Elemental Impact is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing sustainable operating practices to the corporate community. Committed to effective action, Ei projects create easy-to-implement templates that make good business sense.

Ei’s tagline – Sustainability in ACTION! – is the foundation for Ei endeavors.

Working within three platforms, Ei initiatives forge industry frontiers with simple solutions to replace wasteful | toxic standard operating practices with an emphasis on rejuvenating Soil Health. 

The following mantra is at the core of Ei work:

Ei is a creator, an incubator.
Ei determines what could be done that is not being done and gets it done.
Ei brings the possible out of impossible.
Ei identifies pioneers and creates heroes.

Once templates are created, tested and replicated, Ei’s work is complete in the particular area. New frontiers await the Ei Team!

Platforms: 

Soil Health

Regenerating the foundation of life

Initial work relates to the education of depleted soils' direct relationship with the carbon crisis, out-of-balance carbon cycles, contaminated waterways, excessive water usage, erosion control, storm water management, and production of nutritious food. In addition, Ei addresses the micro plastic pollution within the soils, similar to the plastic smog prolific in the ocean. Soil Health is Ei's primary focus.

The inaugural Soil Health focus areas are:

Product Stewardship

Integrity throughout the entire product life-cycle

Holographic integrity, encompassing the entire value chain and product lifecycle, is integral to Ei initiatives. Product Stewardship is an important avenue to explore as programs dive deeper into the manufacturing and production practices | processes. The Ei PetroWax-Free Box Initiative is announced.

Water Use | Toxicity 

The Water Footprint: a new sustainability standard

The water footprint is as or more important than the carbon footprint. Global warming garners the headlines using the carbon footprint as the accepted sustainability measurement tool. The fact water is immediately essential to sustaining life seems ignored. The Ei Airborne Kitchen Grease and Ei Cooling Tower Blowdown Initiatives are announced.

Along with the July 2017 Soil Health Platform announcement, the Recycling Refinement (with a strong focus on Post-Consumer Food Waste) evolved into Mission Accomplished

Industry Pioneers 

Sustainable Food Court Initiative (SFCI)

An Integrated Approach to Sustainability

In alignment with the new Soil Health focus, Georgia World Congress Center Director of Sustainability Tim Trefzer joined the Ei Leadership Team as the SFCI Chair. 

The three SFCI Pilots serve as Industry Pioneers for developing evolved standard operating practices at their respective facilities:
