ILOG Adds Carbon Counting Capabilities

Nasdaq-listed software company ILOG has announced a carbon footprint extension to its suite of supply chain applications. ILOG says that the new extension helps companies evaluate the impact of various supply chain network configurations and transportation strategies on their carbon footprint, allowing them to quickly implement green supply chain initiatives.

These are the sorts of products that will increasingly appear over the next few years. The cost of carbon will become a factor in many business decisions so will need to be included in various internal systems that cost and manage business processes. Products will appear and IT services companies will be consulted about strategy, choice and implementation.
