Carbonfund.org has launched a low-cost, Web-based tool designed to help organizations simplify carbon accounting and management. The Carbon ExpressTrack software program will provide the insight businesses need to manage and reduce their climate impact, while saving time and money in tracking greenhouse gas emissions (GHG), says the nonprofit carbon reduction and climate solutions organization.
Carbonfund.org says that typical carbon accounting solutions can run into thousands of dollars to develop a tailored solution, and traditional spreadsheet programs can be time consuming.
In comparison, the Carbon ExpressTrack is designed to be user-friendly with an easy setup. The organization will also help users with quality assurance checks and provide support. In addition, as a nonprofit organization, Carbonfund.org says it is able to offer low pricing without sacrificing features for effective carbon accounting and management or scalability as a business grows.
Carbon ExpressTrack will allow users to enter or upload utility use, as well as vehicle, travel, event and other energy use. The software lets business managers monitor and report on emissions using widely accepted protocols like the WRI/WBCSD Greenhouse Gas Protocol and EPA Climate Leaders Greenhouse Gas Inventory.
As an incentive for companies to track and manage their emissions, Carbonfund.org is offering special pricing for the carbon accounting solution. Businesses can sign up for as low as $59.99 a month.
Here’s a video demo of the Carbon ExpressTrack.
Carbonfund.org launched the first carbon neutral product label in the U.S. and believes that going carbon neutral is feasible for those who have already completed a product life-cycle assessment (LCA).
