BT to extend Olympic carbon footprinting model to more customers

BT to extend Olympic carbon footprinting model to more customers
BT has announced the model used to calculate the carbon footprint of services it is offering to the 2012 Olympics will be extended for use by other customers.

The telecommunications provider told Business Green the service, which is based on the Greenhouse Gas Protocol, covers the carbon produced by both the infrastructure installed and the services provided to support it and will now be available to corporate customers.

Graham Seabrook,head of carbon footprinting at BT, told the news provider: "Many of our customers are asking for data on the carbon footprint of our services, particularly in the run-up to the next phase of the Carbon Reduction Commitment [CRC] and we can now provide that information."

Introduced in April 2010, the CRC is mandatory for all large businesses and public sector organisations, with the first allowances under the scheme set to be introduced in 2012.

BT has designed a converged network for the London Olympic Games, which promotes the reuse of materials and "allows multi-purpose networking resources to be shared securely".  ADNFCR-1235-ID-800359619-ADNFCR
