GE_01Easy-to-use tool for mapping and measuring companies’ CO2 impact
PROBLEM IN ONE SENTENCE:
We need an easy-to-use tool for mapping and measuring companies’ CO2 impact.
HOW BIG IS THE PROBLEM:
As environmental problems are on the rise, this problem is more apparent for companies in all sectors, including Elisa in telecom. It’s also regulated and demanded by the EU.
WHO’S PROBLEM IS IT:
All Elisa’s interest groups - clients, partners, suppliers, community - are somewhat affected by the problem but our main problem owner currently is the different companies in private sector.
We have manually mapped out our CO2 and environmental impact with interviews and data obtained from our financial department. It did work but was very time consuming and there can be a lot of human errors. Also, it needs to be done every year manually and you can’t get real time data.
CO2 footprint is affected by many different aspects which need different approach when it comes to tracking (you can track energy usage one way and paper usage the other way). So it’s complicated to create a holistic system for it (and one that is universally applicable to all sectors).
