"Increased energy efficiency allows companies to dramatically reduce costs and improve the overall efficiency of their IT operations while at the same time supporting a corporate responsibility agenda," said Rich Lechner, IBM's vice-president of IT optimization. "A key ingredient for clients to effectively become more environmentally aware and efficient is measuring where they are."

Energy efficiency certificates are a recognised form of documenting energy conservation. Their aim is to provide financial incentive and recognition for businesses and electricity providers that increase their efficiency.
