Celebrating Earth Hour

Energent is excited to support the 2012 Earth Hour on March 31.  For one hour, between 8:30pm and 9:30pm, millions of Canadians will come together and turn off their lights.  We will be turning our lights off at the office and at home to support this important event, and encourage everyone to do the same.

We will be monitoring the collective effect of our client’s Earth Hour response.  We encourage you to check our website after Earth Hour to see the positive impact our clients have made.   Also, we want to know what your organizations or personal energy saving tips and tricks are.  Each one of our clients will receive a special report highlighting the success of their Earth Hour response.  This will give each of our clients an opportunity  to show their stakeholders the value of initiating Energy Conservation Measures (ECMs) that in many cases cost the organization no money.

We look forward to watching our clients make this significant contribution to Earth Hour, and sharing this response to the world.  Click on the link below to participate in our poll.

Why do Compaines care about their Carbon Footprint?

Energent has just released our newest module, EnergentGHG.  Using this product, companies are able to accurately, and in real-time, report all of thier scope 1 and scope 2 carbon and greenhouse gas emissions in a number of ways.  Companies can use tons of C02e (carbon equivalents), actual greenhouse gas emissions (CO2, N2O & CH4), or in energy equivalents which helps people relate consumption and emissions to every day activities.

But more importantly, why do companies care?  Energent is interested in finding out what the driver(s) are for monitoring their carbon footprint.  Is it financial?  Sustainability?  Both?  Neither?  We know there is more and more interest in carbon emissions and the impact they are having on the environment.  We  have also heard about the “triple bottom line” and how companies are thinking about corporate sustainability in the same way they think about profitability.  What about your company?

Fill out the poll attached to this blog post and let us know why your company cares about their carbon footprint.  We will talk about the results in a future post.
