Leading edge methods to future-proof your compliance reporting
Carbon Accounting, reductions & EPDs
We help you set up data collection, management, and reporting systems that conform to globally applicable standards and yield defensible results.

Verification, Validation & Attestation
We can act as an internal auditor for your organization’s data or as a third-party auditor providing limited or reasonable assurance for your external reporting.
Expert Witness Services
Leverage decades of varied professional experience in building science, energy, and carbon markets to support your case.

Protect Your Organization's Integrity
Maintain the bottom line and your fiduciary duties by working with forward-thinking, experienced, knowledgeable, certified, and insured climate reporting professionals.
International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standards are written by technical committees made up of globally-established experts. They are reviewed by other experts and their publication as an International Standard requires approval by at least 75% of the organization’s member bodies who are casting a vote on the publication.
The level of expertise and technical rigor is unmatched which is why regulators often rely on them to develop better policies and rules.
We certainly can. We can also explain why the Protocol’s limitations might leave holes in your compliance reporting that could make your climate-related performance appear less competitive. Our methods can help you avoid the risk of that.
No, we don’t…for the simple reason that automated platforms can’t keep up with the rate of change in the marketplace. We are a long way from being able to take the human element out of carbon accounting, considering how many variables are included in a compliance-grade data set and how often data sources and factors are updated.
We have developed tools that make our process accurate and efficient, but that are currently not very flashy.
Internet of Things devices have their place, but they can be very expensive. We can show you how to get your compliance-appropriate data through established channels that are easier on the budget.
Everybody is in someone else’s value chain. Organizations that are required to report need Scope 3 data (That comes from your company!).
We feel confident stating that everyone will need to measure their carbon footprint and be ready to report, given how far-reaching the existing and proposed regulations are.
Yes. We’ll help you review sources for carbon reductions that meet established standards and rules for use. We hate to see money wasted on questionable environmental attributes that lack the right documentation and could be voided.
I was told that I should look for a LEED AP to advise us on climate-related matters. Are you certified?
The LEED Accredited Professional certification indicates ONLY that a person knows how to navigate the limited scope of the LEED rating system (administered by the non-profit USGBC). It indicates no other skill set and it’s not safe to assume that person’s knowledge extends to other professional services or scientific matters.
Since it’s not relevant to what we do, it’s not a certification we carry.
We hired a "carbon expert" but they couldn’t help us with things we though were pretty basic and Our legal department said some of the consultant's recommendations could get us into trouble! Isn’t there some minimum knowledge base for climate consultants?!
We hate to break it to you, Pardner, but as with any nascent industry, until regulation and the marketplace mature, it’s the Wild West out there.
The best way to vet consultants is to make sure you have a cross-functional team involved in the conversation. The interview process should not be left to the sustainability department alone. It should include legal, EHS, finance, the executive team, and anyone else on the hook for dealing with regulation and the consequences of getting it wrong.
