How can organizations reduce carbon emissions? 1) Develop a strategy with specific reduction targets; 2) Capture carbon/energy data, analyze, and report internally/externally using carbon management software; 3) Engage employees in activities and campaigns using social media to develop and implement emission reduction strategies. CloudApps combines the latter two:

CloudApps Carbon’s Summer ’10 edition builds on its energy reduction functionality by introducing integrated Social Media support that helps companies engage their workforce in their carbon reduction efforts. It also includes state-of-the-art employee engagement features, including employee suggestions on energy reduction ideas allowing companies to drive down energy costs across the business.
