Monitoring Energy and Carbon

You can’t manage what you can’t measure, is and old management adage that remains accurate today. Unless you measure something, you don’t know if it is getting better or worse. You can’t make a plan for improvement if you don’t measure to see what is getting better and what isn’t. The monitoring of Energy and Carbon performance is therefore the starting point of any energy/carbon strategy regardless of the sector you are in: national, provincial or local governmental; non-governmental or the private sector.

As EcoMetrix we know what it takes to gear an organisation towards energy and carbon management, realizing the need for effective systems as well as an understanding of climate change and energy issues in order to get employees, citizens and suppliers to comply with reporting standards. Knowing what to report is one thing but in the end personnel needs to understand the importance to report accurately and responsibly. Quality in, is quality out and – unfortunately – vice versa. No matter how technically geniously systems are put together one is dependent on the users of any system to obtain accurate and valuable information.

We therefore provide support in the following areas:

  • Carbon footprints and energy audits.
  • Assessment of monitoring requirements and objectives.
  • Design of tailor made or mainstream monitoring solutions.
  • Capacity building and training regarding climate change and energy performance.
