Univow Optimizes decisions around Waste and Carbon

Univow is a privately-owned Sustainable Management software vendor based in Toronto. Our mission is to optimize decisions around waste streams and carbon.

Univow’s products are deployed on a software-as-a-service (SAAS) basis on multiple platforms including desktops and mobile devices.

Those products – Waste Director and Carbon Commander – are lifecycle-based: they transcend mere auditing to address data gathering, analysis, employee-centric action plans, and review. Our products help managers to go beyond compliance to create competitive advantage through more sustainable decisions.

We also provide services to enable companies to implement waste reduction programs including Zero Waste programs.  With these services we also provide turn-key waste audits and support the services with our software to enable our customers to monitor and manage their waste streams.

Our Carbon reduction services include carbon footprinting of your organization and the services to guide you to carbon (and cost) savings in the near and long-terms.

Toronto (October 5th, 2016) – Univow Inc, the leader in Waste Diversion and Carbon minimization solutions, announced today the sale of its e3 Solutions’ Environmental Management Information System (EMIS) to VelocityEHS, the leading cloud environment, health, safety (EHS) and sustainability software provider. The sale expands the award-winning VelocityEHS Platform with three new cloud software products, including Air Emissions, Water Quality and Waste Compliance.

Univow’s packaged applications help organizations, from small to large, reduce their waste costs and carbon footprints. Primarily focused on Retailers, Property Managers and Financial services organizations, Univow also provides custom applications for leading edge customers that complement the Univow vision.

The sale of these non-core solutions enables Univow to focus on the Waste Diversion and Carbon sustainability fields. Furthermore the sale bolsters Univow’s balance sheet enabling growth of the Univow organization.

“It was a win-win for both organizations,” said Steve Timyan of Univow’s Board of Directors. “VelocityEHS has added three new powerful environmental management products to its platform, and we get to focus on our core business. This sets up the Univow business very nicely as it gives us the resources to grow in the hot market of waste diversion and the ever growing carbon/sustainability market.”

Univow’s Waste Director product helps organizations reduce waste at its source, optimize how excess products are deployed, minimizing waste, and enable better reporting and compliance to waste regulations.

Univow’s Carbon Commander product helps retail and commercial organizations track and manage their carbon footprints including scopes 1, 2 and 3 emissions.
