“Sustainability data is a key factor in core business decisions, as well as an increasing requirement of the food and beverage value chain,” says Emily Johannes, Principal and Director of ResourceMax™ Sustainability Services for K·Coe Isom. “Accurate and comprehensive data management and analytics are a strategic imperative: we are moving beyond simple spreadsheets. No matter what the size, food and beverage companies today need to employ dedicated software tools and services that are specifically geared for data collection, multiple reporting requirements, and achieving performance goals.”
