Northeastern dairy producer adopts carbon management program
Cabot Creamery Cooperative will deploy EnerNOC’s CarbonSMART to streamline data collection process, provide a comprehensive and accurate overview of greenhouse gas emissions, and help prioritize energy efficiency strategies.
EnerNOC Inc., a leading provider of SaaS-based carbon management applications, has announced that Cabot Creamery Cooperative, a major northeastern dairy producer and a leader in sustainable business operations, will deploy EnerNOC's CarbonSMART to streamline its data collection process, provide a comprehensive and accurate overview of its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and help prioritize energy efficiency strategies. Cabot's Vermont-based facilities include dairy manufacturing facilities, distribution and warehousing, and administrative offices.
"At Cabot, we care deeply about our environmental impact, and we know that every step we take to reduce our emissions also reduces our overall energy spending," said Jed Davis, Director of Sustainability, Cabot Creamery. "Using CarbonSMART gives us at once a robust tool to accurately measure our carbon footprint as well as a comprehensive system to manage our energy savings programs. We recognize the benefits of using enterprise-level software to meet all of our internal
requirements, as well as those of customers and other key stakeholders."
"The most laborious part of carbon management is centralizing and tracking energy consumption, which often comprises more than 80 percent of our customers' carbon footprint. Since Cabot has been a DemandSMART customer since 2007, we can easily import energy consumption data into CarbonSMART to assemble a detailed footprint. It's just one more way that EnerNOC accelerates customers' ability to focus more time and effort on remediation," said Gregg Dixon, Senior Vice President of Marketing, EnerNOC.
"Cabot Creamery has shown again and again that sustainable business practices aren't just good for the environment; they're good for business," said Tim Healy, Chairman and CEO, EnerNOC. "As an early adopter of DemandSMART, Cabot knows firsthand that EnerNOC is focused on delivering value to the bottom line through practical, sustainable energy management applications, and we are excited to extend the relationship to include CarbonSMART."
Cabot's partnership with EnerNOC has helped the company achieve numerous awards and recognition for its sustainability practices. In 2009, Cabot was honored with an Energy Project Award by the Connecticut Chapter of the Association of Energy Engineers for its efforts in
In addition to demand response and carbon management applications, EnerNOC also offers a sophisticated data-driven energy efficiency application, SiteSMART, for customers that are looking to further reduce energy consumption and minimize their carbon footprint.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
