SILVER SPRING, Md., Sept. 15 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Carbonfund.org, the leading nonprofit climate change solutions organization, today launched what it calls "an affordable and accessible solution to carbon accounting and management," Carbon ExpressTrack™. The web-based 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.
Carbon accounting has historically required deep pockets or cobbling together spreadsheets. Consultants often charge many thousands of dollars to develop a tailored solution. Traditional spreadsheets can get complex and time consuming, while not having built-in features for fast monitoring and reporting of emissions. In fact, the carbon management industry is expected to grow from $120 million a year to $250 million in 2012 as businesses opt for alternatives.
Carbon ExpressTrack is a unique solution that allows users to easily enter or upload utility usage, 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.
Also, Carbon ExpressTrack is designed to be user-friendly, with an easy, immediate setup. Carbonfund.org also assists in quality assurance checks and provides expert support. As a nonprofit organization, Carbonfund.org is able to offer low pricing without sacrificing features for effective carbon accounting and management or scalability as a business grows.
Carbonfund.org President Eric Carlson said, "Carbon ExpressTrack advances our mission to fight global warming by empowering businesses to track and ultimately reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. Carbon ExpressTrack makes carbon accounting and management accessible for any company, in any industry, and is an important tool in achieving business sustainability goals."
As an incentive for companies to track and manage their emissions, Carbonfund.org is offering special pricing for Carbon ExpressTrack. Businesses can sign up for as low as $59.99 a month by emailing [email protected] or calling (240) 247-0630.
