Basware Awarded Green Apple Award for Environmental Best Practice
Basware, a provider of purchase-to-pay (P2P) solutions, has been awarded an internationally-recognised Green Apple Award for its Global electronic invoicing (e-invoicing) Open Network. The award, which attracted more than 500 nominations, will be presented at a ceremony at the UK House of Commons later this year.
The Global e-invoicing Open Network promotes connectivity between buyers and suppliers helping companies to switch to e-invoicing, so they can bypass the vast amounts of paper invoicing that they produce each year to help them achieve Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) or ‘green’ targets. The Open Network, which connects buyers and suppliers by forming interoperability agreements with local and global e-invoicing partners, reduces the need to print, post, process, manually key-in, store and dispose of paper invoices.
“With the rise of the green agenda over the last five or so years, businesses across the globe are making it their responsibility to reduce their carbon footprint, so it’s fantastic to see that the environmental benefits of e-invoicing are being recognised as part of this,” said Andrew Jesse, country manager at Basware UK.
