Fenner Plc is a world leader in reinforced polymer technology.
To understand its risks and impacts across the Group’s global operations, Fenner implemented Greenstone to calculate, manage and report its environmental impact. Through the implementation of Greenstone’s Environment module, Fenner now has a transparent, robust and audit-ready process for managing its utility consumption, business travel and carbon emissions.
Following a successful UK pilot, Fenner has implemented a global roll-out of Greenstone to all of its operations, with active users in 80 locations across 16 countries. In addition, Fenner has rolled out Greenstone’s Health & Safety module, providing the Group with an online process for recording key H&S metrics at each site and enabling aggregated analysis and reporting.
Fenner Group HSE Coordinator, Paul Sexton, said; “Greenstone's solution makes the whole process of measuring and tracking our emissions quicker, easier and more cost-effective. We are able to track and analyse our carbon emissions across all geographies, sites and business units within the Group and meet both our internal monitoring and external reporting requirements. Using the same system to consolidate our H&S data is also a win for the business; saving our staff time and ensuring that we can easily access accurate and timely data in a single solution.”
Since 2008, Fujitsu has used Greenstone’s software and supporting services to collect, manage, monitor and reporting environment and CSR data across its global business.
The data captured from the 400 Fujitsu sites is used to report emissions centrally to the Fujitsu Headquarters in Japan. This data forms the basis of the emissions reporting included in Fujitsu Group’s annual Environmental report and other reporting such as Business in the Community, GRI and ISO 26000.
G4S is a world leading security solutions group, with over 625,000 employees delivering services to governments and private sector clients in more than 120 countries including operations in Europe, Middle East, Asia Pacific, Africa, Latin America and North America.
G4S has implemented Greenstone’s software to monitor their carbon emissions across multi-country regulatory requirements.
G4S required an easy-to-use platform to delegate data collection to country and operating unit levels across the business. The data collection process is simplified as environmental coordinators around the world are able to upload data in a consistent format to one centralised place.
Greenstone’s software then automatically calculates carbon emissions at multiple organisational and business unit levels using both the GHG Protocol and, where relevant, national calculation methodologies. Due to the global scale of their operations, G4S need to be prepared for localised compliance regulations as they come into force. By working with Greenstone they can keep abreast of regulatory developments and minimise potential compliance risks.
All of this means G4S can apply greater focus on identifying targeted carbon reduction initiatives and local country teams are able to set their own reduction targets and monitor performance on an ongoing basis.

Formed in 2017 from the merger between Janus Capital Group and Henderson Global Investors, Janus Henderson Investors is committed to adding value through active management. Its expertise encompasses the major asset classes, it has investment teams situated around the world, and it serves individual and institutional investors globally. It has US$330.8bn in assets under management, more than 2000 employees and offices in 27 cities worldwide.
With the regulatory environment surrounding carbon emissions and expectations for voluntary reporting, Henderson adopted Greenstone’s software for environmental reporting.
This enabled them to further assure the integrity of their measurement, and analysis by any location and emission source to any specified time period. It also allowed them to demonstrate year on year granular performance for carbon emissions.
This all provided a new analytical perspective on Henderson’s original core functions in facilities. This included monitoring performance with respect to waste management and managing other legal reporting obligations including the EU Directive on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE).
As the UK’s biggest university, the University of Manchester is under increasing pressure to disclose transparent and accurate carbon and consumption data. In support of its commitment to the environment and local community, the University of Manchester has set an ambitious 5-year Environmental Sustainability Plan.

In support of the NHS’s carbon reduction strategy and the targets laid out in the Climate Change Act, Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals (SWBH) NHS Trusthas developed a Carbon Management Plan (CMP). The CMP focuses on measuring, monitoring and reducing the Trust’s carbon emissions 15% by 2016/17, alongside engaging with staff and stakeholders.
To assist with meeting these reduction targets and other reporting requirements, SWBH NHS Trust has implemented Greenstone’s software. The use of Greenstone significantly reduces the burden of data gathering across multiple hospital sites, enabling the Trust to focus on analysing the data and identifying carbon reduction opportunities.
Through the use of Greenstone, SWBH NHS Trust can now upload resource consumption data each month and calculate carbon emissions against a continually updated database of internationally recognised methodologies and emission factors. This has led to the solution becoming the central solution to manage data across all 3 hospitals in the Trust, relieving the administrative burden and enabling the team to focus on analysing results, meeting multiple reporting requirements and achieving reduction targets.
Greenstone has provided the SWBH NHS Trust with a consistency in its approach to calculating emissions. In addition, carefully defining the structure of the Trust within the solution and determining the availability and quality of each data set, has created the robust results required in order to help meet the NHS carbon reduction targets.
This solution can be rolled-out to any NHS Trust or related institution to improve efficiency in data collection, carbon measurement and reporting. It can be relied upon to produce immediate and meaningful results and can lead to an increased level of understanding and engagement in the overall NHS carbon reduction strategy.
