ESS Named a 'Leader' in Enterprise Carbon Accounting
Groom Energy Solutions has named ESS, a provider of Environmental, Health and Safety software, an emerging leader among enterprise carbon accounting (ECA) system providers.
In a new report, "Enterprise Carbon Accounting: An Analysis of Organization-Level Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Reporting and a Review of Emerging GHG Software Products," the energy technology company identified ESS as a market leader based on strength of product/technology, number of customer deployments, financial strength, and corporate vision.
"We want to help CIOs, CFOs, directors of EH&S and sustainability, and consultants understand the drivers for GHG/carbon emissions tracking, calculation, and reporting and to identify software vendors who can help meet those challenges," said Paul Baier, vice president for Consulting at Groom Energy Solutions. "ESS is clearly a leader in the ECA space as well as the EH&S sustainability software market."
Groom Energy Solutions estimates that the number of organizations implementing ECA software solutions will quadruple by 2012. The report says, "As investors, customers, employees, communities, and governments insist on more accurate carbon emission data, organizations are beginning to track carbon emissions as rigorously as they track revenue and expenses. Just as organizations purchased financial accounting software to automate their process of financial data management, they will similarly invest in ECA software to automate the process of carbon data management."
"We've been at the forefront of air emissions and GHG/carbon data management," said Robert Johnson, president and chief executive officer of ESS. "Now the ECA market is heating up and a growing number of firms are selecting ESS solutions—including a Fortune 50 energy company and a major international power utility, just since the report was published."
