San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 29, 2011
The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) has certified the CSRware® Energy & Sustainability Management (ESM) software to be used by large and medium organizations for their sustainability reporting platform. Companies around the world are increasingly reporting to their stakeholders on sustainability resource management using the GRI as the universal standard. With many organizations using the GRI framework, CSRware determined it was imperative to receive certification. This certification confirms that the software includes accurate content and is verified by GRI. In addition, CSRware has been granted permission to use GRI copyright protected content.
GRI is aware of an increasing number of software developers and providers who already use or are planning to include GRI copyright protected content in their software and digital reporting tools. To verify the correct usage of GRI copyright protected content, GRI has established the GRI Certified Software and Tools Program. CSRware, an Organizational Stakeholder of GRI since 2006 and early adopter of the GRI as its original standard for the ESM software application, is listed as one of the few software providers in the GRI portfolio of software providers.
With GRI, CSRware can continue to assist enterprises with the complex management of sustainability management and reporting. To reduce risk and optimize costs, customers require a central repository and analytics to determine the best direction to take as an organization. Most organizations are grappling with how to measure the performance of suppliers and vendors, how to replace complex spreadsheets and what best practices will drive better business decisions.
CSRware not only addresses GRI reporting and data aggregation, the software platform delivers a Sustainable Supply Chain (SSC) product and the ability for the C-Suite to review financial results, determine investments required and assess the costs across the value chain. These capabilities are extensions of the innovative ideas first developed by CSRware in 2006, and are now key factors in why CSRware receives accolades as a customer oriented, domain leader and action oriented energy & sustainability management platform.
Since 2006, CSRware has been helping organizations better understand, account for and reduce their resource costs and environmental impact.
