Track emissions with new Green Badger Sustainability portal
Green Badger, the cloud-based LEED certification software solution for the construction industry, has released the Jobsite Sustainability portal.
The platform enables builders, general contractors and owners to benchmark and track carbon emissions, jobsite wellness, and energy and water consumption throughout the construction process.
The new functionality allows construction projects to incorporate sustainability goals across all jobsites, while comparing to internal or industry standards.
"Incorporating sustainability into all projects is important, even when a third party green certification isn't required," said Tommy Linstroth, founder and CEO of Green Badger. "Carbon and energy are traditionally focuses once a building is occupied. Its critical to start looking more holistically at the entire construction process, and work to reduce the emissions associate with construction activities and product transport."
Green Badger's software has helped hundreds of construction teams meet LEED certification goals, and the new jobsite sustainability portal will complement those efforts by:
- Benchmarking construction energy and water consumption
- Tracking carbon emissions from energy use, product transit, and employee travel/commute
- Providing in-field reporting for erosion control, indoor air quality and wellness
"You can't improve what you can't measure", said Linstroth. "Benchmarking current practices is the first step to begin to make substantive changes to reducing energy consumption and carbon emissions. The Jobsite Sustainability portal streamlines and automates that process for builders and general contractors, and stays with our motto – Sustainability Simplified."
