In a press release today SAP says it’s working with Microsoft and Accenture to develop a global carbon reporting, benchmarking and analytics system for the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP). Beginning in 2010, corporations will report to CDP through the new data system.
The solution will be based on SAP’s BusinessObjects Business Intelligence software. According to the company the technology will provide a dashboard to allow users to clearly view the carbon footprint of companies that have responded to the CDP surveys, analyse the data, benchmark responses and track progress against reduction targets.
By the way, on Monday of this week the CDP launched its Global 500 and S&P 500 reports as well as making the CDP 2009 company responses available on its new web site. If you want to know about a companies emissions, reduction targets, risks from climate change, etc. then its worth taking a look. There are now 2,000 companies from 66 countries on the database.
