The success or failure of the policy after the implementation can be best determined through the outcome and the feedback from the various stakeholders such as employee and customers. Based on the result and feedback regarding the policy, it can be said that the policy is significantly successful. This can be seen from the key performance indicators, which include 50% reuse of cartridges and toners in the first few months of implementation. Additionally, the company has been able to reduce the cost of printing by close to 13%, which shows that it is headed to the sustainability goal of 20% within the first eight weeks of implementation.
However, there is significant need to focus on the energy use since the company registered an increasing in the energy use in the past few months after the new policy. There is a need to consider using less energy consumer apparatus because the staff members are less likely to survive comfortably without taking tea in the office and using energy in the washrooms. According to Hill and Hupe (2014), there is a need to come up with a precise analysis of the cause of the increase in energy and find the most suitable way to address the issue.
COS Company employees have shown a positive attitude towards the new policy, which demonstrates that they have embraced the entire process. It confirms that the planning process and the communication of the policy were effectively done (Cook 2009, p.19). The public feedback received through the website equally demonstrated that the plan is successful. Consequently, the company can be said to have dramatically succeeded in the developing implementation of the sustainable policy.
