Wouldn't it be great if businesses could accurately estimate the benefits of using technology, both in terms of money savings and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions? Now they can.

The AT&T Carbon Impact Assessment Tool allows businesses to calculate the estimated GHG emissions and cost savings of using solutions that replace or reduce business travel and increase productivity and collaboration.

How It Works

Using data such as company size, number of employees and employees' travel plans, the Carbon Impact Assessment Tool calculates the estimated return on investment (ROI), GHG emissions avoided, and productivity enhancements that could be achieved.

These services enable telecommuting, collaboration across locations and time zones, and virtual face-to-face meetings thus reducing, and in some cases eliminating, the need for business travel.

The tool can display the results of using these technologies in user-friendly terms, such as the equivalent number of passenger cars removed from the road, trees that no longer need to be planted to offset emissions, or houses' worth of energy use avoided.

"Analytical, fact-based tools are invaluable for decision-makers, especially for determining non-obvious tradeoffs for complicated choices. Therefore, it's great to see one added to our toolbox," says Dr. Michael E. Webber, Department of Mechanical Engineering and Co-Director, Clean Energy Incubator, The University of Texas at Austin.
