Two Finnish multinationals have begun using new software to manage and report on their sustainability performance.
Finnforest, which is one of Europe’s biggest wood products groups, and the manufacturer Wärtsilä Corporation are both now using the EnQ CSM software to gather, consolidate and report their non-financial data.
The web-based CSM software – CSM stands for Corporate Sustainability Management – collates data both at individual sites and across the company, and is compatible with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) sustainability reporting guidelines.
Sonja Martikainen, VP, Environmental Affairs and Quality at Finnforest, says: "The only way to manage environmental issues reliably and cost efficiently is by using appropriate tools for data management and reporting."
GRI strategic development director Paul Hohnen comments: "GRI welcomes Proventia Solutions CSM software as an important contribution to emerging sustainability management tools that drive continuous social, environmental and economic improvement, and enable these to be communicated to all stakeholders in an exciting and compelling manner".
The two companies will be using EnQ CSM both for their internal reporting and for handling information requests from outside parties such as investors.
