There is heavy pressure on businesses to reduce emissions, and many organizations struggle to comply. Although many companies now have sustainable targets woven into their organizational mission statements, tracking and managing emissions is still evolving. Fortunately, there is now powerful software that can gather and interpret data about buildings across an entire energy and asset building portfolio.
Carbon Emission Reduction
The list of entities who want proof of an organization's efforts to reduce carbon footprint grows every day including:
- Federal, state, and local governments
- Investors and marketplaces (Nasdaq, NYSE and others)
- Customers and employees
- Industry groups and foreign businesses
To benchmark and show evidence to the growing list of entities and people that expect a lowered carbon footprint, organizations have to start tracking and comparing energy data across all of their buildings. This intelligence lets companies pinpoint facilities that require the most attention, prioritize reduction strategies, and help prove that they are making a difference.
Key Challenges in Tracking Carbon Emissions
Unfortunately, data is largely siloed, and the responsibility for gathering and interpreting energy data internally is not always clear. Lack of oversight, expertise, and practical tools all prevent companies from reporting reduction efforts well—or at all.
This is where Carbon Manager™ makes a real difference. We released this robust Smart Building tool to enable enterprises to effortlessly quantify their carbon footprint and to measure and report the impact of efforts to reduce their overall emissions. We also designed Carbon Manager™ to be implemented without incurring capital costs by accessing data from assets that you already own.
The jewel of this tool is how it makes complex data easier to decipher, with at-a-glance dashboards highlighting metrics you need for your unique organization. Below is a typical dashboard many clients use as a daily overview.
