OneBusiness ERP Carbon Accounting Software Features

OneBusiness ERP offers a comprehensive carbon accounting module that empowers organizations to track and manage their carbon footprint meticulously. This software is designed to help businesses meet regulatory requirements, enhance sustainability initiatives, and improve overall environmental performance. Key features of the software include:

Scope 1, Scope 2, and Scope 3 Emissions Calculations

OneBusiness ERP’s carbon accounting module supports the detailed calculation of Scope 1, Scope 2, and Scope 3 emissions:

  • Scope 1 Emissions: Direct greenhouse gas emissions from owned or controlled sources, such as fuel combustion within the company’s facilities and vehicles.
  • Scope 2 Emissions: Indirect emissions from the generation of purchased electricity, steam, heating, and cooling consumed by the company.
  • Scope 3 Emissions: All other indirect emissions in a company’s value chain. This includes upstream and downstream activities, such as business travel, employee commuting, and emissions from purchased goods and services.

Real-Time CO2 Emissions Calculations via API

The carbon accounting software integrates with various external data sources through APIs to automate the calculation of CO2 emissions. After users enter relevant parameters, such as fuel consumption, electricity usage, or travel distances, the software utilizes these APIs to fetch emission factors and perform precise calculations. This automation ensures accuracy and efficiency in tracking the carbon footprint.

Facility to Record Offset/Credit Projects

To support sustainability efforts, OneBusiness ERP includes functionality to record and manage carbon offset and credit projects. Companies can log details of their investments in renewable energy projects, reforestation initiatives, or other carbon-offsetting activities. This feature allows organizations to balance emissions by investing in environmental projects that reduce or remove CO2 from the atmosphere.

Employee Commuting and Business Travel Emissions

OneBusiness ERP’s carbon accounting module accounts for the emissions generated from employee commuting and business travel. Companies can input data related to the modes of transportation, distances travelled, and frequency of travel. The software calculates the corresponding CO2 emissions, providing a comprehensive view of the environmental impact of employee mobility.

CO2 Emissions Based on Production Orders

The software calculates CO2 emissions based on production orders for manufacturing and production-centric organizations. The software provides insights into the emissions associated with each production order by inputting data related to raw materials, energy consumption, and production processes. This feature helps businesses identify high-emission activities and explore opportunities for reducing their carbon footprint.


OneBusiness ERP’s carbon accounting software is a robust tool designed to streamline the tracking and management of greenhouse gas emissions across an organization. By covering Scope 1, Scope 2, and Scope 3 emissions, facilitating real-time calculations via API, and supporting offset projects, the software empowers companies to take actionable steps toward sustainability. The detailed tracking of emissions from employee commuting, business travel, and production processes further ensures that all aspects of a company’s carbon footprint are accounted for and managed effectively.
