Government Initiatives to Boost Carbon and Energy Software Market
- China, the U.S., and the European Union are among the top greenhouse gas emitters across the globe. Initiatives taken by the governments in these regions have made the industrial sectors keep a tab on their carbon footprint.
- At the Paris Climate Summit in June 2015, China, the top emitter of greenhouse gases, finally announced to reduce its emissions per unit of gross domestic product by 60-65% by 2030 from 2005 levels. This marks China’s contribution to a global climate pact. The country had so far been in denial regarding the greenhouse gas emissions.
- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency issued a proposal in June 2014 to reduce carbon pollution from existing power plants that are the biggest source of greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S. The Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program compiles greenhouse gas data from large emission sources across a range of industry sectors such as oil and gas, IT and telecommunication, retail, manufacturing, automobiles, energy and utilities, medical, construction, and others. The program also gathers data from suppliers of products that release greenhouse gases.
- The European Union announced plans in July 2015 to remodel its weakened carbon-trading program in an effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The program is the world’s first and largest carbon-trading mechanism, and covers around 11,000 power stations, industrial plants, and airlines in 31 countries.
All these initiatives have led various enterprises to adopt carbon and energy software to monitor and assess the total energy consumed throughout the supply chain and map the associated carbon emissions.
