Sustainability as Software Platform

Just listened to a Webinar by two companies, Verdantix and Enviance, that was clear, concise, and helpful to understanding how sustainability can work within organizations to address energy, carbon, water, waste, and health and safety requirements in the context of information requirements.

These are discussed in the context of sustainable business software platforms to support the achievement of business benefits summarized as decision confidence, risk reduction, reputation management, competitive advantage, sustainability  management by results, and cost savings. I suggest that conversations with business executives about sustainability address many or all of the above benefits in order to get their attention. They are the benefits of transformation.

David Metcalfe’s part of the presentation was excellent as was Greg Scandrett’s introduction. Greg is VP of Product Development at Enviance and David Metcalfe is CEO of Verdantix.
