New carbon emissions tracker is focused on professional services organizations

Feeling neglected because many carbon emissions analysis "tools" typically are focused on companies that create hard goods and that have facilities and manufacturing lines to manage and products to deliver rather than those of the intellectual sort?Non-profit organization Noblis is launching a service to help address this gap AND to help create documentation that could be valuable for recording information related to federal regulations (and other mandates related to carbon emissions).

Feeling neglected because many carbon emissions analysis "tools" typically are focused on companies that create hard goods and that have facilities and manufacturing lines to manage and products to deliver rather than those of the intellectual sort?

Non-profit organization Noblis is launching a service to help address this gap AND to help create documentation that could be valuable for recording information related to federal regulations (and other mandates related to carbon emissions).

The application, which is available as a hosted service, is called TEAL, or Total Emissions AnaLytics. Aside from being focused on professional services firms, it is also listed with the U.S. General Services Administration. TEAL tracks carbon footprint information related to electricity usage of both facilities and IT infrastructure, business travel, employee commuting and so forth.

I'm actually writing this before the full details have been disclosed, so you'll need to check out the main Noblis site for more information after May 11. You can also read more about how the GSA has been testing the application in this news article.
