Posted Feb 03 2010 7:00am

If you’ve read my blog for any amount of time, you know that I advocate low-carbon living as a key solution to the climate crisis. My position is more relevant than it was when I launched my blog in June of 2007. However, even as political leaders on several continents struggle with achieving low-carbon initiatives through legislation and treaty, humanity's abuse of fossil fuels and other environmental tragedies only worsen.

A key component in solving the larger problem, then, of reversing the trend toward lowered generation of carbon emissions to eventual carbon neutrality for everyone, is for businesses large and small to do their part. After all, it is commercial enterprises which drive much of our culture, both in the West and, increasingly, the East. However, it is a common failing among business owners and leaders to resist change if there is the slightest perceived risk of a loss of profit or an increase in expenses.

Until now, it has been difficult to argue with proprietors and boards of directors about the need to lower their carbon footprint because environmental advocates have lacked compelling data with which to make a cogent argument. The innovators at have changed all of that.

Self-proclaimed experts in enterprise and supply chain carbon accounting, the good people at have created tools which have solved a very large problem for the environmental community. Through these tools, we quite literally can account for the role of carbon in every aspect of an enterprise. I was overjoyed when I learned about the impressive accomplishments of thus far and I am confident that they merely have begun.

The early successes of in accounting for carbon in enterprise and supply chain activities have received many well deserved accolades and coverage by business news media. You can review an ample supply of relevant material on the company website. I exhort you to do so immediately.
