Summit Energy Launches Online Carbon Management Portal

March 1, 2010

LOUISVILLE, Ky., March 1 /PRNewswire/ — Summit Energy Services, a leading global sustainability and energy management firm, has introduced Sustainability Portal on DV, an online enterprise carbon accounting (ECA) portal for sustainability management. Summit’s enterprise wide portal provides an online platform from which companies can understand and manage relevant environmental metrics and impacts, including carbon, water and waste.

“Summit’s services extend far beyond providing a template for basic carbon reporting – we steer companies through the increasingly complicated and rigorous reporting and benchmarking process to maximize and streamline sustainability efforts,” said John Hoekstra, Director of Sustainability for Summit Energy. “Summit provides a completely automated ECA solution without the need for software updates, internal IT involvement or the outlay of additional time and resources. In effect, companies working with Summit are simultaneously more informed and less involved.”

“Dependable sustainability and ECA reporting depends upon accurate data, which requires time and expertise to efficiently collect and validate prior to loading into a system,” commented Hoekstra. “Unlike software programs that pass that burden onto the end-user, Summit’s solution includes this crucial first step of gathering and verifying all pertinent data, which leverages our global data management process for utility data,” Hoekstra continued.

Summit’s experience working with companies from various industries encouraged the development of a flexible product capable of gathering and monitoring data from multiple sources, streams, and facilities. The Sustainability Portal on DV provides many services, including collecting data from multiple streams for all scopes 1, 2 & 3, communicating emerging market intelligence, developing strategic goals alongside clients, assessing portfolio opportunities and managing carbon risk. Emissions and usage can be benchmarked against baseline data or business indicators, such as production and sales metrics. Additionally, Summit’s portal provides a solid foundation for reporting emissions under emerging EPA, Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), UK Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) and similar global reporting protocols.
