Sustainability Goes Beyond Environmentalism with Actuate

London, UK – September 23rd , 2008 – Actuate Corporation (NASDAQ: ACTU), the leader in delivering Rich Internet Applications Without Limits™, today unveiled Actuate for Sustainability Management – a solution that enables organisations to track and measure key sustainability metrics in an easy-to-use, intuitive and customisable format. The new programme offers a framework of metrics designed to help organisations build best practices and enhance sustainability and is based on Actuate’s Performancesoft Suite and Actuate BIRT products which delivers rich, dynamic interactive dashboards, sustainability scorecards and strategy maps.

Actuate for Sustainability Management takes organisations beyond environmental sustainability by helping them identify, assess, and respond to social, economic, and environmental risks and opportunities. The application has over 100 built-in metrics available to organisations, enabling them to effectively manage and measure key indicators such as employee satisfaction, environmental impact, access to training and education and community engagement. In addition to these built-in metrics, Actuate offers companies the ability to custom-build metrics for their specific sustainability needs. All of the measures can be tailored and scaled for employees, governmental and organisational compliance units and external stakeholders, depending on the specific goals of the sustainability program.

“We enable our customers to take sustainable thinking to the next level,” said Seema Haji, senior technical marketing manager at Actuate. “Sustainability means so much more than just ‘going green’ and is proving to be an enduring method of running a successful business. To make an organisation truly sustainable over time, managers not only need to consider quantitative metrics like greenhouse gas emissions and water usage, but they also need to be able to identify, measure and report on other more qualitative aspects of their operations such as employee satisfaction and corporate philanthropy.”

By implementing sustainability management, organisations can monitor, track and report on environmental impact measures such as carbon credits purchased and used; average water consumption by facility; and average electrical consumption per employee. By implementing Actuate for Sustainability Management organisations extend their sustainability across all operations to maximise transparency and accountability to create valuable insight and enduring best practices.

Actuate will hold a free webinar featuring Actuate for Sustainability Management on Thursday, September 25th , 2008 at 8:30 a.m. PDT. To learn more and to sign for the free webinar visit .
