CarbonSystems has been recognised as a leading provider of carbon, energy and environmental management software by Verdantix, an independent analyst research firm focused on sustainable business strategies and marketing opportunities.
CarbonSystems’ Green Quadrant leader position is based upon an independent, fact-based comparative analysis of the world’s leading companies offering carbon and energy software applications using a 99 weighted-criteria model.
“As the market for carbon and energy management software grows buyers find it difficult to generate a shortlist from over 100 that exist in the market today,” said David Metcalfe, Director of Verdantix. “Buyers look for proof of value from previous deployments but with the infancy of the market this can often be difficult.
“CarbonSystems' position in the leaders' quadrant was underpinned by the breadth and depth of their client base which ranges from large multi billion dollar organisations to smaller, emerging clients. The company has successfully transitioned from its Australian heartland, securing customers in Europe and the United States," said Metcalfe.
Verdantix concluded that the ten leading companies were differentiated from their peers by having more advanced carbon management and energy saving tools, a more compelling customer base, fully featured solutions, best-in-class functionality, greater organisational and financial resources, and stronger strategic partnerships. CarbonSystems was also recognised among 'best in class’ vendors for data and audit security, and customer momentum.
Commenting on CarbonSystems' leader designation, David Solsky, chief executive of CarbonSystems said: "This new report reinforces the benefits that our technology is delivering to over 100 customers. Our innovative, automated data capture tools, combined with a best in class security and assurance model, ensure customers can reduce the time and cost of managing environmental data, and deliver financial grade compliance and business reports on demand.”
For example, Metcash Trading, a leading global distributor of food, liquor, hardware and fast moving consumer goods is using the CarbonSystems platform to target and assess a suite of sustainability programs addressing its customers, suppliers, products and business processes. In the past 12 months Metcash has seen its environmental KPIs move in a positive direction, with declines in its carbon emissions, waste to landfill and water use.
“Clients like Metcash are using our technology to explore all aspects of their business operations, revealing where targeted environmental efficiency programs will provide the biggest impacts and cost savings,” said Solsky. “Further, the CarbonSystems platform brings accountability to environmental initiatives by tracking cost savings and return on investment (ROI).”
“For firms that currently consume significant amounts of energy the risks of price volatility can have a material financial impact,” said David Metcalfe. “For firms with an energy management focus Verdantix recommends turning to the software suppliers such as CarbonSystems that have strong energy management and meter integration functionality.”
CarbonSystems helps organisations to collect, manage and interpret their sustainability data, enabling them to positively impact their operations, their financial performance and the planet. Our solutions are helping companies to drive better sustainability outcomes in more than 50,000 locations around the world. Our cloud-based software is a comprehensive solution for sustainability resource management. It enables reporting and management of energy, carbon, environment, supply chain and corporate responsibility indicators.
The company has clients in diverse sectors, including corporate property management, education, electricity and gas, government, food services, fast moving goods distribution, information technology, managed services, mining, logistics, and professional services.
This Green Quadrant report provides individuals responsible for energy, carbon and greenhouse gas (GHG) data collection, planning, budgeting, forecasting, reporting and reduction projects with an in-depth, fact-based analysis of the top 28 carbon management software solutions. Energy Managers, CSR Directors, Chief Sustainability Officers and Facilities Directors need to switch from utility bills and Microsoft Excel to a more robust, flexible and auditable software-based energy and carbon management process.

Working in collaboration with CarbonSystems, we were able to develop an overarching data entry sheet specifically for online-NGERS reporting. This in turn took any confusion out of the data entry at the front end I believe we can even further streamline the process for the next reporting period.
