 1) Customers are demanding products that are environmental friendly
5 Incentives and causes for increased efficiency: 1) Customers are demanding products that are environmental friendly2) Employees prefer to work for environmentally respective firms

8 Environmental Quality Cost Model Environmental costs are costs that are incurred because poor environmental quality exists or may exist.Environmental costs can be classified in four categories: prevention costs, detection costs, internal failure costs, and external failure costs.
9 Classification of Environmental Costs by Activity Prevention ActivitiesEvaluating and selecting suppliersEvaluating and selecting pollution control equipmentDesigning processesDesigning productsCarrying out environmental studiesAuditing environmental risksDeveloping environmental management systemsRecycling productsObtaining ISO certification
10 Classification of Environmental Costs by Activity Auditing environmental activitiesInspecting products and processesDeveloping environmental performance measuresTesting for contaminationVerifying supplier environmental performanceMeasuring contamination levelsDetection Activities
11 Classification of Environmental Costs by Activity Operating pollution control equipmentTreating and disposing of toxic wasteMaintaining pollution equipmentLicensing facilities for producing contaminantsRecycle scrapInternal Failure Activities
12 Classification of Environmental Costs by Activity External Failure ActivitiesCleaning up a polluted lakeCleaning up oil spillsCleaning up contaminated soilSettling personal injury claims (environmentally related)Restoring land to natural stateLosing sales due to poor environmental reputationUsing materials and energy inefficientlyReceiving medical care due to polluted air (S)Losing employment because of contamination (S)

17 Environment Product Costs The environmental costs of processes that produce, market, and deliver products and the environmental postpurchase costs caused by the use and disposal of the products are examples of environmental product costs.
18 Full environmental costing is the assignment of all environmental costs, both private and societal, to products.
19 Full private costing is the assignment of only private cost to individual products. Private costing is probably a good starting point for many firms.Private costs can be assigned using data created inside the firm.

21 Product stewardship is the practice of designing, manufacturing, maintaining, and recycling products to minimize adverse environmental impacts.
22 Life-cycle assessment identifies the environmental consequences of a product through its entire life cycle, and then searches for opportunities to obtain environmental improvements.
23 Life-cycle cost assessment assigns costs and benefits to the environmental consequences and improvements.

30 Impact AnalysisImpact analysis assesses the environmental effects of competing designs and provides a relative ranking of those effects.
31 Improvement AnalysisImprovement analysis has the objective of reducing the environmental impacts revealed by the inventory and impact steps.
32 Environmental Perspective Five core objectives for the environmental perspectives:Minimize the use of raw or virgin materialsMinimize the use of hazardous materialsMinimize energy requirements for production and use of the productMinimize the release of solid, liquid, and gaseous residuesMaximize opportunities to recycle
