This executive guide to energy, carbon and sustainability software presents the main drivers for companies to invest in sustainability software. The guide describes the biggest challenges, identifies key software features to look for and offers recommendations for selecting sustainability software.
The findings are based on Groom Energy’s recently published 2013 Enterprise Carbon Accounting (ECA) and Sustainability Software report. The ECA report is based on an analysis of 75 vendors, 30 vendor briefings and demos, and interviews with 26 companies that recently purchased software. Currently in its fifth version, the ECA report names each year the Market Leaders in ECA and Sustainability Software.
In 2012, PE INTERNATIONAL was ranked by Groom Energy as one of the five Market Leaders for the fifth consecutive year. Exclusively in this executive guide readers will find a detailed profile and scoring of PE INTERNATIONAL along the five criteria used for the 2012 vendor evaluation by Groom Energy. PE’s scoring was based on discussions and demos with all vendors and discussions with customers using different solutions. The number of new customers in 2011-12 verified through press releases, reference calls and case studies carried considerable weight.
