Phase III of the Profitable Sustainability Initiative has Openings for 32 Additional Companies


Posted: April 7, 2013

During the Profitable Sustainability Initiative's Pilot Program, manufacturers realized a substantial return on their investments. On average, participants had an annual savings of $146,783 and broke even with their investment in under a year. As a result, Phase III of the Profitable Sustainability Initiative has openings for 32 additional companies.

The Profitable Sustainability Initiative is managed by the Northwest Wisconsin Manufacturing Outreach Center (NWMOC) and the Wisconsin Manufacturing Extension Partnership (WMEP). Together, they help manufacturers improve competition, increase savings, and develop sustainable practices. Funding for the PSI comes from the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) and funding is open to all manufacturers throughout the state.

The PSI program is unique with its multidisciplinary approach to sustainability and there is no other program like it in the United States. Experts in the field of energy, finance, logistics, and the environment collaborate on how to improve and promote sustainable manufacturing. By focusing on profits and environmental impacts, the PSI program has made Wisconsin a leader in sustainable manufacturing in the United States. In fact, the program has led to $47 of economic activity for every dollar of investment that comes from the state. More so, the PSI participants are reducing their carbon emissions, transportation miles, electricity use, among many other environmental impacts.

Interested manufacturers should contact Ted Theyerl, PSI Project Manager at NWMOC at 715.874.4658 or
