A new software that can track carbon management is coming into effect, and companies such as mine can monitor how much energy and carbon we are using. Since carbon is becoming a measure of efficiency, for my company and other companies, by understanding were we can cut carbon, it will save us money and protect the environment.
Software called Enterprise Carbon and Energy Management (ECEM) will be used by my company to check on the energy and carbon use and consumption throughout a business day, and this software will work similarly to other tracking systems used by my company.
By tracking and managing carbon costs and lowering our use of energy, this will help my people look into where we can cut down on energy use without sacrificing efficiency or production. If there’s even a chance that energy costs can be lowered, then the energy bills for the company would lower with them and we’d save money.
In addition, I’ve noticed that more and more stakeholders and customers are jumping on this software, and public opinion seems to be swaying towards using less carbon and being environmentally friendly.
If I have to report my carbon footprint and my own plans to reduce it to my customers I want that number to be low and the goal for reduction doable. Nothing is worse than an army of environmentalists demanding change!
Climate change can also be bad for business, with temperature extremes damaging or even destroying the materials companies need to make products, so learning ways to prevent and deal with climate change is often a must if we want to stay in business.
In the Eyes of the People!
With more and more businesses shifting towards climate-friendly business models, some of my competitors are even pushing their environmentalism as part of their brand. They are making fierce reductions and keeping themselves both transparent and accountable.
Even the government is stepping in on the companies that refuse to bow to pressure, with various acts and regulations that require heavy offender businesses to make some changes or get shut down.
By adopting carbon tracking software such as (ECEM’s) into businesses, companies like my own will be able to not only save money and protect the environment but also even improve our relations with customers and improve the sales of our products.
With tracking software already being implemented into single facilities or buildings for test runs before expanding outwards throughout the entire company, the desire and the use of this software are reaching an all-time high. My company will be using it and its benefits, to make my company a shining example of what the world’s companies should be.
