Microsoft Corp has adopted CarbonSystems’ Enterprise Sustainability Platform (ESP) cloud application as its new global standard for managing its energy, efficiency and environmental-performance reporting, underpinning its commitment to the environment and a sustainable low-carbon economy.

CarbonSystems, a global provider of environmental and energy management solutions, was selected based on its ability to use cloud computing to simplify and streamline Microsoft’s global greenhouse gas management and reporting to stakeholders.

CarbonSystems’ ESP will be implemented across Microsoft’s global operations, which comprise over 600 facilities across 110 countries.

Analyst firm Verdantix says Microsoft’s adoption of a single software platform to manage its sustainability performance underscores a global trend to standardize the capture and management of disparate nonfinancial data such as energy, emissions, and other environmental metrics.

ESP is a cloud-based data management engine that allows global electronic data interchange (EDI) with internal systems and third party suppliers. Its deployment will deliver important benefits to Microsoft, including:

- Automating energy and sustainability data collection to support CDP reporting
- Cutting the time and cost of managing corporate environmental information by automating the capture and tracking of energy, water and other environmental data from utilities and third party suppliers.
- Providing up to date, auditable business and compliance reports via dashboards summarizing energy, emissions and other environmental data.
- Informing efficiency and cost-saving decisions by providing a wide range of environmental performance analytics such as benchmarking, forecasting and marginal abatement cost analysis tools.
- Verifying the impacts, return on investment and payback from efficiency initiatives.

Adopting ESP complements Microsoft’s goal of leveraging technology to reduce its energy use, emissions, and waste by harnessing data to make more informed decisions about the company’s resource use.
