Solutions for the Emerging Low Carbon Economy

Enterprise Carbon Management

industrial emissionsManaging greenhouse gas emissions presents a new and fundamental challenge to business.  Suddenly in "carbon" (CO2 and CO2-equivalents) we have a new item that every organization must confront.  It is a cost, a risk, and perhaps an opportunity.  Carbon is everywhere:  in the supply chain, in processing and manufacturing, in offices and call centers, in employee work habits and executive travel, and in the packaging and final disposal of products.

The Emerging Low Carbon Economy

To reduce global warming, governments are moving to put a price on carbon (via cap-and-trade, taxes or other means.)  Leading corporations (like Walmart) are starting to demand that suppliers document the environmental impact and carbon footprint of their products.  Legislation now under consideration may soon require carbon documentation for all products sold in Europe.  And both consumers and employees want to see companies taking action on climate change.  The cost of carbon has nowhere to go but up, and the need to account for and reduce carbon emissions has nowhere to go but up.  Are you ready?

Carbon management is also an opportunity:  Companies that respond most effectively will have a competitive advantage.  But gathering the necessary data can become an overwhelming task, particularly when faced with the challenges of diverse geographic locations, complex organizational structures and a variety of utility and carbon sources.  The rapidly changing reporting landscape and audit requirements complicate the task.  Carbon accounting and management is new challenge requiring new tools.
