Wellington, 27 March 2014 - PE INTERNATIONAL’s Enterprise Sustainability Performance Solution ‘SoFi’ was named as Top Product of the Year 2014 by Environmental Leader, a leading environmental, energy, and sustainability website.

“The caliber of the entries was impressive and truly showed the innovation taking place in the industry today,” said Paul Nastu, publisher of the Environmental Leader. “The SoFi software from PE INTERNATIONAL was a standout among the submissions for the many environmental benefits it helps companies achieve.”

The Environmental Leader Product & Project Awards is a program recognizing excellence in products and services that provide companies with energy and environmental benefits. “We are very excited about this recognition”, said Barbara Nebel, Managing Director of PE Australasia, “because the scores were determined by a panel of independent judges who are top experts in the field of sustainability”. The list of 20 judges includes Sustainability leaders from companies like PUMA, Autodesk, Microsoft, Anheuser-Busch and GlaxoSmithKline.

The Environmental Leader Product & Project Awards judges highlighted that “SoFi scores in terms of ease of use, adaptability (customizable) and the results that it can deliver across aspects like energy, water, GHG emissions, safety, compliance, etc. This offers industry leading sustainability services and expertise with a strong compliment of software solutions.”
