Atrius Sustainability Starter Now Available as Entry-Level Carbon Accounting Tool for Small & Mid-Sized Businesses

Atrius Sustainability Starter provides automated carbon emissions data processing to help small and medium-sized businesses get started with sustainability reporting.

Atrius, part of Acuity Brands, Inc. announced the availability of Atrius® Sustainability Starter, a free entry-level carbon accounting solution that enables companies to track their carbon emissions (Scopes 1 and 2). With more businesses committing to sustainability initiatives in the face of climate change and increasing environmental, social and governance (ESG) regulations, there is greater urgency in finding solutions that optimize the time and data intensive portions of creating corporate sustainability reports. Atrius Sustainability Starter simplifies the emissions calculation process by reducing time spent on carbon accounting in spreadsheets, an effort that 21% of industry professionals are currently struggling with.

“Atrius Sustainability Starter is an introduction to emissions tracking that removes the two biggest hurdles small and mid-sized businesses have when they start their sustainability journey: time and money,” said Sandeep Modhvadia, Vice President, Product, Atrius, Acuity Brands. “Fifty-five percent of surveyed US-based public companies are using spreadsheets to gather and calculate emissions according to Ernst & Young, and the number is likely significantly higher for smaller companies. Manual reporting methods waste valuable employee time and are prone to human error, which can impact businesses that share their data with customers or other stakeholders.”Sandeep Modhvadia,

Users input their data into Atrius Sustainability Starter with help from guided product tours, enabling self-service emissions calculations. Simplifying how organizations track, measure, and optimize their emissions outputs frees up valuable time and resources that might otherwise be spent on manual calculations and verifications. With additional capacity and more resources invested in automating manual processes, sustainability professionals have the potential to accelerate their progress on other operational goals.

“At Amy’s, our love for people and the planet is at the core of everything we do. The Atrius Sustainability Starter is an accessible entry point for any organization to expand ESG objectives, reduce carbon footprint, and play an active role combating climate change. We’re proud to include Atrius Sustainability’s Enterprise offering as a key solution for helping us track and achieve our sustainability goals,”Renaud des Rosiers,

For businesses looking to automate their carbon accounting with turnkey features for reporting, alerting and data quality control, Atrius Sustainability Starter can be upgraded to the full version of Atrius Sustainability. Atrius Sustainability Starter provides a direct upgrade path to the Enterprise tier that offers customers greater data automation and integration abilities. With Enterprise tier, customers can expand their use of the platform as they continue reaching their sustainability goals.
