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 ClimateEarth.com have changed all of that.
Self-proclaimed experts in enterprise and supply chain carbon accounting, the
good people at ClimateEarth.com 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
ClimateEarth.com thus far and I am confident that they merely have begun.
The early successes of ClimateEarth.com 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.
