Carbon Management Software: How To Design Your RFP And Create Your Vendor Shortlist

Thursday, March 03, 2022

Thousands of firms are making commitments to achieve net zero emissions or to migrate to a lower carbon operational model but few have a digital platform in place which is fit for purpose. 

Verdantix has identified a raft of new business requirements for enterprise carbon management spanning approval processes for regulated disclosures, accurate emissions calculations, applying a carbon price to internal operations, designing science-aligned carbon reduction pathways and monitoring implementation of carbon reduction and decarbonization projects. This webinar will provide stakeholders in carbon management with a detailed walk through of best practices to create an RFP for carbon management software and a categorization of vendors to understand the ability to deliver against different requirements.
