K3 AX is helping to promote a new application for Microsoft Dynamics AX customers which could help them reduce energy overheads and their carbon footprint.
The Environmental Sustainability Dashboard has been designed to help them collect and assess data about their energy use and carbon footprint.
Reports have suggested that emissions reduction is now the most important environmental goal for businesses as they will be taxed on it in the future.
The Environmental Sustainability Dashboard helps businesses automatically track and report on direct and indirect energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions from total energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions from transportation, commuting and business travel.
Information is stored in the Dynamics AX data base and can be shared throughout an organisation. The integration of ESD data with business data will enable companies to make decisions that consider their environmental impacts.
Companies using the ESD could also gain a competitive advantage by demonstrating beneficial effects of actions taken as a result of data collected, with business partners preferring relationships with environmentally conscious suppliers.
Paul Fryer, Sales Director for K3 AX, said: “The Environmental Sustainability Dashboard allows you to monitor the carbon footprint of your organisation. All the carbon power you use is collated by the system to produce charts and key performance indicators about how much energy you are using against your targets.
“It’s a smart tool and will become increasingly important as time goes on because carbon footprint will be a tax for the future. Whatever the size of the business and whatever its targets are, they will be taxed or get tax benefits against those targets. There are many firms thinking of implementing green policies that will be particularly interested in the Environmental Sustainability Dashboard.”
