Three times global sustainability leader taps 15% savings in 2013
LONDON – Feb 9th, 2012– CloudApps, the enterprise application leader in sustainability, today announced its first FTSE 100-listed customer, international engineering and project management company, AMEC (LSE:AMEC).
CloudApps Sustainability Suite and its advanced employee engagement solution, SuMo, will combine to drive some of the most aggressive sustainability targets on the planet. The company is aiming for a 2013 reduction of 15% in carbon emissions against a 2008 baseline, followed by falls of 40% by 2020 and a 60% reduction by 2030.
AMEC is a global employer of some 27,000 and widely acknowledged as a global sustainability champion. Its worldwide operations have seen it recognised every year this decade as the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) industry leader for oil equipment and services. Customers such as BP, Shell, the US Navy and EDF rely on AMEC services ranging from environmental and front end engineering design at the start of a project to decommissioning assets at the end.
Reviewing its on-going commitment to Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) reporting, AMEC’s senior management team searched for an advanced solution which could engage employees across the business, ran sustainably and was capable of meeting not only carbon and environmental metrics but could cater for social and economic measures also.
The CloudApps solution, built on the world’s most sustainable cloud computing platform, delivered by market leader salesforce.com, adds no additional footprint as AMEC rolls it out to 40 international operations globally. In addition to carbon and energy reporting, CloudApps customers measure water, waste and corporate social and economic metrics, making it ideal for future wide scale projects.
Peter Grant, CEO of CloudApps said: “AMEC’s management vision on sustainability and its stewardship of precious natural resources has led the oil industry since the turn of the decade. We are incredibly proud to help them deliver world-leading sustainability outcomes. AMEC typifies the sort of environmentally-aware leaders which has fired up the CloudApps team since our inception.”
