The Climate Registry Upgrading Emissions Reporting in 2010
The Climate Registry, a standards-setting organization for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reporting in North America, announced the next generation of its online emissions reporting system, supporting both voluntary and mandatory reporting, will be developed through a new technical partnership with Misys Open Source Solutions, a division of Misys plc, an IT solution and services company.
The new version of system is due for release in early 2010. It will feature robust and flexible technology capable of introducing a new level of efficiency.
The Climate Registry currently supports voluntary emissions reporting for over 340 businesses, organizations, academic institutions, local governments and government agencies and also supports mandatory emissions reporting programs. It developed a data collection application for the state of Nevada, and in June, The Climate Registry was awarded a contract to develop the GHG data collection system for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The Climate Registry and Misys will work together to design and build the Commonwealth of Massachusetts mandatory emissions reporting program.
By working jointly, The Climate Registry and Misys plan to debut an enhanced online emissions reporting system that will feature the ability to generate more comprehensive reports, a more robust verification module, the support of both mandatory and emissions reporting and higher levels of flexibility, navigation and ease-of-use.
