Emission Management Service Suite for India

by CXOtoday Staff    Jun 03, 2009


EDS, an HP company, has launched a suite of services to help Indian organizations cut down on carbon emissions.

The service will help government organizations and enterprises accurately calculate energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions emanating from IT assets.

 "Whether to reduce cost and improve energy efficiency, or to help corporate social responsibility activities, managing and reducing greenhouse gas emissions is the primary task for enterprises all around the world," said Sundeep Khisty, green practice leader for EDS APAC.

EDS carbon emission management service (CEMS) is a suite of services developed in Australia to help organizations drive IT asset efficiency, and create greener technology environments.  The suite will help enterprises and governments deliver savings on energy costs, and manage their IT infrastructure in line with local and international environmental regulatory frameworks.

The CEMS framework was designed based on international greenhouse gas calculation rules and methodologies to enable organizations to capture real-time carbon emissions arising from each service unit, IT application and infrastructure. At its core is C-Counter, an EDS-developed application, which measures, monitors, stores and reports the carbon emission information of institutional IT assets.
