Corporations all over the globe are finally starting to wake up to the promises of green business intelligence (BI). As large and small enterprises fine-tune their governance initiatives, they are noticing much room for improvement when it comes to being a better corporate citizen. In the coming years, the ability to conduct an environmentally sustainable and eco-friendly business will be a primary means to bolstering the corporate governance portfolio. Green BI will be a key driver and strategic enabler in helping companies achieve a lessened environmental footprint and be perceived as an eco-friendly entity. Green BI concepts should not be new to anybody; for years, manufacturing companies have been going green by using intelligent methodologies and technology to measure and improve their raw waste output and report emissions compliance to regulatory agencies. However, green BI promises to give the business community an increased level of control and intelligence into the consumption and waste patterns of all aspects of their business - a paradigm shift that is being welcomed by customers, government agencies, community activists and shareholders alike.
