Decarbonization Without Spreadsheets: Managing Carbon Data at Scale

Resource Summary

Organizations still using spreadsheets to aggregate, track, and report carbon data are wasting time and money. Converting building resource use and operations data into emissions data using spreadsheets requires constant re-education of the latest standards and protocols, is highly susceptible to human error, and leaves less time for strategy and action.

This presentation will discuss processes, tools, and technology that forward-thinking organizations can use to transition from spreadsheets into more productive and efficient methods of managing carbon data.

As customers, employees, shareholders, and financial institutions continue to push for more transparent reporting around corporate sustainability initiatives, organizations face mounting pressure to ensure their data is accurate and accessible. Despite this fact, recent research from Ernst and Young shows more than 72% of S&P 500 companies and 87% of all public companies still use spreadsheets for carbon accounting.
