In July 2015 G7 leaders agreed to back the recommendations of the IPCC, the United Nations’ climate change panel, to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions up to 70% by 2050. In August President Obama put forward his Clean Power Plan which was widely supported by corporate leaders. To meet commitments will require each emitting entity to have in place a method to document baseline emissions, set targets, monitor and report outcomes. Using GHG Protocol accounting methods, we have developed tools to assist organizations in planning and monitoring GHG emissions reductions. These tools can be used in building consensus internally and sharing commitments externally. They can help in supply chain and compliance negotiations and in reporting to shareholders, stakeholders and regulators.
This video from World Research Institute (WRI) illustrates how GHG Protocol can reduce disruption by providing guidance in setting and meeting complinance objectives. We built our Analytica GHG Protocol toolkit around GHG Protocol Mitigation Standards to help organizations engage internal consensus using influence diagrams and other data modeling tools. This also helps the development of materials to communicate externally throughout the supply chain, with customers, media and compliance communities.
We have attempted to review and document the large library of available GHG Protocol online resources in order to avoid reinventing existing wheels. Within the Analytica iOffice we have created Virtual Workroom libraries that are automatically updated as new materials become available from reliable sources like WRI, EPA Center for Corporate Climate Leadership, CDP, WBDSC and the many other organizations dedicated to developing realistic business solutions that address the challenges of climate change.
Economist Intelligence Unit now measures climate change in terms of cold, hard cash: It estimates that investors will lose $4.2 trillion between now and 2100 as a result of the changing climate, an amount about equal to the G.D.P. of Japan. If climate change is worse than expected, the loss could be as much as $13.8 trillion. The report notes that investors may not be able to avoid losses simply by altering their investments, because entire economies may be affected. And the time to act is now: “If investors wait until these risks actually manifest themselves, then the options they will have to deal with them will be significantly reduced,” the report cautions.
The United Nations Climate Change Conference, COP21 or CMP11 will be held in Paris, France in November/December 2015. According to the organizing committee, the objective of the 2015 conference is to achieve, for the first time in over 20 years of UN negotiations, a binding and universal agreement on climate, from all the nations of the world. Pope Francis published an encyclical called Laudato si' intended, in part, to influence the conference. The encyclical calls for action against human-caused climate change. The United States has announced its commitment to The Clean Power Plan that sets achievable standards to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 32 percent from 2005 levels by 2030.
Web Portal Tools to engage stakeholders, build consensus, and help in negotiations with supply chain vendors and compliance regulators are essential. Analytica GHG Protocol toolkit has a graphical user interface to increase global users engagement. It's optimized for seamless integration with the full suite of Microsoft Office 365 API. Data tables can be copied and pasted from Excel into Analytica Models. Output data from models can be copied to Word templates.
Data modeling using scenarios for hands-on interaction is the fastest way to engage users and build consensus. The people you need to convince respond best to non-emotional tools that accomodate complexity. Spreadsheets were a brilliant innovation but are poorly suited for serious quantitative modeling - for business models, scenario modeling, decision support and policy analysis. For that you need Analytica GHG Protocol toolkit.
Analytica GHG Protocol toolkit provides a modeling environment that empowers collaborative multi-dimensional planning. It is a unique graphical solution with multiple methods for visualizing data output from Analytica models. It's intutive browser desktop is easier for global team engagement in understanding variable influences, exploring results, and conducting “What if” analysis.Analytica is uniquely optimized for Microsoft Office 365 API integration which extends familiar colloboration tools and methods.
Analytica GHG Protocol toolkit includes reporting templates that meet GHG Protocol guidlines. Because they are integrated through Microsoft Office 365 API - data output from Analytica models can be automatically placed in appropriate sections which speeds reporting efficiency and accuracy.
You can add new templates and customization features to Word, Excel, Power Point, One Note and other Office 365 applications as required working with the Office 365 API. To see a live demo Contact Us.
EPA CORPORATE CLIMATE LEADERSprocess model provides a solid foundation for the Analytica GHG Protocol Emissions reduction toolkit. In addition, we have used GHG Gold Standard Mitigation guidence from the World Resource Institute (WRI). These and other resources have provided the framework. The resultant GHG Protocol toolkit benefits from Analytica's credibility and experience working with NGO's, government, academia, and corporate leaders. The Analytica GHG Protocol toolkit reduces complexity and cost to meet both current and anticipated regulatory compliance.
Obviously you need good tools now to begin the transformation to zero carbon emissions. Analytica has over two decades experience developing and deplopying tools for scientific, educational and business customers. Analytica software products are seamlessly integrated into the Analytica iOffice® and automatically integrated with Microsoft Office 365 and other browser desktop applications. This significantly extends Analytica and opens opportunities for even greater extensiblity using iOffice® integrated API's.
