MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – December 1, 2021 – Verdigris has been named a silver winner in the 11th annual Best in Biz Awards, the only independent business awards program judged each year by prominent editors and reporters from top-tier publications in North America. Verdigris was honored in the Most Innovative Product of the Year – Enterprise category for its AI-powered smart building management platform that optimizes energy consumption for organizations with data, insights and automation.

“Excessive energy waste within the enterprise is a global problem that is entirely preventable,” said Mark Chung, co-founder & CEO, Verdigris. “We’re proud to offer a solution that helps enterprises dramatically reduce their energy usage and spending, and are honored to receive this Best in Biz award for our innovation.”
