Enterprise Carbon Accounting will see explosive growth

A new research report by Groom Energy Solutions predicts that despite the slow economy software purchases for Enterprise Carbon Accounting (ECA) will grow 600% by 2011.

The research report identifies three main drivers for the future growth: customers and investor demanding improvements in company image, cost savings from sustainability initiatives and supply-chain programs like Walmart’s Supplier Sustainability Assessment.


Meanwhile, the number of ECA solution vendors has grown to 60 and the research report aims to guide decision makers in choosing the right offering for their needs. The report evaluates vendors using the following criteria: number of customer deployments, technology features, market vision and financial stability.  


PE INTERNATIONAL has been identified as an Emerging Leader based on these criteria for the second consecutive year. Paul Baier, vice president of consulting at Groom Energy and author of the report confirms “With its large ECA customer base and global organization, PE INTERNATIONAL is ideally positioned for success in the market.”
