Gensuite, a software-as- a-service provider of cloud-based compliance and management applications, offers Energy and Sustainability Management as part of its application suite. The tools in Gensuite’s Sustainability and Energy Management help organizations determine their carbon footprint across sites, where the biggest savings opportunities are, what other sites are doing to reduce their CO2 footprint, and what ROI they have achieved.
The Sustainability and Energy Management suite of tools helps companies measure and track resource usage, costs and emissions, identify and quantify potential reduction opportunities, and share best practices of completed sustainability projects. Advanced data mining tracks and measures energy, waste, and water use with automatic carbon dioxide equivalent emissions calculations to establish a baseline. The Gensuite Eco Treasure Hunt tool in the suite can identify site-specific energy reduction opportunities, using online calculators to quantify prospects and create reports. Gensuite’s program efficiently quantifies site energy use and measures the quality of sustainability program operations, according to the company. In addition, the Geographic Mapper tool visualizes collected data for all business sites.
The Eco Treasure Hunt tool allows cross-functional teams to investigate resource use and consumption through an environmental impact discovery process. The process begins with teams performing site audits to identify potential cost saving opportunities. ETH then calculates and ranks the identified projects based on return on investment so users can determine which projects are most profitable, and which ones are most practical.
Currently Gensuite’s Sustainability and Energy Management program is deployed at more than 600 sites globally across 20-plus diverse companies, and reports over 200 parameters such as fuel usage, refrigerants, and units produced. The Sustainability and Energy Management applications allowed subscribing companies to identify over 3,500 reduction projects with cost savings totaling $75 million. When totaled between users, sites could reduce 350,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent use, the company says.
