CA ecoSoftware Helps Leading Construction and Property Company to Reduce Carbon Emissions, Cut Energy Costs and Manage Sustainability
ISLANDIA, N.Y. and STOCKHOLM, Jan. 25, 2012 /PR Newswire/ --

 CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) today announced that NCC Group has chosen its energy and sustainability management solution CA ecoSoftware to help manage the company's sustainability program and better meet its climate change strategy by automating carbon reporting, cutting carbon emissions and improving NCC Group's environmental profile.

NCC Group, a leading construction and property development company in the Nordic region, is implementing the powerful and scalable CA ecoSoftware solution throughout its European operations to measure and report the company's greenhouse gas emissions, and water use—both internally, within the organisation's own facilities, and externally across its property construction portfolio.

'CA Technologies will support our drive to be one of Europe's most innovative and sustainable construction and property organisations,' said Christina Lindback, vice president of Environmental Affairs, NCC Group. 'The company has a strong track record on environmental affairs, and the use of CA ecoSoftware will take this success to the next level. This implementation will enable us to better manage our energy consumption and simultaneously develop and build more energy-efficient properties to ultimately become more efficient in our use of power and natural resources.'

Until recently, NCC Group relied on a manual, spreadsheet-based approach to measure energy efficiency and sustainability, which differed from department to department. This made it difficult for the company to quickly and effectively measure and report on energy, water, waste, and carbon output across the business. The enterprise-class CA ecoSoftware solution will introduce a systematic and governed approach towards NCC Group's energy, carbon, and environmental activities by more accurately accounting and reporting on its energy and carbon emissions, and by communicating sustainability milestones and performance in a more efficient and timely manner.

'Managers and executives can more quickly deliver reports and analysis from CA ecoSoftware by systematically pulling together energy, carbon and sustainability data from thousands of disparate sources across the enterprise.  It is a giant leap forward from the spreadsheets that some organizations are still using to manually calculate emissions and impacts,' said Sonny Masero, vice president, Sustainability EMEA, CA Technologies. 'We are very pleased that NCC Group has selected CA ecoSoftware and is implementing it to advance their program to become a more innovative and sustainable construction company.'

With CA ecoSoftware, NCC Group will have the flexibility to report on a multitude of environmental practises including the measurement of consumption and spend associated with energy and natural resources used in the building construction phase, understanding patterns of energy consumption and power use both within the organisation and across the company's dispersed construction projects, and helping to optimise the manufacturing of the company's environmentally friendly products, such as aggregate and asphalt. CA ecoSoftware will also help NCC Group to more effectively report on their environmental activities to third-party organisations such as the Global Reporting Initiative and the Carbon Disclosure Project.
