A new toolset for Microsoft's Dynamics AX software lets businesses calculate their carbon footprint.
The Environmental Sustainability Dashboard is aimed at letting small to medium-sized businesses estimate their environmental impact without having to pay for outside consultants, according to Microsoft.
It covers four metrics: direct energy consumption; indirect energy consumption; greenhouse gas emissions from an organisation's total energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions from commuting and business travel.
The dashboard has been designed to work with SharePoint. Its components also integrate into "role centres" in Dynamics, customised views used to manage different kinds of information for different jobs.
