Greenstone’s software awarded Sustainability Product of the Year 2019
Today, the Business Intelligence Group named Greenstone’s software solution ‘Sustainability Product of the Year’ in the 2019 Sustainability Awards program. The Sustainability Awards honour people, teams and organisations who have made sustainability an integral part of their business practice or overall mission.
This prestigious award specifically recognises Greenstone’s sustainability framework mapping functionality enabling organisations to consolidate reporting, minimise risk and increase efficiency when reporting against multiple frameworks. This functionality, adding to Greenstone’s Frameworks module, facilitates the alignment of multiple frameworks and enables clients to seamlessly collect, analyse and report the required data across an organisation.
This functionality was developed in collaboration with a number of Greenstone’s clients as a result of the growing requirement for organisations to report environmental and sustainability information using a variety of international and national frameworks, such as GRI, TCFD, ISO, SDGs, CDP, SASB and DJSI. Last year, Barclays and Greenstone won this product award for its partnership to develop a new software to monitor and report environmental initiatives.
Matthew de Villiers, CEO at Greenstone comments, “We are delighted to have won this award for a 2nd consecutive year. Through this new functionality, Greenstone is not only further streamlining the sustainability reporting process for companies but is also encouraging the adoption of important frameworks, such as the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for companies to measure, report and improve on their impact on the environment and society.”
“We are proud to reward and recognize Greenstone for its sustainability efforts,” said Maria Jimenez, Chief Nominations Officer, Business Intelligence Group. “It was clear to our judges that their vision and strategy will continue to deliver results toward a cleaner, more sustainable world. Congratulations!”
