I typically don't use this blog for marketing messages, but I want to take a little space here just to point out some important things that are in the CleanMetrics pipeline. We are taking our life-cycle assessment methodology, software modules and data, and creating a series of highly customized industry-specific carbon footprinting tools. All are hosted software solutions that can be accessed through the web and will be available by annual subscription.
- The first of these is BuildingScope, which is being released in the next week or two. BuildingScope will address life-cycle GHG emissions and carbon storage in all phases of a building's life cycle, including construction, operation (including energy and water consumption), land use, landscaping, waste disposal, etc.
- Next in line is FoodCarbonScope, which is due around end of June. FoodCarbonScope will provide life-cycle carbon footprint analysis for food products, including agricultural production, processing, packaging, storage, transport, cooking, and waste disposal.
- Last in this list is ApparelScope, which will be ready in July/August. ApparelScope will target life-cycle carbon footprint analysis for clothing and accessories.
