EE uses CloudApps software to measure carbon footprint


Operator to use energy consumption measurement software to help meet government commitments on carbon output

Everything Everywhere EE is to monitor the carbon footprint of its locations across the UK using a tool developed by sustainability software developer CloudApps

The monitoring is designed to help EE meet its Carbon Reduction Commitment to the government.

The CloudApps suite (pictured) enable firms to measure energy consumption in terms of kWh, carbon equivalent in CO2e, as well as a measure of data centre efficency called Power Usage Effectiveness.

CloudApps said the suite will allow EE to measure energy consumption across its 720 stores in realtime and easily collate the information.

EE director of property and workplace Matthew Wherry said:“The work we have embarked on with CloudApps underlines our commitment to working with the government to meet the UK’s carbon reduction targets.

“The wide-ranging remit we have jointly developed with CloudApps now covers everything from our 720 Orange, T-Mobile and Everything Everywhere retail stores to the diesel in our data centre back-up generators, enabling us to reduce our carbon emissions across the whole business.”

CloudApps CEO Peter Grant said: “CloudApps’ relationship with Everything Everywhere is symbolic of the type of customer opportunity that we are increasingly seeing for our business. Everything Everywhere is a complex business with strong commitments to the environment – specifically carbon management.”
