Increasingly scrutinized by financial markets, customers and government regulators, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions have become a key benchmark for environmental performance. They also represent an important cost to businesses as new laws and regulations come into effect.
Quantifying GHG emissions is the first step in developing a long term plan to reduce emissions. The following services are designed to help your organization measure its GHG emissions, and develop long-term objectives and feasible action plans to reduce them. That’s good for you - and good for the environment!
At the federal level, and in some provinces, large GHG emitters are required by law to report their GHG emissions. Voluntary programs, such as the Carbon Disclosure Project, and funds, such as the Ethical Funds are bringing increasing pressure to quantify and disclose GHG emissions. EEM has the expertise to help your organization design and implement its own program to measure and disclose GHG emissions.
Did you know you needed certification to sell GHG emissions on the carbon market or reduce them to meet government regulations? EEM will assist your business design and validate your plan, as well as verify and register your GHG emission reductions.
Increasingly, your customers and end consumers want to know the amount of GHG produced by the products and services they buy. We can help calculate the carbon footprint of your products in order to apply a carbon label or generate a carbon calculator that will allow customers to optimize orders based on an estimate of the carbon footprint of their various options.
