Carbonetworks Launches Platform to Help Companies Manage Sustainability Performance

August 18, 2009

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 18 /PRNewswire/ — Carbonetworks today launched the Performance Management Platform, the next generation of Software-as-a-Service for developing and executing strategic energy, greenhouse gases (GHG) and sustainability initiatives. The platform, which includes three scalable solutions, is the first-of-its-kind to offer businesses, governments and organizations a comprehensive solution for managing carbon, GHG, energy, waste and water.

“In conversations with customers, it’s clear that business are approaching climate change as a business management issue, not a traditional environmental issue,” said Keith Modesitt, director of product management for Carbonetworks. “The Carbonetworks Performance Management Platform allows our customers to move beyond compliance reporting and create actionable strategies for managing carbon, GHG, energy, waste and water. Thus helping companies reduce bottom line costs, while also decreasing their impact on the environment.”

Specifically, the new Carbonetworks Performance Management Platform utilizes proven business intelligence technologies while integrating robust performance management capabilities across three main solution areas:

  • Carbonetworks Carbon Information Manager (CIM) tool, which includes both inventory and reporting capabilities to accurately measure and develop standard and customizable reports on carbon, GHG, energy, waste and water usage across the organization.
  • Carbonetworks Enterprise, which provides new analytical capabilities to execute scenario planning, risk assessment, forecasting and other performance management activities to fully understand the impact of energy, GHG and carbon emissions. These analytical solutions enable the development of measurable sustainability and energy reduction initiatives across an organization.
  • Carbonetworks Connect(TM), which helps customers not only create measurable sustainability initiatives, but also connects them to the partners who can help achieve these initiatives through energy and carbon emissions reductions.

In addition to the launch of the Carbonetworks Performance Management Platform, the company has announced its new Carbonetworks Professional Services (CPS). This group will add value beyond the new platform, by providing consulting to customers to help them understand current carbon reporting compliances like the UK’s Carbon Reduction Commitment, while helping them solve immediate technical problems such as data migration or interoperability and preparing them for future platform updates.

“We’re excited to offer customers and partners one software platform for everything from basic footprinting, to running their GHG, energy and sustainability initiatives like a business,” said Modesitt. “Our professional services group is a value-added resource for our customers who may have additional questions about developing and maintaining GHG, energy and emissions strategies.”
