What the Judges Said…
“A very robust software solution that is important to the future of integrating environmental performance into corporate strategy. Greenstone is a strong contender for managing your environmental impacts.”
Greenstone Enterprise is a software solution for organizations to define, measure, manage, and report the non-financial aspects of their business. The modular solution covers environment, corporate social responsibility frameworks, health and safety, and supply chain. Users are provided with a complete picture of their sustainability performance, granular data, and user-friendly analytics, Greenstone says. The solution enables organizations to reach their sustainability goals, reduce their carbon emissions, report against international CSR frameworks, and understand their impacts.
Data delivered through a team of subject matter experts means that Greenstone Enterprise users can get meaningful results, enabling them to make informed business decisions, monitor outcomes and revenue savings, and also report against any client-specific KPI.
Greenstone’s Environment module architecture provides clients with granular analysis and rollup capabilities across all levels of the organization. The node-view capability allows data to be grouped and viewed in unlimited formats. The Initiatives Savings module enables users to track energy, carbon, and financial savings against environmental initiatives from different sources including electricity, water, waste and paper. Initiatives can be tracked against targets and viewed at relevant aggregated organizational levels.
The SupplierPortal module helps organizations understand the sustainability of their supply chains. By gathering and analyzing supplier information through a suite of tools, SupplierPortal enables users to monitor and benchmark the environmental performance of their supplier network.
Greenstone’s Enterprise software is used across more than 100 countries globally, and has data from 14,765 sites, has assurance from over 60 external audits, and aligns with over 30 international frameworks. Since the product’s inception, 41 million metric tons of CO2 equivalents are under management.
Clif Bar started using Greenstone Enterprise in early 2015. Clif Bar uses the data to keep its carbon footprint climate neutral as well as measure and offset the CO2 emissions generated by energy use in its office, bakeries, warehouses, and from business travel. In 2015, Clif Bar made significant progress toward zero waste, measured as 90% or more diversion from landfill and incinerators, and achieved 73% waste diversion at its bakeries, 88% at its distribution centers, and 89% at its headquarters, where it has an office, a childcare center, a warehouse and a new innovation center.
