Environment Tools website launched

ENDS/Aether logosENDS and environmental consultancy Aether together announce the first global directory and marketplace for environmental accounting tools: Environment Tools.

This is an important initiative in a growing area. Organisations increasingly rely on specialist tools to manage and report environmental data. The range and complexity of tools in the market is ballooning, and until now there has been no single point of reference for potential users.

Environment Tools is the world's first comprehensive directory for all kinds of environmental accounting tools and by far best source for finding, comparing and discussing the fast growing number of tools that are available.

Recent research has predicted rapid growth in markets for tools like carbon accounting software, as organisations seek to reduce costs and improve environmental credentials. Users often find it hard to choose from the plethora of tools available.

Environment Tools is free to access. It already lists over 300 tools and the number continues to rise. Over 90 tools vendors have already registered. The website enables users, including businesses, public sector organisations, schools and individuals, to filter and find relevant tools. Users can also add more tools and ratings and reviews, generating a unique source of opinion and guidance to support intelligent business decisions. The Directory also enables users to be notified about developments of existing or new tools.

To enhance the free listings, dynamic tailored advertising space is available for service providers wishing to enhance their profile on the Environment Tools Directory.

The directory covers the full range of environmental accounting tools, with an initial bias towards air quality and carbon and other greenhouse gas emission tools. Tools are being progressively added in other areas, including climate change adaptation, water pollution, waste minimisation, ecological footprinting and life cycle assessment tools.
