Last Updated: June 1, 2019

A wide variety of companies use sustainability software to minimize their impact on the environment.

By measuring and managing operations, manufacturers, fleets, utilities, governments, real estate companies and other organizations can reduce their carbon footprints and responsibly preserve the environment and the well-being of their company.

Several vendors offer solutions to manage sustainability performance—This guide will educate buyers on important considerations before making a decision.

What Is Sustainability Software?

Sustainability software helps companies manage all the data produced through their operations—from manufacturing, building maintenance, fleet management etc.—to evaluate their sustainability and impact on the environment.

To achieve this, massive amounts of data must be collected about utility bills, facility energy and water usage, fuel costs and other sources. Software analyzes this data to provide performance management dashboards and benchmarks to optimize efficiency, remain compliant to regulations and maintain corporate responsibility.

Sustainability is a practice that can offer long-term foresight into an organization's health and longevity, but also shows a commitment to social responsibility—thriving as a business while leaving the environment better for future generations.

Common Features of Sustainability Software

Several advanced features are included in sustainability software to gather and analyze data and perform audits. These may include:

Data retrieval Solutions offer multiple ways to collect data: importing bills directly from a utility, connecting to energy meters, monitoring carbon emissions and providing integrations with other systems in the enterprise.
Performance management Refers to any features that analyze data to reveal how a company's sustainability practices are working. Key aspects include access to customizable dashboards and benchmarking, which compares an organization's sustainability or energy management performance against established guidelines or other companies.
Normalization Normalization helps to find averages in, for example, weather, so that changes in temperature each year can be accounted for. In facilities management, occupancy can also be normalized to show how tenants or employees impact energy usage so companies can budget and forecast more accurately.
Compliance management Tracks initiatives designed to help companies meet regulatory demands for energy use, waste reduction or carbon emissions. By creating a trail of actions and results, internal or external audits are made easier with templates that quickly prove compliance.
Document management Store all of your relevant documents about sustainability practices, such as reports, audit sheets, equipment/facility documents and more for easy retrieval.
Reporting Generate reports on any utility or energy usage or costs associated with sustainability programs to spot trends or inefficiencies.

What Type of Buyer Are You?

Sustainability software is used by many different types of professionals. Some of these include:

  • Corporate social responsibility (CSR) managers are becoming common now that companies are more aware and concerned about how their operations and practices impact the environment. These professionals manage internal and external initiatives, using sustainability software to assign tasks, track performance and produce reports to convey success of programs.
  •   
  • Supply chain managers have the unique challenge of sourcing materials and labor from various suppliers and vendors globally, and in doing so, are concerned with a long list of external factors that can impact their efficiency—scarcity of resources, climate, conflicts etc. Software can help ensure their supply chain is sustainable as well as ethical, avoiding negative impacts from their methods of procuring resources by alerting users of important sustainability data about suppliers.
  •   
  • Environmental health and safety managers are advocates for employees and the environment, and work to ensure safe, sustainable working conditions, as well as preventing damage to the environment by organizations. They also help companies follow carbon emission, waste and safety regulations, and use sustainability software to gather data and produce reports to provide compliance.
  •   
  • Facilities managers need to monitor energy use in their buildings, which involves gathering data from disparate systems across the organization to identify where energy is being wasted. By building connections with these building inf
