Fortune 500 Consultancy AECOM Partners with Next Generation Sustainability Software Leader FigBytes

The developer of a next-generation sustainability/CSR software platform, FigBytes announces the establishment of a Preferred Partner relationship with multi-national consultancy and sustainability services leader AECOM.
GATINEAU, Quebec - April 25, 2016 - PRLog -- The developer of a next-generation sustainability/CSR software platform, Quebec-based FigBytes, was delighted to announce in a recent webinar, with more than 200 registered sustainability and CSR professionals, the establishment of a Preferred Partner relationship with multi-national consultancy and sustainability services leader AECOM.

FigBytes is the first software company to bring a product to market that moves beyond 1990s EHS (environmental, health and safety) compliance approaches to integrate environmental sustainability and social responsibility directly into a company's core strategy, brand, performance and engagement.

FigBytes Co-CEO Colin Grant, who has attended many Sustainability/CSR conferences for well over 20 years, including presenting at the most recent Globe conference in Vancouver, was the lead presenter in the webinar and stated, "It is clear at Globe that leading companies have moved far beyond compliance to forward-looking strategy and brand relevant sustainability and CSR, yet the software industry and analysts have responded by bolting another 'S' onto the acronym 'EHS' or another module on top of software designed for a different era. What's the next acronym? EHSS&CSR? FigBytes is engineered from the bottom-up for the 21st century and can link data from any part of an organisation via internal performance and strategy views. AECOM have recognised our leadership within the software industry and we now have a worldwide partner for implementations, which increases our capacity enormously."

Craig Riley, AECOM's Practice Leader for Corporate Advisory & Sustainability Services and Technical Practice Group Lead, was a featured speaker in the webinar. Craig provided perspectives about how the software and approach is more than just another tool in the sustainability toolbox. "FigBytes is a new, more efficient and impactful way of visioning and managing sustainability programs," he said, "which enables the connections in the often disconnected effort to align strategy and implementation and data and performance."
