OpenEco.org is a new global on-line community from Sun Microsystems that provides free, easy-to-use tools to help participants assess, track, and compare energy performance, share proven best practices to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and encourage sustainable innovation.
According to their website, “GHG analysis is done primarily using proprietary tools and often requires significant investments in consulting services. Not only does this discourage many organizations from assessing their GHG impacts, but it also means that analysis results are rarely shared outside an individual organization. Sun believes that working together in communities and sharing tools and information between organizations can maximize our chances of success in facing our environmental challenges.”
It will be interesting to see how much it is used, if your company is using it, please share your experiences with us.
