Alibaba Cloud launches SaaS platform to help businesses achieve climate neutrality goals
Alibaba Cloud has launched Energy Expert, a software-as-a-service (SaaS) product. This is a sustainability platform that helps companies measure, analyze and manage the carbon emissions that their business activities trigger.
Energy Expert provides recommendations for energy savings, and helps customers automate the process of carbon accounting and reporting at the company and product level. In addition, the tool provides real-time statistics showing sustainability impacts. As a result, informed decisions can be made.
With this software, a company can identify the sources of carbon emissions from daily business activities as well as the entire lifecycle of its products, based on PAS 2060 and ISO 14064 carbon neutrality standards.
To help customers minimize their overall environmental impact, Energy Expert also provides actionable optimization plans with recommendations that balance business growth with environmental impact. These include increasing the use of clean energy, reducing excessive electricity use at peak times, and optimizing the supply chain from materials sourcing to product shipping.
Since its launch in February 2022, the software has helped more than 2,000 businesses in China and achieved energy savings of more than 2 million kilowatt hours per day, or a reduction of 400,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions, according to Alibaba.
