Microsoft Corp. has launched the Environmental Sustainability Dashboard for Microsoft Dynamics AX. The new toolset will enable midsize businesses to capture data needed to measure key indicators related to energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions as part of everyday business processes from within their enterprise resource planning solution.
With the new solution, companies can collect auditable data on four of the core environmental performance indicators identified by the Global Reporting Initiative for energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, including direct on-premise fuel consumption and the carbon footprint of their power usage with utilities and other vendors.
Based on this information, organizations can monitor their carbon footprint and institute business practices that are both environmentally and economically sustainable, minimizing their exposure to fluctuating energy costs, for example.
In related news, Sole Technology, provider of authentic action sports footwear and apparel with revenues of almost $200 million, has announced that it is planning to implement Microsoft's new Dashboard.
