Given the heightened priority of corporate sustainability, Verisae is positioned well to enable organizations to establish a carbon footprint baseline, outline energy management options, and provide a comprehensive corporate sustainability action plans.
Verisae delivered information the FMI Sustainability Task Force valuable carbon baseline information and “what-if scenario” reductions options with their associated ROI. This is being done in a simple to use, web based application that uses calculations by The Climate Registry for the determination of a “Carbon Footprint.”
Food Marketing Institute (FMI) conducts programs in public affairs, food safety, research, education and industry relations on behalf of its 1,500 member companies — food retailers and wholesalers — in the United States and around the world. FMI’s U.S. members operate approximately 26,000 retail food stores and 14,000 pharmacies. Their combined annual sales volume of $680 billion represents three-quarters of all retail food store sales in the United States.
The FMI Carbon Calculator can be used to make basic calculations, such as converting raw data (refrigerant use, fossil fuel consumption and electricity use) into carbon emissions equivalents. FMI leveraged the carbon emissions knowledge and experience of Paul Hepperla of Verisae for the creation and use of the financial analysis data and calculator for the Toolkit.
Among the other information the members find extremely valuable are the “what-if scenario” reductions and their associated ROI. This is being done in a simple to use, web based application that uses calculations by The Climate Registry for the determination of a “Carbon Footprint.”
