What the Judges Said…
“An industry-leading platform enabling organizations to create a positive impact and execute their sustainability strategies. The product is useful across multiple industries and operational situations. Maybe big data can save the world.”
Enablon is a comprehensive enterprise EHS, risk, and sustainability management software platform with technology, content, and services intended to help leading global organizations manage risks, ensure compliance, and continually improve performance and operational excellence.
Built over a 17-year period with a single integrated database and software architecture, Enablon is used to calculate and predict energy and water consumption, GHG emissions, waste generation, and chemical discharges to help organizations meet sustainability goals. Clients can collect large volumes of data and leverage it for insights and analytics that identify cost-reduction and process optimization opportunities in areas such as EHS, sustainability, operations, product stewardship, chemical management, and supply chain.
In 2017, product enhancements included the platform’s GHG model, which can now calculate and report GHG emissions using the new market-based methodology in addition to the traditional location-based approach. Sustainability and environmental managers can provide the market-based emissions figures to CDP and other reporting standards that require them.
The fully cloud-enabled platform also has a data interoperability tool that helps to integrate data from external systems with Enablon data based on the OData protocol. Data connections enable advanced analytics to improve environmental management and reduce energy consumption, the company says. In addition, the calculation engine is now much faster, processing millions of data entries such as air emissions data from petroleum refiners to help companies comply with environmental regulations.
Major multinationals and numerous small and medium-sized enterprises in more than 160 countries use Enablon solutions. A third-party study found that, on average, an organization experienced risk-adjusted total benefits of close to $20 million and ROI of 270% with Enablon. Asif Mauda, head of EHS IT at Teva Pharmaceutical, says that Enablon solutions help them ensure safety and regulatory compliance: “Data collection takes us 60% less time than before. We are able to get very fast results and very accurate data around our safety environments, safety events.”
