April 29, 2008 - SAS is helping organizations measure and manage their environmental impact.


SAS announced SAS for Sustainability Management introducing the decision-support software platform for identifying strategies that effectively address complex environmental, social and economic situations while achieving stakeholder objectives.


"While most executives agree that a green strategy is a good idea, few know how to value or prioritize their initiatives," said Kimberly Knickle, practice director, emerging agenda, Manufacturing Insights, an IDC company. "They struggle with the business case, waiting to implement strategies until outcomes can be predicted more reliably."


SAS for Sustainability Management, based on the SAS Enterprise Intelligence Platform, uses the Global Reporting Initiative framework to report on triple bottom line indicators. These indicators relate to the three spheres of sustainability - environmental, social and economic, using SAS' predictive abilities to validate strategies, identify causal relationships, forecast improvement scenarios and drive innovation.
