Carbonetworks, a worldwide leader in corporate carbon management, and AMEE, the world’s energy meter, announced a pioneering agreement today. Through this agreement, AMEE will provide a carbon engine for the Carbonetworks management solution, designed to help organizations develop strategies to ultimately reduce carbon.
The Carbonetworks solution evaluates corporate carbon emissions, pinpoints carbon reduction opportunities internally and links clients to the largest network of verified reductions, providing a comprehensive carbon management strategy for business of all sizes. AMEE’s engine, which tracks and measures energy converted into CO2 emissions, will enhance Carbonetworks’ ability to offer more detailed emissions measurement by providing the robust standardized data used in calculations.
“Standardized emissions data is critical to develop meaningful carbon emissions strategies for our clients,” said Michael Meehan, president & CEO of Carbonetworks. “Using trusted carbon calculations and data from innovative vendors such as AMEE enables us to provide carbon management solutions to a wide range of businesses through our platform. For the first time, companies don’t need expensive compliance software to be able to manage their carbon effectively – they can get up and running in minutes.”
As a neutral, independent aggregation platform, AMEE’s vision is to calculate and track the carbon footprint of everything on Earth. Its web-based platform includes carbon measurement, tracking, calculation, profiling and transactional systems, representing data from 150 countries and regions.
“This agreement paves the way to a truly interoperable, authoritative ecosystem for carbon management. AMEE drives change by increasing the accuracy and transparency of emissions data,” said Gavin Starks, founder and CEO of AMEE. “Both AMEE and Carbonetworks have clear network strategies, which will help to create and grow market-wide opportunities.”
Carbonetworks’ software and services help companies create emission strategies that capitalize on emerging global markets. Carbonetworks and AMEE will offer clients the most comprehensive carbon management solution, while accelerating their shared vision.
