Supplier: Professional Advantage
21 September, 2009

Environmental sustainability reveals opportunities to run your business more efficiently.

Microsoft Dynamics AX is designed to help your company look at your business from a new perspective, identify opportunities for increased efficiency that can deliver bottom-line cost savings, and track progress against initiatives to decrease your impact on the environment.

The Environmental Sustainability Dashboard for Microsoft Dynamics AX is here!

This cost-effective solution is designed to help Microsoft Dynamics AX customers track their energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, also known as their carbon footprint, over time allowing them to be more proactive in their approach to environmental issues.

The dashboard represents Microsoft's commitment to developing technology that supports environmentally sustainable business practices.

Streamline data collection

To facilitate collection of energy consumption data, business processes such as accounts payable and inventory management have been extended, thus simplifying a previously painful and time-consuming process.

Measure energy use and emissions

A study of 150 companies in March 2007 by AMR Research showed that businesses consider their most important environmental goals to be energy and emissions reduction. The Environmental Sustainability Dashboard enables companies to track and report on four environmental performance indicators related to energy and emissions as prescribed by the G3 guidelines from the Global Reporting Initiative, an internationally recognised organisation formed to facilitate sustainability reporting.

Knowledge is power

Microsoft Dynamics AX integrates environmental data with business data thereby allowing companies to make decisions that consider their environmental impacts. When businesses understand the resource consumption of their operations, managers can make fiscally and environmentally sound decisions about the way their companies are run.
