GreenKPI Overview

Capture your resource use and share your good work with stakeholders.

GreenKPI developed a pricing model that is suitable for large corporations and small enterprises. Administrators manage sustainability at the location and/or department level. A small business may need only one administrator, while a multinational may need a thousand administrators.

Sustainability is important for businesses for efficiency gains and reduced costs while mitigating environmental and social impacts.

Any size business will improve profits with efficiency gains by completing the supplied actions. The dashboard provides for quick and easy monitoring of resource use. The automated reports are useful to share with customers and companies, especially when tendering for contracts.

Essential will have  a mobile version for flexibility. Adding photos and massaging on the go will be a breeze.

GreenKPI’s sustainability topics are based on the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI).

Sustainability actions are tagged to show alignment when they conform with standards and accreditation’s such as the Sustainability Development Goals (SDG) and accreditations such as B Corp, allowing reports to be refined by selecting tags.

Essential will be available across platforms and devices.

Essential is designed around the Internet of Things (IOT), using APIs to exchange data.

Essential uses a search function using keywords for actions.
The admin chooses which actions to delegate and who will be assigned.
The staff member receives a link to the action in GreenKPI and a calendar link for the due date.
The link opens GreenKPI displaying information on how to complete the action.
Messages can be exchanged and the due date adjusted.

The supplier link to a third party supplier will be shown if available.

The actions are designed to provide practical guidance on reducing environmental and social impact with efficiencies and exchanging potential harmful practices and products with safe options.

Social impact is improved with guiding practices that ensure the safety and well-being of staff and the broader community.

Economic sustainability is achieved with risk management, staff retention, resource availability, supply chain circularity with reduced loss of materiality value and increased sales when social expectations are met and brand trust is established.
