, the award winning sustainability software provider, has joined the ENERGY STAR partnership program. Over 100 organizations including McDonald's, Mattel, PG&E and ProLogis use cr
solutions to collect, analyze and communicate sustainability data. A key aspect of this is the collection of energy data from commercial properties - essential for evaluating and improving building efficiency as well as contributing to enterprise level energy and carbon reporting.
Collecting energy data can be a complex and time consuming process involving multiple energy providers, utility companies, and bills. Automated data collection systems help organizations streamline the traditionally complex processes. The ENERGY STAR partnership ensures cr
clients can further automate the collection of facility energy consumption data by integrating directly with the ENERGY STAR Automated Benchmarking System (ABS).
Data is stored securely in the web-based cr
system where it is combined with a broad range of ESG performance metrics. This integrated approach extends energy management to provide a 360-degree view of sustainability performance.
In partnership with ENERGY STAR, cr
can help organizations to:
- Automatically obtain energy data from hundreds of facilities
- Automatically calculate emissions using libraries of GHG factors (including EPA eGRID) from a trusted and accredited Gold level Carbon Disclosure Project Partner.
- Assess and visualize performance on dashboards, scorecards, and interactive maps
- Use actual consumption data to run scenarios to predict future performance and create action plans
- Plan, manage, and report on energy reduction initiatives
- Set energy use targets and track performance down to the site or meter level
