Regional Environmental Planning, Inc. in Japan Takes First Location Carbon Neutral

Chicago, IL, August 24, 2020: Net Zero Analysis & Design Corp. is pleased to announce that, Regional Environmental Planning, Inc., of Tokyo, Japan has begun their journey toward full carbon neutrality with the first of 7 locations. The carbon footprint for the Nagoya office has been calculated and offset, bringing that location to carbon neutral.

“Our company is committed to Natural Environmental Study and Environmental Consultation Work throughout Japan. We are seriously concerned with climate change issues which impact our ecosystem and threaten our way of life. We are delighted that our Nagoya office has gone carbon neutral by purchasing wind energy carbon offsets,” said Mr. Satoshi Takatsuka, President of Regional Environmental Planning, Inc. “Though our Environmental Management System reduces our energy usage, we still have carbon emissions. It has been extremely meaningful for us to learn about our carbon footprint, and the opportunity to purchase verified offsets from the Entrex Carbon Market will help us to fulfill our company mission of sustainability. We sincerely wish that many businesses in Japan would do the same.”

George Sullivan, President and CEO of Net Zero Analysis commented, “Leveraging our qualifications as ISO14000 and 14001 – 2015 International Auditors and our expertise in carbon footprint calculation, we are working with the Regional Environmental Planning to guide them through gathering relevant data concerning their operations, and to determine both their immediate and future carbon-reduction goals. We have applied our Carbon Footprint Calculator to their Nagoya location’s energy-use data and are developing a Carbon Replacement and Energy Efficiency Plan to tackle the company’s concerns with future carbon mitigation.“

Stephen Watkins, CEO of the Entrex Carbon Market added, “The combination of Net Zero’s international carbon footprint calculator, and the Entrex platform gives climate-concerned companies a user-friendly way to navigate a rigorous carbon-neutrality verification process and to receive assigned and retired regulatory compliant carbon offset securities. Carbon offsetting is an important prong in an organization’s climate action goals. It’s great to have Regional Environmental Planning, Inc. on board as one of the Entrex Carbon Market Members.”

Regional Environmental Planning plans to deploy the same auditing and offsetting process for each of its locations, with the goal of 100% carbon neutrality company-wide.
