New Social Network Focused on Engagement and Collaboration in Business Sustainability
November 7, 2011
Enablon, a developer of sustainability management software, has launched a social network called Wizness which allows people and organizations to collaborate on solving the business challenges around sustainability.
Wizness, a take on “Wise Business”, has been in private beta for the last three months and is now officially open to the public. It already comprises more than 250 member companies, news content, and discussion groups on topics ranging from supply chain management, energy, carbon and water usage to ethical business data, global rankings and much more.
Enablon says the social network came to fruition on the understanding and realization that to solve many of the most difficult sustainability challenges requires a level of collaboration and engagement well beyond traditional business practices.
"In a world where Sustainability challenges are increasingly complex and interconnected, Wizness brings organizations and people together, whether they are competitors or partners, customers or investors, to share information and collaborate for the greater good,” says Philippe Tesler, Enablon co-founder and president, North America. “We believe Wizness will be an important step toward a wiser business environment where collaboration, cooperation and engagement will lead to more responsible, robust and profitable companies."
