Energy Points Selected as "Invention" Winner in BBJ's 2012 Best Green Practices in Business Awards
BOSTON --(Business Wire)--
Points, the calculation engine for environmental sustainability,
today announced it has been selected as a winner of this year's Boston
Business Journal Best
Green Practices in Business awards in the Invention category. Energy
Points was selected for launching the world's first universal metric for
measuring sustainability across all environmental domains, including
fuel, electricity, transportation, water and more.
"Energy Points is based on the concept that environmental sustainability
should be based on math, not adjectives. Our technology is designed to
quantify disparate resources as energy and provide an accurate and
intuitive measurement of that resource consumption," said Dr. Ory Zik,
founder and CEO of Energy Points. "This award is a testament to our
success in developing a calculation engine that can measure
environmental susainability across all domains. We're honored to be
selected from an impressive group of companies."
Energy Points provides a true measure of environmental
sustainability by converting all domains (including electricity,
water, transportation, etc.) into a single common unit of measurement.
The EnergyPoints platform makes sustainability understandable for a
broad, non-technical audience- moving the discussion beyond
non-intuitive metrics. Currently in pilots with Fortune 500 companies
and top government agencies across the U.S., Energy Points enables
organizations make comparative, intuitive and fact-based decisions
across all business locations, generating a greater financial and
environmental return. Businesses can also measure their exposure to the
changing energy market, estimate their environmental footprint and
compare sustainability performance against competitors.
Now in their fifth year, the 2012 Best Green Practices in Business
Awards honor the most innovative, effective leaders advancing green
workplaces in Greater Boston. Energy Points' achievements will be
honored during the BBJ's annual Best
Green Practices in Cleantech and Energy event on, May 9, 2012 at the
Seaport Boston Hotel.
