Carbon Accounting Software[edit]

Already earlier in 2011, people argued against simply listing carbon accounting software here: "This is really not a Wikipedia article at all, just a list of adverts. There's even a link to "Follow Us on Twitter" on one of the entries!". So, instead of putting such links here, an overview on them might be more suitable. Any opinions?

I created a new list article, and merged the data from this article to that one: List of carbon accounting software. The new list article is discriminate, focused, structured and specific to carbon accounting software. Northamerica1000(talk) 14:16, 17 December 2011 (UTC)

Suggestions[edit]

  • I propose to expand the article by providing an explanation of carbon and accounting; using work by Donald MacKenzie as a reference. I would also explain some of the standards used for carbon accounting. Ingmar.lippert (talk) 23:05, 3 December 2011 (UTC)

Discussion of the main definition[edit]

It currently says "Carbon accounting is the accounting process undertaken to measure the amount of carbon dioxide equivalents that will not be released into the atmosphere as a result of Flexible Mechanisms projects under the Kyoto Protocol." This definition seems very restricted and especially does not correspond how it is used in practice for at least two significant reasons: a) carbon accounting often refers to how many emissions are actually produced/emitted. thus, carbon accounting for emission reductions is simply a specific part of carbon accounting. b) carbon accounting relating to the Kyoto Protocol is also only one of many reasons why an organisation (like a government or a corporation or even an individual) may perform carbon accounting. If nobody reacts to this, I will rewrite the current formulation accordingly.Ingmar.lippert (talk) 23:05, 3 December 2011 (UTC)

It seems all right at this time, in which the wording is, "One form of Carbon accounting is...", which states the Kyoto Protocol as an example (one form). Northamerica1000(talk) 14:35, 17 December 2011 (UTC)

Merging article with "Enterprise carbon accounting"[edit]

Somebody proposed merging the page Enterprise carbon accounting with Carbon accounting. As both pages cover similar territory, this seems to make sense. Currently the two pages present quite different approaches to the topic. It would benefit the reader to have one page that reviews the technicalities and controversies around enterprise/corporate and non-corporate carbon accounting.
