Berlin, 16.11.2017: We’re pleased to announce that WeSustain has been nominated for the final round of this year’s StartGreen Award – the national top prize for the green founder community in Germany.

For the third time, all finalists were invited to pitch in front a jury of experts at the Berlin Ministry of Environment, and to attend the subsequent exhibition in the Network Forum, both taking place on November 16, 2017. WeSustain was able to celebrate its entry into the final after delivering a successful presentation during both the application phase and the public voting within the green community.

In 2010, we started with the goal to develop software that supports companies in their goals to become more sustainable. Our vision behind it: By using software, companies become aware of where savings or an increase in efficiency are possible. Required data is reco

rded in the system, where they are evaluated and can be used for internal and external reporting. Saving 10% in resources this way, for instance, – a realistic number in our experience – isn’t just a good development regarding

environmental impact, but also an economic factor. From this impulse, we have developed additional software tools

in recent years to further support companies in their sustainability activities, e.g. creating materiality analyses,

measuring sustainability performance, supporting audit processes or tracking supply chains. By now, more than 500 companies from all industries successfully use WeSustain software for their csr management.

The initiative “StartGreen” aims to strengthen the green founding scene in Germany and wants to connect start-ups, sponsors and investors who stand up for climate protection and sustainability in their business activities. The StartGreen Award is an initi

ative of the Borderstep Institute for Innovation and Sustainability. Patron is Federal Minister of the Environment Dr. med. Barbara Hendricks.
