A couple of products have been announced to help calculate carbon emissions:
- Xerox has announced the Sustainability Calculator, which helps assess the current usage of printers and copiers and provides customers with an initial measurement of their environmental footprint. It pinpoints where the environmental impact of the devices can be reduced and assesses what the benefits would be.
- Oxford's Environmental Change Institute (ECI) is pioneering an energy saving research project to make networked computers more energy-efficient. It is planned that the software will be easy to download and free of charge with a view to providing benefits for further and higher educational institutions across the UK.
