A breath of fresh air in China

Green Global Consulting (GGC) is providing industry-thought leadership set against its background of technical expertise. Its collaborations with industry and new clients in China are delivering world-firsts in energy efficient cost savings as well as green innovation. Zinzan Cunningham reports.


reen Global Consulting (GGC) is a sustainability consultancy firm specialising in the development

and implementation of tailored and sustainable business solutions with a focus on high-level data-centre design, construction, IT infrastructure, and high efficiency building retrofits. GCG aspires to be in the global theatre

of world-best corporate citizens, says GCG founder and CEO, Bob Sharon. “We take an honest and transparent

approach to business relationships,” says Mr Sharon. “We understand that consultancy is a two-way conversation, so we place as much importance on listening to a client’s needs as we do to passing on expert advice.”

Green Global Consulting will soon have offices in China and throughout the world, says Mr Sharon.

“GGC are also in the market for highly principled and well- connected thought leaders in China who may be interested in becoming local principals. Green Global understands that in order to succeed in China, it must be part of the ‘guanxi’ network,”he says.

Indeed GGC honours its word, its clients and its actions: “In this, we are old fashioned and make no apologies.”

For the ultimate in innovation, service, solutions, savings and honour, enter Green Global Consulting, a breath of fresh air.

From design and strategy to project

management, procurement and ongoing managed services post-commissioning, GGC takes a client-focused approach to delivering premium technical consulting services outside the restrictions of generic service packages. “We’ve abandoned the one-size-fits-all

mantra. At GGC, we use our skills and expertise to devise and manage effective solutions to suit your specific goals and targets. “It’s not just about being green for the

sake of being green, either. Our solutions work, so we’re up-front about ROI, TCO and when, where and how you can expect to see our services contributing to your bottom line. “In the same breath, GGC’s true value

isn’t just in cost-cutting. We’re dedicated to helping our clients make an active cultural transition towards becoming a more sustainable organisation.” What sets GGC apart from our

competitors, says Mr Sharon, is its dedication to the long-term success of the strategies it designs and implements. “While for other firms, implementation

of proposed systems and strategies marks the end of the client-consultant relationship, GGC offers ongoing services that extend throughout the entire lifecycle. “For us, project implementation is merely

the beginning of an ongoing process. We are dedicated to provide the service and expertise to ensure KPIs are being met or exceeded.” Armed with a reliable, innovative and

sustainable approach to the challenges faced by clients, GGC can add value across both greenfield and brownfield opportunities in shopping centres, office and residential buildings, environmentally controlled industrial facilities, data centres and green IT. “At GGC, we recognise that global

sustainability in business cannot be achieved through the provision of ‘blanket strategies’ to the masses. Instead, we aim to make a

definite and noticeable contribution to the global movement towards sustainable best practice by working intimately with our clients to develop unique, case-by-case solutions guaranteed to produce tangible results,” says Mr Sharon. The latest sustainable technologies

and solutions can significantly increase operational efficiency and performance and drive down costs. This shift, says Mr Sharon, means just one thing: going green is now more profitable than you might imagine. “Here at GGC we are offering a complete

service unique to the world and helping our clients achieve the competitive advantage sustainability now offers. Our expert team takes care of all your project needs – from negotiating power and energy pricing, to government credits, procurement, project management and even financing. Using GGC’s services, going green is now easier than you might imagine. Mr Sharon says it is the world’s best kept

secret: sustainability in corporate operations can gain bottom-line reductions of as much as 80 per cent in energy costs and 100 per cent in greenhouse gas emissions. “Most CEOs, CFOs and CIOs believe that

sustainability upgrades to building or IT infrastructure and operations is nice to have but not affordable as the ROIs could take five to 10 years (or so they think). Nothing could be further from the truth. Some of the simple things in fact can have ROIs of six to 18 months while major infrastructure upgrades can often have ROIs of two to three years. “With global uncertainty at its peak, the

business environment is getting tougher. While there are many organisations who can come up with average solutions that will work, without the right experience, innovation, passion and professionalism, the optimum solutions cannot be achieved, and thus the ultimate returns in dollars, corporate citizenship and marketing.”
