Microsoft has announced an environmental sustainability dashboard for Microsoft Dynamics AX.

The toolset, available to Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 customers at no additional charge, will enable midsize businesses to capture data needed to measure key indicators related to energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, helping them pinpoint ways to cut their energy consumption and costs.

Companies can collect auditable data on four of the core environmental performance indicators identified by the Global Reporting Initiative for energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions, including direct on-premise fuel consumption and the carbon footprint of their power usage with utilities and other vendors.

The dashboard harnesses role-tailored design from Microsoft Dynamics, which equips employees with a personalised role centre based on the information they need to do their job.

The dashboard itself serves as the environmental manager’s role centre, delivering the information crucial to performing that job.

Reports can be easily surfaced in employees’ individual role centres in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 or other familiar productivity tools, such as Microsoft Office Sharepoint Server.

Microsoft has also released detailed instructions on how businesses can implement environmental management accounting principles within Microsoft Dynamics GP and Microsoft Dynamics NAV, to gain greater visibility of their environmental footprint.

The resource complements environmental management accounting guidance issued for Microsoft Dynamics AX in July 2008.

The release enables Microsoft Dynamics partners to expand their business offerings.

Comprehensive guidance, available with the dashboard, takes partners and customers through how they can work together to create a greenhouse gas inventory to determine a company’s emissions.
