IBM Releases Slew Of Efficiency, Carbon Management Tools

IBM has launched the Carbon Tradeoff Modeler, a tool that that the company says analyzes and manages the climate impact of supply chains.

IBM’s carbon management analysis tool models the cost and carbon impact of several key levers and provides insights for balancing cost and carbon management objectives. Key factors the tool captures include: packaging options, alternative operational processes, alternative transportation modes and energy sources, inventory policies, and sourcing policies. The Carbon Management Analysis Tool can identify and recommend the most desirable actions to take among the many that can be used to achieve carbon dioxide emissions reduction.

The paper emphasizes how carbon management, energy consumption and other environmental issues should be analysed and approached in an integrated manner — evaluating overall performance goals (cost, service, quality and carbon dioxide emissions) in terms of their relationship to one another.

In other news, IBM has introduced “Software for a Greener World,” an expansion of Project Big Green, which the company launched last year with a commitment of $1 billion per year.

The software includes new and existing offerings including: Tivoli software products; WebSphere Virtual Enterprise; Lotus Technologies; WebSphere Portal 6.1; Lotus ActiveInsight 6.1; and Rational Team Concert.

Earlier this month, IBM announced new energy-management software and an energy benchmark.
