The partnership across operations in Europe and the United States will provide clients with access to Greenstone’s carbon accounting software, Acco2unt, to measure, manage and report carbon emissions online.
As one of the first companies benefiting from the partnership, John Blain, CSR partner at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP commented, “The initial challenge for any organisation when establishing a comprehensive carbon management strategy is to accurately collate and measure its carbon footprint. Multi site organisations such as ours face numerous complexities, for example the development of a consistent methodology, metric versus imperial data, leased versus owned office space, and ensuring reports are all in the same format. The Acco2unt solution has enabled us to analyse our office footprint data against specified metrics so we can work with The CarbonNeutral Company to focus on reaching our carbon reduction targets.”
Neil Braun, Chief Executive Officer, The CarbonNeutral Company said, “Effective and accurate measurement of CO2 emissions is the first step for an organisation to establish a comprehensive carbon management strategy. We work with established independent third party advisors who provide accurate data and user friendly reporting tools. Using online reporting tools such as theGreenstone Acco2unt solution will help companies focus on implementing their offset-inclusive carbon reduction programmes that will reduce costs, build a strong environmental position and prepare them for future regulation.”
Matthew de Villiers, Chief Executive Officer at Greenstone Carbon Management comments, “This partnership provides The CarbonNeutral Company with the use of a best of class measurement, monitoring and reporting system which will ensure the integrity and objectivity of their assessments so that clients can concentrate on setting and reaching reduction targets year on year.”
The CarbonNeutral Company will offer its clients the opportunity to undertake their carbon emissions assessment through Greenstone’s Acco2unt solution. Greenstone’s Carbon Consultants will provide all system configuration and training required to ensure The CarbonNeutral Company’s clients are able to upload their data and monitor performance on an ongoing basis.
