Curious about Environmental Insights?

We created this Carbon Accounting solution around ten years ago with the International Federation of Accountants, CMA Canada (Now CPA Canada), CAM-I, Grant Thornton, Boeing, Weber State University, SAS, Dresser-Rand (Now Siemens Energy).

You can read about the solution in this whitepaper.

We also undertook a proof of concept model with Weber State University.

By combining both FINANCIAL cost and ENVIRONMENTAL cost in the one Carbon Accounting model, this allows you to both MEASURE and MANAGE your environmental impact and forecasted environmental and financial impacts.
