GreenKPI Overview

Sign up and start delegating actions! 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 of locations and departments. A small business may need only one administrator, while a multinational may need a thousand administrators.

GreenKPI is important for businesses because the efficiency gains reduce costs while the reductions in environmental and social impact improve sales with brand trust. 

Why is sustainability important for business?

Yes. We are confident GreenKPI’s value proposition is obvious in the first 30 days, so we offer free and full access to the sustainability software for you to experience the power of GreenKPI. You will receive an email before the end of the trial to remind you subscribe and maintain your journey to sustainability.

Sustainability provides actions that lead to efficiency gains and reduced resource bills. Higher efficiencies and good choices reduce environmental and social impact, which is important for brand trust, leading to improved sales.

The actions are designed to provide practical guidance on reducing environmenatl 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.

Yes, mobile businesses use resources and have assets to track. GreenKPI can help you with providing actions to help you save on resource use and track your assets, like cars and mowers, whatever it is you are working with.

Features & Benefits

GreenKPI measures a wide range of indicators, such as energy, which includes measurements of electricity, fuel and gas use. Waste is measured including a wide range of types, according to standards on waste classifications. Some measurements are quantities of resource use, while others are qualitative to show social impact. We are regularly adding sustainability topics across environmental, social and economic indicators.

That depends on how much you do, where you do it and over what length of time. As a guide, most businesses save an average of 20% in electricity costs in their first year of transitioning to sustainability.

Yes, there is room to write text to provide any context you would like to add.

GreenKPI is a web app, meaning you sign in on a browser from any computer. We are also about to release a mobile version to maximum flexibility.

GreenKPI is based on the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), with the sustainability reports aligning with the GRI as much as possible. 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. You can refine your report by selecting the tags.

Yes, GreenKPI has an API designed to exchange data with other providers, such as wireless sensors. You can manage the data flow in settings.

The administrator searches for actions with keywords and chooses which ones to delegate and who will be assigned from the stored emails in the user list. The user receives an email with the action which has a link to the action in GreenKPI and a calendar link for the due date. The action link in the email opens a section in the GreenKPI app where information is available to complete the action, exchange messages with the administrator, change the due date, find a link to a supplier if necessary and/or available. Once the action is completed, the Complete button is selected, which updates GreenKPI’s actions status and report function.

GreenKPI tracks assets to show resource use, such as fuel use per vehicle. Our API service can be used to connect with programmes already in place.

Sustainability reports are designed to capture the good work carried out by your company and the resulting metrics showing a reduction in costs and impact. The reports are available as a URL to publish on your website or intranet with the option to save as PDF. The report is displayed as a rich infographic for ease of sharing data. Parameters such as date range, locations, departments, assets and actual resource or trends is controlled by your settings.

Manual entry is available with Optical Character Recognition (OCR) coming soon, which will automatically read your invoices.

Administrators have full access to GreenKPI to delegate actions, upload metrics, interact with the dashboard and generate reports. Users receive actions to complete.

Each action has detail on why it is helpful and how to carry it out, including a link to strategic partners to assist where required. For example, an action may include an upgrade to eco-efficient refrigeration. A link will be available to a supplier in your area if we have one to offer.
