Greenstone publishes 2023 UN Global Compact Communication on Progress

Greenstone publishes 2023 UN Global Compact Communication on ProgressGreenstone has published its tenth annual Communication on Progress (COP), reaffirming its dedication to integrating the UN Global Compact and its principles into our company's strategy, culture, and day-to-day operations. 

Greenstone was acquired by EHS software leader Cority in May 2023. This report reflects Greenstone’s 2022 GHG footprint and activities pre-acquisition for the period 1 January – 31 December 2022.

As part of the Cority acquisition, Greenstone will be working with the Sustainability Committee and senior leadership teams in each business to align our sustainability goals and set a future strategy.

In 2022, our global team grew to over 50 staff and we continue to expand the client base using our award-winning solutions globally.

Greenstone had its 2030 science-based emissions reduction target formally approved in 2020 and continues to track and monitor our progress towards this commitment to ensure it is consistent with levels required to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). We report on this progress in our 2022 Communication on Progress. Greenstone’s approved science-based target and Tech Zero commitments will be reviewed in the context of the Cority acquisition to outline a strategy for 2023 and beyond.

With this Communication on Progress, we continue to demonstrate our commitment to making the UN Global Compact and its principles part of the strategy, culture and day-to-day operations of our company. We also continue to demonstrate our commitment to engaging in collaborative projects which advance the broader development goals of the United Nations.
