Calculate your carbon emissions
Organisations already capture most of the information they need to calculate carbon emissions. They just generally do this through a variety of systems. For example, procurement systems can identify how much fuel is used in vehicles, and the cost and kilowatts of electricity used, while travel and expense systems may capture the distance and cost of air travel.
Because TechnologyOne customers use our fully integrated enterprise solutions, they are easily able to capture this information and compile it into a format that effectively represents their carbon footprint.
When organisations normally measure and report information, it's historical so they cannot address any identified problems. With TechnologyOne Business Intelligence, not only can an organisation meet its reporting requirements, it can also look at information in real-time so that it can adjust its behaviour to start reducing carbon emissions immediately.
But it's not just about reducing emissions; there can be real and direct benefits to an organisation. By acting on this kind of information, organisations can see where there is waste and act accordingly. Real cost savings can be achieved by reducing inputs, such as electricity, fuel, water, gas, etc.
Combining real-time monitoring with a strategic solution such as TechnologyOne Performance Planning will help organisations predict information and put effective strategies in place to improve their carbon footprint into the future.
