Planet Positive uses CloudApps to bring sustainability to businesses worldwide
LONDON 28 MAY – CloudApps, the leader in sustainability management, today announced Planet Positive as its latest customer. Planet Positive’s worldwide customer base, which includes Land Securities and Deloitte, will now be able to use CloudApps’ platform to help drive their sustainability certification process to capture and reduce metrics such as energy, fuel and water usage, and save money. By the end of the year, Planet Positive plans to roll out the new platform to its 200 customers.
Built on Force.com, CloudApps operates on the world’s most energy efficient platform, making it an obvious choice for Planet Positive as it drives down energy usage and lowers energy spend. CloudApps software will be used to capture data, creating online sustainability and carbon footprint reports. The reports will be benchmarked against the Planet Positive Protocol, a demanding set of targets to chart progress against individual green targets. From this report a reduction action plan is drawn up to highlight where improvements can be made.
Steve Malkin, CEO and Founder of Planet Positive, looks forward to the journey ahead: “Planet Positive helps every business experience the benefits of sustainability. Planet Positive certification is designed to be fast, affordable, and accessible. Our objective is to enable every business to experience the benefits of sustainability.

Peter Grant, CEO CloudApps wants the partnership to deliver a larger, sustained impact on businesses and attitudes to green issues: “To be economically sustainable businesses need to be environmentally sustainable.

The combination of Planet Positive’s certifiable brand and awareness with CloudApps ability to capture metrics precisely will help organisations worldwide in swift and cost effective manner.”
