TORONTO, ONTARIO–(Marketwire – July 28, 2010) – Zerofootprint, a leading organization in the global fight against climate change, and SANYO Canada Inc. (SANYO), a subsidiary of SANYO Electric Co., Ltd., today announced a multi-year strategic partnership designed to mutually benefit both companies by sharing technology and tools to assist customers in reducing their environmental impact.
When purchasing solutions combining the various environmental and energy-related products from SANYO, customers will have the option to calculate their company’s environmental impact through Zerofootprint’s VELO™ Carbon Management Software.
SANYO’s solutions consist of technologies that contribute to energy generation (solar photovoltaic modules), energy conservation (high-efficiency HVAC and LED systems), and energy storage (industrial rechargeable batteries). Complimenting these technologies, VELO enables companies to manage the complex data requirements and operations for compiling their carbon footprint. It also allows them to measure and control their carbon exposure.
“Zerofootprint and the VELO Carbon Management Software present an exciting opportunity for SANYO Canada,” said Koshi Terakawa, President of SANYO Canada, Inc. “With this agreement, we offer customers the technology to reduce their carbon footprint as well as the tools to monitor progress and improve decision making.”
In addition, this collaborative project provides an opportunity for SANYO to increase the exposure for its Smart Energy Solutions by presenting them to Zerofootprint customers as solutions to assist in reducing their carbon footprint.
“We are thrilled to be working closely with SANYO, a leading provider of products that assist customers in reducing their environmental impact,” said Dr. Ron Dembo, CEO and founder of Zerofootprint. “We believe this relationship will make it much easier for customers to make sound environmental choices and meet their regulatory reporting needs.”
