amee wants to solve an important problem by bringing big data and analytics together to enable transparent and consistent environmental insight to drive bottom line benefits. amee supports the proven view that being sustainable is better for business and making sustainability transparent will create financial improvement. Ultimately, amee helps all UK businesses better understand the risks and costs they face in managing finite environment resources such as energy, water, and waste. Through a clearer understanding of the risks/costs of finite environmental resources, amee helps UK businesses become more financially efficient and competitive over time. amee is starting its focus on energy emissions, but amee will quickly extend to water, waste and other finite resources.
amee has developed a free service, which is now available for all UK businesses on 31 January 2013. Any business in the UK can go to www.amee.com, find their company and use the free service to update information, compare their businesses to others and gain insight over time to risks/costs they face in the management of limited resources. Businesses can also report their environmental information in one place and eliminate the need for different reports each time they participate in a tender process.
amee is managing environmental data just like financial data. amee is managing a substantial database of all UK businesses. amee has sourced every available free public disclosure of greenhouse gas emissions. Just as companies report financials according to accounting standards, amee links its reporting to globally recognised environmental standards such the Greenhouse Gas Protocols (e.g., Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3). When environmental information is not available, amee estimates consumption and reflects our estimate in its ameeScore. The algorithms behind the ameeScore were developed by people who have deep knowledge; in both business information and the GHGP standards.
amee invites every company in the UK to claim their ameeScore at www.amee.com, update their relevant environmental data, compare their performance and demonstrate improvements over time……all for free. amee is hoping that by enabling businesses to easily report and understand environmental data in way similar to financial data, amee will provide powerful and free tools to enable UK businesses to be more financially efficient and competitive
