Until a price is put on carbon in Australia, carbon reporting will continue to be carried out on spreadsheets, according to CarbonSystems CEO David Solsky.

"There's just so much uncertainty," he told ZDNet Australia. "In the absence of certainty people just stop making decisions."
Over the last six months, there had been a "horrible drop-off" in decision making of large entities, he said.
...
Although it's mandatory for many large companies to report following legislation brought in by the Howard Government in 2007, this reporting is often done on spreadsheets, according to Solsky.
It gets the jobs done, but the reporting isn't robust, he said. He believes that if there were a financial incentive for getting it right, dictated by a carbon price, the systems would start flying out the door.
"If you have to make hardcore financial decisions, then the quality of the underlying data becomes more of an imperative," he said.

"Within big business there is a recognition that, irrespective of when we get an emissions trading scheme (ETS) and exactly what shape it takes, fundamentally we are moving toward a more carbon-constrained economy and there will be upward pressure on energy prices," Carbon Systems chief executive David Solsky said.

As one of only a handful of Australian suppliers, Mr. Solsky said there had been a strong upswing in the number of companies introducing energy and carbon accounting software.
Mr Solsky said Carbon Systems had installed its Energy and Carbon Intelligence System (ECIS) in about 50 of the top 200 companies in Australia in the past 12 to 18 months.
The ECIS software captures and collates environmental data, such as energy, fuel, water and carbon emissions, helping companies identify and act to reduce emissions.
Mr. Solsky said the greatest demand was coming from mid to large manufacturers and miners, with property, distribution and retail also a rapidly growing market.

"We also have a significant number of customers classed as voluntary reporters who want the data for corporate social responsibility or triple bottom line reporting (financial, social and environmental)," Mr. Solsky said.
He said the ability to accurately and continuously monitor electricity and fuel emissions could have huge cost-saving implications for clients.
"We've seen commercial office buildings where lighting retrofits have saved hundreds of thousands in energy costs."
In one large-scale project, a client switched to generating electricity from gas on site that saved millions of dollars over a three to five-year period.
"Today it is about being able to measure baselines and benchmark the energy and carbon performance of their business operations," Mr. Solsky said
"We are finding that with most of our clients there are a lot of energy efficiency projects that are being juggled today, regardless of having a carbon price."
Mr Solsky said a carbon tax would increase the amount of viable energy and carbon saving projects.
