Keep Track of Energy
If your company doesn’t already keep track of energy consumption (heating, electricity, water, and landfill waste), then participating in the Cap and Trade (C&T) program is a good place to start as it requires mandatory reporting of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. C&T programs in California, Quebec, and Ontario, became linked internationally in the Western Climate Initiative on January 1, 2018 to form the second largest low-carbon economy in the world.
Participants in the Ontario C&T program are required to report their GHG emissions in an Excel spreadsheet that is submitted 6 months after the end of the calendar year. Often the report is compiled by a summer student.
If you want more than an Excel spreadsheet, then a cloud-based solution is available that offers a more dynamic, interactive, and real-time reporting on energy consumption, conservation, as well as greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. SMV Energy Solutions offers cloud-based solutions that easily calculate GHG emissions, energy consumption (electricity, heat, water, and landfill waste) by time, facilities, or other parameters as needed in real-time.
Shareholders are looking for GHG reporting to determine whether your company has an asset or an unfunded liability, and having this information available at your fingertips provides what you need when you need it.
