Access launches emissions accounting package

What is believed to be the first ever accounting system that calculates the
size of a business’s carbon footprint was unveiled by Access Accounting at the
Softworld trade show yesterday.

The new technology has been developed with the help of DEFRA and the Carbon
Trust and will allow users to account for their carbon emissions on a
transaction-by-transaction basis.

By inputting details such as miles traveled for distribution teams and the
amount of watts used on electricity bills alongside standard accounting entries,
users will be able to measure the amount of carbon a business uses.

‘When we looked at the means by which customers could easily and cost
effectively measure carbon emissions, it was clear there was a lack of practical
tools out there,’ said Access Accounting managing director John Beech.

The new functionality will be standard with the Access Dimensions package at
no extra cost.
