The Story

We are a society largely measured by metrics. In the business community  metrics are used to track financial earnings and growth. Nations uses  metrics to track economic indicators. There are all kinds of metrics –  social metrics, health metrics, education metrics, consumer metrics –  the list goes on!  

There are also accountability metrics  – for instance your credit score is an important measurement of how  competent and trustworthy you are when it comes to honoring your  financial obligations. HIPAA metrics monitor healthcare organizations to  ensure that the privacy of a patient’s records is never compromised!  Why can’t there be an Environmental Credit Scoring System that measures an individual, business, or organization in terms of how invested they are in protecting the environment?

We recently launched a new nonprofit organization, Environmental Credit Score Foundation,  based in Lewes, Delaware, U.S. A patent-pending system and methods  assign a numerical score indicating a company or individual's  ‘environmental creditworthiness’ according to their actions and efforts  in regard to environmental activities. It is a smart and practical way  to make the protection of the environment ‘Everyone's Business.’

With  your support, this environmental credit score will be nationally  recognized, accepted as one of the factors in making admission,  scholarship and award decisions. A standardized environmental credit  score can also be used in making many other decisions, such as those  related to employment, landlord-tenant relations, and institutional  policy.

I conceived of this idea on hot summer’s  day while quenching my thirst from a plastic bottle of water. I passed a  garbage container and noticed several empty water bottles littered on  the grass beside the garbage container. I picked them up and put them,  along with my empty bottle, into the garbage.

There were three  guys standing on the other side of the building watching me. One of them  had finished drinking his water and tossed the empty bottle at my feet.  My anger flared, and I said to him, ‘Man, you were watching me  collecting the bottles. Why did you throw your empty bottle in front of  me rather than in the garbage container?’ He responded belligerently,  ‘It is not your business Man.’ When I left, I began to think that there  has to be a way to make environmental protection everyone’s business. In fact, I reflected that we really shouldn’t even be using plastic bottles much less littering the ground with them.  

Later,  I filed a patent application related to ‘methods and systems for  environmental credit scoring,’ which then led to the development of an environmental credit score, a numerical score that represents the environmental creditworthiness  of an individual, business, or any other entity. A high environmental  credit score indicates better environmental creditworthiness.

Your tax-deductible donation will help Environmental Credit Score Foundation  hire more developers so that we can expedite the official launch of the  environmental credit scoring system. Because of your support, one day  we will be able to say, ‘Volunteering for environmental protection is no  longer necessary, because it is now everybody’s business!’  With your help, there will soon be an environmental credit score that  reflects the environmental footprint of any individual, business,  organization or entity.

Businesses, educational institutions,  and government agencies, along with rideshare, recycling and green  technology companies are among our potential partners. By providing  environmentally-friendly services and products and organizing or  sponsoring environmentally-based activities, they will be able to  promote themselves as conscientious stewards of the environment to the  public.  

We are confident that this project will  inspire a global movement toward working together across all boundaries  to preserve our planet! We are counting on you to make this possible!  Consider it your opportunity to invest in the future of our planet.  Please donate today and share this campaign with your family, friends,  colleagues and social media contacts.

Thank you!
