Do you “model” your Greenhouse Gas emissions and know the impact on cost, profit and performance?

Do you “model” your Greenhouse Gas emissions and know the impact on cost, profit and performance?

If so, we would like to talk to you. We are looking to interview organizations who are currently modelling their carbon emissions from a Management Accounting perspective, rather than statutory reporting perspective. We are currently researching best/common practice at organizations globally.

CAM-I (Consortium of Advanced Management – International) is an international not-for-profit collaborative forum of thought leaders who develop practical and effective management tools, techniques and methods to advance the way organizations manage cost, processes and performance. CAM-I has managed over three decades of industry-led collaborative research with some notable members including Boeing, Rockwell Collins, Whirlpool and Navistar Truck Group just to name a few.

We have recently formed the Sustainability Interest Group with the objective of developing practical solutions for organizations to measure and manage sustainability impacts including the relationship between greenhouse gas emissions, cost, profitability and performance. We currently have representatives from the Certified Management Accountants of Canada, International Federation of Accountants, Grant Thornton and Pilbara Group on the team.

CAM-I meets quarterly and the next three meetings for 2010 are:

  • June 6-9 – Sheraton Fisherman’s Wharf, San Francisco, CA
  • September 12-15 – Snow King Resort, Jackson Hole, WY
  • December 5-8 – Royal Sonesta, New Orleans, LA

If you would like to attend one of these meetings please register at the CAM-I website under meetings and events, it’s free registration. Also please feel free to contribute any thoughts to this discussion thread.
