Chicago/Paris, January 20, 2012 – Enablon, one of the world’s leading Sustainability Management software providers, will host a webinar featuring Accenture and Forrester Research Inc., on Jan. 25th, 2012 at 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. EST and 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. GMT. The panel will discuss best practices for using integrated Sustainability Platforms in the normal course of business.

Increasingly, enterprises are turning to software systems to monitor and manage resource and energy consumption and associated carbon footprints, characterized as new classes of assets and liabilities on their corporate balance sheets. As companies get more sophisticated in their analysis and usage of energy & carbon data, and they involve a broader set of potential stakeholders, the scope of the software systems increases from facility to company to ecosystem-wide. Additionally, the sponsors and owners of such systems shift from EH&S to operations to financial management.

In the webinar, guest speakers Mike Nicholus, director, Global Environment Programs, Accenture, Chris Mines, senior vice president, research director, Forrester Research, and David Hoffman, product manager, Enablon will highlight the next steps in the evolution of sustainability management, and predict how companies will increasingly embed such systems into their best practices for managing and reporting on business performance.

The complimentary webinar will focus on:

  • The new trends and challenges of sustainability performance management
  • Driving business performance with integrated sustainability platforms
  • In practice: the ways in which Accenture manages sustainability and climate change
