FastCompany blog claims that successful carbon management requires creating a Chief Sustainability Officer, rather than relying on a CSR Director (what’s the difference?). Other directives include carbon management software complemented by cross-functional process change:
Implement integrated carbon management systems technology. To reduce carbon emissions firms need accurate, timely and complete data on energy and fuel consumption.

Design cross-functional process changes across energy, operations and finance.

To succeed with multiple, simultaneous changes firms need a program based on granular energy and fuel data, financial analysis of projects and assessment of unintended consequences. [more]
