Locus Technologies Offers Greenhouse Gas Emissions Verification Services

Locus Is One of Only a Few California Air Resources Board Certified GHG Verification Organizations

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/18/10 -- Locus Technologies (Locus), the industry leader in web-based environmental compliance and information management software, has been accredited by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to provide greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions verification services. Locus is one of just a few companies to obtain this accreditation.

The accreditation allows Locus to provide verification services for GHG emissions reports. The verification team at Locus consists of experts in all reporting requirements. Locus' in-house Lead Verifiers are certified in all sectors, including refineries, cement production and electricity transactions, to provide verification services for all reporting scopes.

On December 6, 2007, pursuant to the California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006, the CARB approved the Mandatory Reporting of Greenhouse Gas Emissions regulation. The regulation requires the mandatory reporting and verification of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Facilities subject to GHG reporting are mandated to have their greenhouse gas emissions verified beginning in 2010, for their 2009 reported emissions. Facilities will be subject to either annual or triennial verification. Only CARB accredited verification bodies and verifiers may provide GHG emissions reporting verification.

"GHG emissions are becoming important parameters to accurately measure and report. Locus is excited to offer services to aid clients in meeting the new GHG reporting requirements," stated Dr. Neno Duplan, President and CEO of Locus.

Locus has also developed a cloud computing based software program to collect, manage, and report GHG emissions. "With the training and certification in validation, we are confident that the emissions data in our software can be quickly and easily verified by a third party," said Dr. Duplan.

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption.

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
