From Open Sustainability
What is open-sustainability?
open-sustainability is an approach applying best practice principles from modern software development and management consulting to drive sustainable development in complex organizations. Using open source software we are creating Sustainability 2.0, or as we call it FISDev, a Framework for Integrated sustainable development, a tool providing a software framework for Integrated Sustainable Development. We are also developing an open-source Governance Framework for Sustainability applicable in any organization. Combined, this sustainability governance framework and the FISDev tool support a collaborative, open source approach to sustainable development or simply sustainability, that anyone can use.
Companies can use the open-sustainability approach to introduce better sustainability practices into their business models, share success stories and work with partners and customers in a collaborative fashion. Government organizations can use open-sustainability to supplement existing frameworks, share information across departments and national boundaries and better engage citizens. Through open-sustainability, individuals have a chance to contribute to best practices and help shape the behavior of both Companies and Government.
What you can do
We are developing a community to collaboratively build a Framework for Sustainable Development as well as a resource library for organizations applying the framework. Everyone is encouraged to create an account, edit an article or have a new idea? Then login and create a new article.

Open sourced sustainability solutions
FISDev is built on a product called omCollab
, a completely free and open source technology for Enterprise 2.0 that has been built as part of the open methodology project. Anyone can download
omCollab and use it to build collaborative solutions within their own organizations and integrate to FISDev.
