Best Foot Forward Helps AMEC Cut its Carbon Footprint
June 30, 2009, Press Dispensary. Best Foot Forward (BFF), one of Europe's leading sustainability consultancies, is implementing its Footprinter™ carbon management software for AMEC, a FTSE100 company providing services to the world’s energy, power and process industries.
Footprinter™ helps organisations measure, monitor, reduce and communicate their exposure to carbon risk. This is a fast-growing market as risks and legislation in this area increase.
AMEC has developed a carbon management programme designed to reduce the carbon intensity of its global operations and wanted a carbon management tool that could be accessed online from all its business units worldwide, and would encourage responsibility for carbon at unit level. BFF was commissioned to provide such a tool to capture, target, manage and report greenhouse gas information from AMEC's many units. BFF delivered AMEC’s requirements using a tailored version of its existing Footprinter™ web-based carbon management software.
In line with the brief, the Footprinter™ software for AMEC aggregates the footprint to any chosen level within the organisation and supports online analysis and benchmarking of the carbon footprints of different units.
Linzie Forrester, AMEC sustainability programme manager, said: "AMEC Footprinter™ will be integral in reducing our carbon footprint. It is already giving insight into where our biggest issues lie and helping us focus on priorities."
Paul Cooper, managing director, Best Foot Forward, comments: "We are supporting AMEC’s carbon management programme effectively with our online Footprinter™ carbon management tool. It significantly enhances AMEC’s capability to measure, monitor and manage the carbon footprint of its operations worldwide."
