With energy prices on the rise and a unit cost for carbon being debated, saving power is on everyone's mind (or should be!). Sustainability Measures is a consulting firm that offers UK product ecoDriver, an application that provides real-time information on energy, water and gas use. The application is able to capture information from different sources such as gas and energy meters and has multi-country capability.
As ever, the more data a company has, the better informed it is to act. The tool could help Australian businesses reduce their carbon footprints.
In his pitch, Sustainability Measures owner Bas Breure tells ZDNet Australia about ecoDriver.
