Constellation Energy Announces New Carbon Footprint Solution for Businesses

Constellation Energy today announced that its subsidiary, Constellation NewEnergy, will offer a Carbon Footprint Solution to help commercial, industrial and institutional customers throughout North America manage their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. This new service is offered as part of the company's suite of sustainable solutions, which includes Renewable Energy Certificate (REC) products that may help customers offset carbon emissions associated with their electricity usage.

"Through this new service, we are offering our customers a solution that helps build a solid foundation for their comprehensive sustainability and environmental strategies," said Bruce McLeish, senior vice president of products and pricing for Constellation NewEnergy. "By offering both RECs and GHG tracking services, we can help organizations evaluate their impact on the environment, and then take action to mitigate that impact by purchasing RECs."

Constellation NewEnergy will leverage ecolink, an innovative carbon management platform developed by Pace Global Energy Services LLC, to help businesses quantify, report and manage their GHG emissions. The new Carbon Footprint Solution has two deployment options for varied budgets: ecolink Standard edition, an annual assessment of a company's GHG emissions profile; and ecolink Manager edition, a comprehensive, dynamic carbon and environmental sustainability management platform.

"The pressure placed on companies by customers, regulators and shareholders to manage, report and improve GHG emissions performance are among the newest and most significant challenges for business leaders in the 21st century. Those who fail to address these new challenges with innovative applied solutions stand to lose their competitive position," said Tim Sutherland, chief executive officer of Pace. "We look forward to working with Constellation NewEnergy and its tremendous customer network to extend their already innovative suite of products and services."

The Carbon Footprint Solution also enables businesses to increase the transparency of their sustainability practices, and more effectively communicate those practices to their customers, employees and regulators. In addition, this service provides a structured platform that can help prepare customers for participation in GHG emissions reporting programs, including the U.S. EPA Climate Leaders program, the Carbon Disclosure Project and other emerging regulatory initiatives. Both scalable and flexible, the offering is easily customized for specific reporting needs and provides customers with a Web-based, enterprise-level system to manage their GHG emissions.
