Reno-based company helps local governments track emissions

There is an old saying in the business world: what is measured is managed. One of the challenges in managing greenhouse gas emissions that warm the atmosphere is that they are not measured very well or quickly. A startup from Reno wants to change that.

Ledger8760 measures real-time energy, emissions and utility information from hundreds of sources. The company was signed by the state of Nevada, Washoe County, and the city of Reno. She will receive $ 6,500 a month from the county and city and an additional $ 1,500 a month from the state for the next three years.

The aim is to monitor and reduce the emissions stipulated in the Paris Climate Agreement.
