Measuring and managing greenhouse gas emissions has become a core focus of corporate sustainability, purchasing, and product development teams worldwide. Companies are looking to make more optimal environmental decisions. However, companies do not understand their impacts, risks, or where to focus their management effort. The emissions intelligence needed to inform and direct management decisions is largely unavailable. Furthermore, currently available carbon footprinting solutions are either difficult and costly, or else provide limited utility for companies looking to manage the environmental impact of their operations and products.
An interesting job came up in my Google Alert today (not for jobs!). Data will be an important part of emissions reduction and nobody has a good idea about doing this. Selecting what some people say one of the best programming frameworks currently; in Ruby on Rails, EcoSynergy is doing something right.
Who is working on something like this for the impending Australian emissions trading market?
